In early 1986, Seles and her brother Zoltán moved from Yugoslavia to the United States, and Seles enrolled at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, where she trained for two years and continued to practice until March 1990.

She famously won the 1990 French Open at the age of 16 and followed up with eight more Grand Slam titles over her illustrious career..

Golisano was a majority owner of the Sabres from 2003 to 2011, when he sold the team to Terry Pegula.

She played her last professional match at the 2003 French Open, but did not officially retire until February 2008.

Regarded by many in the sport as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Seles was named one of the "30 Legends of Women's Tennis: Past, Present and Future" by Time. In 1985, at the age of 11, she won the Junior Orange Bowl tournament in Miami, Florida, catching the attention of tennis coach Nick Bollettieri.

She became a naturalized American citizen in 1994 and also received Hungarian citizenship in June 2007.

In 1990, Seles became the youngest ever French Open champion at the age of 16.

She also won the 1990 year-end Virginia Slims Championships, defeating Gabriela Sabatini in five sets (in the first five-set women's match since 1901 US National Championships), becoming the youngest to ever win the Season-Ending Championships. She started out by winning the Australian Open in January, beating Jana Novotná in the final. Unable to play at Wimbledon, suffering from shin splints, Seles took a six-week break.

But she was back in time for the US Open, which she won by beating Martina Navratilova in the final, her third Grand Slam title of the year, to cement her position at the top of the world rankings. Seles successfully defended her titles at the Australian Open, the French Open, and the US Open.

Her quarterfinal opponent Nathalie Tauziat was the first to complain to the chair umpire about it.

During the third set of her semi-final match against Martina Navratilova, Navratilova also complained to the chair umpire about the grunting after Seles went up a break at 4-2.

She also won the year-end Virginia Slims Championships for the second consecutive time, defeating Navratilova in four sets. She also reached her first-ever final at Wimbledon, but lost to Graf.
