Monica Will Really Struggle On Clay

Since she always does:

1989: 10-1
1990: 22-0
1991: 19-2
1992: 19-1
1993: 2-0 *I refuse to count the stabbing as as a loss....*
1996: 5-1
1997: 13-4
1998: 15-4
1999: 13-3
2000: 17-2
2001: 0-1
2002: tbd


I've seen about 5 threads discussing how 'awful', 'slow', 'bad' she is on the dirt, and I guess looking at the numbers above I'd have to agree. Monica stinks on clay.....

A hard court player for sure, but Monica is strength training and looking to go to as many tourneys as possible. She could go to the quartes at least!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1990 - 1992 just 3 losses on clay ... can't imagine who 2 of those losses were to

I know that Monica can have a great clay court season this year .

Go for it Monica !!!

well she will stuggle on clay or whatever when she meets the Serena Williams of 2002.
And when she meets Venus, boy, VENUS WANTS REVENGE, clay, or whatever, don't matter.

Well, last time I looked Serena struggled against Monica so nothing is ever to be taken for granted.

As for Venus, she may want revenge but she's going to have to take it - Monica isn't just going to hand it over .

Especially on clay. Venus will have to literally tear the racket out of Monica's hands before she'll get her revenge easily.

I agree with seles, Monica does suck on clay and I don`t think she will reach the quarters of roland garros this year, she only did it 9 times out of 9 starts, that`s really, really bad

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

SO true Seles. Monica should just retire and accept that its clearly all over.

There is no way she can even hold a torch to the players of today.

Monica's clay record speaks for itself doesn't it! Her mental toughness, tenacity, penetrating groundstrokes and angles all contribute to her success on this surface. Also, lets not forget about her willingness to dictate the point, which i think we saw a lot of in the recent Capriati match-Monica had Jen on the run throughout the match. I would look for a different outcome in this matchup on clay!! Someone mentioned Amelie-some difficulties against her lately although on clay Monica defeated her in straight sets in Ital. finals '00 and R16 French '00. Current #2 in race to chase, very close to # 4 in official rankings, with no points to defend(except 1) thru Wimbledon-RG 2002-here comes Seles!
