GO Monica!!!

To the rest of the tour: Monica is 28 and is really only playing because she likes it. We all know she can't spend too much time training. Congratulations to everyone else on their mediocrity. What an exciting time for the sport. yawn.

evadafan - Don't forget that VENUS was also nursing a sore leg which is probably why Monica was able to sneak in that win at OZ.

Venus had won the previous round in like 12 minutes against Maleeva, she was playing top level tennis. Also during the match against Monica, Venus served great, had a lot of winners and ran down every ball. She even had a 00-40 in the final set but Monica was too strong that day.

Anyways great to see Monica playing top level tennis. She split her last 2 matches with each of the Williams! GO MONICA!

Monica won that match because for the first time since maybe 93 she didn't make any mistake on important points in set 2 and 3. that looked like the monica of old with the same determination and that's why she won!

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

Come on. I know that you saw VENUS play an earlir match in which she literally beat an opponet on one leg!

Her leg was not 100% because if that was not the case, Monica would have a couple of more wins on VENUS by now.

No excuses, it was a great win for Monica.
Maybe she will beat VENUS at the U.S. Open.
If VENUS has another injury, that is.

We also saw that Venus DIDN'T limp her way through the next few rounds afterwards, including the match against Monica! So I guess Monica did beat Venus fair and square...We could also say that Monica was injured when Venus beat her at the '99 Pilot Pen because Monica's foot had been bothering her the entire summer that year, but we aren't saying that, are we?

Oh, and we could also blame the three set loss in 2000 at the Acura Classic was because of Monica's blisters and forearm injury...
