The Best Comebacks Of All-Time

Monica Seles


Like Agassi, Monica Seles was atop the tennis world in the early 90s. Seles captured three-straight Australian Open titles from 1991-93, three French Open’s from 1990-92, and consecutive US Open’s in 1991-92 — giving her eight Grand Slam titles before she turned 20. On April 30, 1993, Seles was brutally attacked during a quarterfinal match. In the aftermath of the stabbing, Seles was out of tennis for over two years. Seles reached the US Open Final in her second tournament back, ultimately falling to Steffi Graf. Seles won the 1996 Australian Open — her final Grand Slam victory — but never reached another Grand Slam Final.
