Former tennis champ Monica Seles — who can currently be seen dancing with the stars Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC-Channel 7 — is working on a memoir, to be published in 2009. She hopes ‘‘to share how I found balance, strength and happiness in my life after a rollercoaster ride of exhilarating accomplishment and sometimes overwhelming tragedy,’’ she said in a statement Wednesday.
Seles, 34, was the top-ranked women’s player for three years in the early 1990s. In 1993 she suffered a setback when a man attending a tournament in Hamburg, Germany, climbed out of the stands and stabbed her in the back. She came back two years later to reach the U.S. Open finals and in 1996 won the Australian Open. She officially retired last month.
