Strange statistic: Monica-Martina rivalry

As we all know, Monica Seles has a terrible head-2-head record against Martina Hingis. 14-4. But I discovered one strange statistic:

All four of Monica's victories are in semifinals.

Here are the records:

In finals, Martina leads Monica 7-0

In quarterfinals, Martina leads Monica 3-0

But in semifinals they are even 4-4.

I'm not saying Monica will therefore win tonight, because obviously Martina has won just as many semfinals, but I thought it was a weird and interesting fact. Any explanations? Has Monica been too tired for the finals? Is Martina less focussed in a semifinal?

Also, the last 2 times Monica beat Hingis were in Cali.
The fact that they're playing at night also helps Monica's serve.
No sun to worry about.

Take it to her Monica!!
