Monica Seles inducted into Hall of Fame

Monice Seles was enshrined in the International Tennis Hall of Fame during a ceremony on Newport’s grass courts on Saturday.

She was the world’s no. 1 women’s player for 178 weeks overall and a winner of nine Grand Slam singles titles.

“I would like to thank all my tennis fans who were there from Day One when I was No. 1, through my stabbing, and my comeback,” Seles said.
The attack shocked the sports world. Seated during a changeover at a match in Hamburg, Germany, Seles was stabbed between the shoulder blades by a crazy Steffi Graf fan.

During the ceremony, Seles, playfully, gave one more grunt "for old, good time sakes".
