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.

At the end of season, Seles had won 10 out of the 16 tournaments she entered (reaching the final of every tournament that she entered that year). During Wimbledon, Seles encountered difficulty because of her habit of grunting or shrieking loudly when hitting shots.

However, German authorities were quick to rule this out, describing her attacker as confused and possibly mentally disturbed.

Parche was charged following the incident, but was not jailed because he was found to be psychologically abnormal, and was instead sentenced to two years' probation and psychological treatment.

Her winning streak was stopped by Zina Garrison at Wimbledon in the quarterfinals, where Seles had a match point before Garrison eventually won 9-7 in the 3rd set.

Seles then won the Virginia Slims of Los Angeles title against Martina Navratilova and then defeated Navratilova again in winning the Oakland California tournament, in straight sets. 1991 was the first of two years in which Seles dominated the women's tour. She then successfully defended her French Open title, beating the former youngest-ever winner, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, in the final.

This was the last title that Seles won before the attack in Hamburg, Germany.

On April 30 during a quarterfinal match with Magdalena Maleeva in Hamburg in which Seles was leading, Günter Parche, an obsessed fan of Steffi Graf, ran from the middle of the crowd to the edge of the court during a break between games and stabbed Seles with a boning knife between her shoulder blades, to a depth of 1.5 cm (0.59 inches). Although her physical injuries took only a few weeks to heal, she did not return to competitive tennis for more than two years.

Initially, there was speculation that the attack might have been politically motivated because Seles was from Yugoslavia.
