The last weight revealed in the book was 136. She looks thinner than that in that video, but I'm sure she's healthy. She works out a lot and doesn't eat much.

She had an eating disorder(according to her book).
That eating disorder from periods of her playing career was binge eating (eating too much), not anorexia (eating too little, if at all) or bulimia (eating and making yourself throw up afterwards).

I thought she indicated she had an eating disorder, and I'm sure that wasn't helped by getting stabbed on court. It's one thing to shake off a first round loss at a GS, it's another to be stabbed in the middle of a match.

The fact that she goes onto a tennis court again is admirable.

I fully agree.

Binge eating is an eating disorder. She'd go through crisps, chocolates and stuff, and hide it from her family and tennis coach. Whenever she made a vow to stop, it wouldn't last long. She finally got over this in 2003 when her foot injury forced a long absence from tennis, and without realising it, she had stopped binge eating during the long hours she had spent at home without any tennis, and the weight dropped off.

If you listen closely, you hear someone (maybe more than one person) asking her if she's feeling ok. Seems like maybe she's feeling sick or weak (or maybe just under the weather)...and asking her if she would like to continue.

Every time I watch videos of Hingis like this, i wonder when we are going to see a female player with the complete game and touch of Hingis again..

Seles looks very weak.. :|

I think it's more her baggy clothes making her look very skinny than anything else. Hantuchova whose still very active on tour (and just won the Aegon tourney) is also quite thin and always has been.

I think after her career, Seles also did a Dancing with the Stars or some event like that so shed all that weight to look good on TV.

I wonder if she was just ill on that day - that's why the other players kept asking her if she's OK. If it was something worse surely she would not have accepted the invite to play?

She was not even bothering to hit her forehand with 2 hands!
