Monica: From Fear to Victory by Monica Seles
At only 17, Monica Seles became the number one female tennis player in the world. As she won championship after championship, leaving established stars in her wake, it seemed nothing could stop her. Nothing, but a nine-inch knife wielded by a crazed fan of Steffi Graf. The vicious attack had a profound and lasting effect on Seles. In this autobiography she describes the downward spiral of her emotions; her fear, vulnerability and depression and how she struggled to regain her health, self-confidence and drive. It gives the story of Seles's life - from her childhood as a tennis prodigy to her current comeback - as well as giving an insight into the world of professional tennis.
