    ABC just announce the lineup of contestants for '08 Dancing with the Stars, which will include tennis star Monica Seles, holder of nine majors. I wonder if she'll grunt her way through the Cha-cha? Anyway, should be interesting...

    I really like Monica a lot, but I just hope she isn't the 1st one voted off. :?

    Good luck to her though....

    I guess she would rather dance than make the comeback she said she would. <shrugs> I had wondered about the abrupt announcement of retirement and now I know why.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Abrupt announcement? We've been waiting for years for her to make that announcement, every day that went by made it more obvious.

    I'll be watching it, I want to see how both she and Kristi Yamaguchi will do.

    Yeah, my sister said a tennis player girl was on dancing with the stars and asked if I knew her. She said she was blonde and had never worn high heels before...I thought of stefi graf...and couldn't think of the right name so I googled "dancing with the stars tennis" and sure enough my messageboard beat me to it. :)

    I meant abrupt announcement because she had been training to make a comeback this year and now we hear about the "sudden" change of heart from her in her "official" retirement statement and then we hear she'll be doing Dancing with the Stars.

    An excerpt from Seles' official announcement: "I have for some time considered a return to professional play, but I have now decided not to pursue that," the 34-year-old Seles said in a statement released by her agent. "I will continue to play exhibitions, participate in charity events, promote the sport, but will no longer plan my schedule around the tour."

    Yes, saw her on Oprah yesterday (she didn't say a word). She looks fabulous! Never realized she was so tall. Poor Priscilla Presley....too much plastic surgery...she's starting to look like a marionette in the mouth area.....I hope she's not seeing the same surgeon as Michael Jackson....scary to say, but there is a resemblance:shock:

    Well Oprah didn't ask all of them a question and that magician guy kept talking. I was ahoping she would be at least asked about her recent retirement. Oh well I will try to watch the competition when she's on, I'm sure they will interview her. BTW Emmit Smith was very funny though.

    I found a funny blog entry on this that speculates about Monica grunting on the dancing show. If interested just Google "Monica Seles dancing queen." It is on another tennis company's blog so I can not post the link here.
