Good question, it all depends in the state they were playing in, if both were playing with good form its a tough one, though I'd give the edge to Monica, the better attacker and those angles, very few knew or know how to counter them. One of the best returners of serve ever so its a tough one.

That's definitely a toughie. Since Monica has been playing exhibitions lately, we can see that she is in good shape. I haven't seen Jen since last year and she hasn't played in forever, so it's impossible to tell with her. Both are question marks so I'll be delightfully biased and go with Monica.

Good question. I think that they would be equal right now, in the current state that poor Jen is in. I think that if Jen was playing the way that she played before the injuries, then this would be a no-brainer. But now, I think I would still go with Jen because Monica hasn't had a competitive match in a while.

Seles. In my opinion the only thing that Jennifer has over Monica is her movement and that is obviously a much bigger part of how successful Jennifer is than it has anything to do with Monica's game.

Ditto! Even a "slow" Seles could beat the likes of an upcoming star in Clijsters back in '01 and '02, shes just such an attacker and she never backs away from her plan, attack attack at any given opportunity.

I bet my house (I only have a small one anyway) that Capariati would win. I think that Cappy now is probably closer to her best than Seles.

The real question is, who would win a match between Betsy Nagelsen and John Evert...

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Really I can name at least two players who knew how to counter them and they have a combined h2h over her of 25-10

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

exhibitions? Then why isn't she playing tour events....now she's a side show?
