That was Monica Seles at a tournament in Hamburg, Germany on April 30, 1993. A fan ran to the court during a break between games in a match she was playing and stabbed her between the shoulder blades with a boring knife. The fan was captured and arrested but found to be mentally incompetent. He was sentenced to two years probation. While Seles' injuries were not serious, she did not return to competitive tennis for over two years.
