Live from Abu Dhabi Connect the World takes you on a journey across continents, investigating the stories that are changing our world.
When it comes to the great sporting comebacks of 2009 it would be hard to ignore that of female tennis player Kim Clijsters, who this week reached the semis of the U.S. Open - despite spending two years out of the game to start a family.

There are few better qualified people to answer such questions than a fellow pro – and Connect The World will be privileged to feature Monica Seles, one of women's tennis greatest stars on Wednesday.
During her career Seles won nine Grand Slam titles and was the youngest ever champion at the French Open in 1990 at the age of 16, the first of three triumphs at that tournament. She also took the Australian Open four times and the U.S Open twice.
Only Wimbledon, where she lost in the final in 1992 to Steffi Graf, eluded her. But at the height of her career in 1993 Seles was stabbed in the back by a fan of Graf's and temporarily forced out of the game. While she enjoyed some success on her return, she never quite recovered the form which so dominated major tennis tournaments during the early 1990s.
What does the return of Clijsters means for women's tennis? How does the women's game compare to that of the men's circuit when it comes to the major tournaments? What's it like to do battle at Wimbledon and Flushing Meadow, Roland Garros and Melbourne Park?
Send your questions to Monica Seles below and we will feature as many as possible on Wednesday's show.
