It's pointless to deny that an injury affected Monica in this match.
it also effected her when she lost to Koukaklova at the Aus Open 03
When Serena lost today
When Venus lost to Monica at AO 02
When Lindsay lost to Kuzzie at the US 04
All to varying extents of course
But who cares? They lost. That's what goes down in history. It only irks me when people say that "so and so wasn't good enough" without any caveat as if that match is an indicator of who is the better player as a rule. Well they weren't good enough ON THEY DAY because of the injury, but next time they play the story could be much different if both are healthy.
