Tennis legend Monica Seles has been inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I., today.
Seles, a natural left-hander, initially became famous for her unique playing style, comprised of hard-hitting double-fisted ground strokes punctuated with loud grunts. From January 1991 to January 1993, the former World No.1 won seven of the eight Grand Slam tournaments she entered.
At the climax of her tennis career, a deranged Steffi Graf fan left Seles in a state of pain and agony after he stabbed her in the back at a tournament in Germany. This tragedy proved to be fatal, only adding one more Grand Slam title to her cabinet upon her comeback.
