Monica Seles was in Paris yesterday at the Open Gdf Suez. She played doubles with Amelie Mauresmo against both Martina Hingis and Martina Navratilova just before the final. Once again I was so lucky. I was in the Stadium. I had the great chance to see Monica and to meet her. I gave her flowers and I shared a few words with her on and off the court. She’s just a wonderful woman, really kind and really empathic. Her eyes are beautiful, just because her soul is beautiful. It was a magical moment. I’m sending you few pictures of this event. If you want to put this email with the pictures on your great website, you have my authorization. I would like to share my experience with all her fans. I would like to also say something about this moment. To me, it was really important to meet her and to share a few things with her. I would like to encourage everyone to believe in their dreams. Believe me, anything is possible. Yeah to be happy and free, it’s possible… with tenacity and dignity.
