Ain't It Funny

Last spring an injured Monica Seles lost to Garbin and de los Rios and there was very much talk by people on this messageboard that she should retire (yawn....). Since that de los Rios match:

Titles: 3
Wins: 42
Losses: 8
Wins v. Top 10: 8
Losses to non Top 10: 1
2002 Champs Race: #3
Australian Semifinalist

Ain't it funny that nobody says the 'r' word and Seles in the same sentence anymore?

Seles has still the game to make some noise and spoil some victories..... to win a GS again will be a harder task though.....

Yes I have. Like the one where she rolled Jelena and Justine in the same day.

Wasn't that in Canada?

I thought Serena won that tournament?

Ummm, I thought it was Jen vs Serena in the final?

But, in all honesty, I think Monica is one of the top 5 players on Tour right now.

Oops, my bad again. That was the Semifinal. Not a single break of serve by either player until late in the 2nd set. Serena won by a tiebreak, and one break of serve.

Hard to believe she had to face Jelena in the round of 16.

That semi final was the highest quality of tennis I saw that year.

Shame about the result though .
