Monica Seles - World #4 Despite What Some Think About Her
Congrats Monica!! She is ranked #4 on the WTA Rankings...and #4 on the Champiosns Race standing. Despite what a lot of others say - she's having a great year! She has a Grand Slam SF, a Grand Slam QF, and a tournament title. Despite what some may say: Seles is having a great year. A year that many other players would love to be able to define their career by.
There, I'm done now. I just wanted to say something nice and positive about my Moni.
Agreed. Been a Monica fan since '88 and it's good to see her mixing it up there again. And with a great Wimbledon who's to say that #4 place won't improve. Jenny C's gotta watch out ( though I'm a big Capriaiti fan too .)
The best part is that she actually doesn't have a huge number of points to defend for the rest of the year. She might lose some over the summer (due to her two beatings of Hingis coming off), but once she gets to the fall, she should do well. She does have all those points to defend at the lower-tier events, but since she has an incentive to play in the big-tier events...leading up to the Chase in L.A...the odds are that she'll gain points rather than lose!
