Marion Bartoli is the new Monica Seles!!!

Her strokes,her intensity-her pace all remineds of me of the great Monica Seles. She does after all models her game after Seles.


And you know what? Seles' game is exactly the kind Venus likes. She hits the ball flat which is something the Venus Williams game really likes!!!

Venus dominated Monica in her day and for the match tommorrow-expect the same!!!

No, Seles is in her own class and one of the best ever ..Remember monica was only 16 when she won Roland Garros 1 time!!!Monica is a legend and has dominatet the wta tour for years...You cannot compare the 2 so..

Monica Seles ,the greatest ever Nr.1 Kim Clijsters is back Caroline Wozniacki

Monica wasn't the same after the attack. And Venus was at her peak when she dominated Monica.

Re: Marion Bartoli is the new Monica Seles!!!

It is true, Venus really owned Monica back in the day, and as Marion is simply a lesser Seles, this final should be over quickly.

Venus plays well against flat-hitters who don't move particularly well, look at what she did to Sharapova. Still I hope Marion can make a match out of it.

Marion and Monica aren't the same person.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: Marion Bartoli is the new Monica Seles!!!

FINALLY somebody agrees with me. Bartoli reminds me SO MUCH of Monica Seles...VERY similar games..she just needs a little more Power..because..baby..Monica Seles had power out of this world...I will go to the grave saying that Monica Seles was the hardest hitter in womens tennis. But yes...Bartolia IS the new monica...well...once she get a few slams under her belt. Hopefully not this one though..cuz I want Venus to win lol

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Re: Marion Bartoli is the new Monica Seles!!!

1.Venus dominated the after-stabbing Monica, who didn;t come anywhere near justifying the pre-stabbed Monica. Monica won 8 Slams before the stabbing, one after.
2.Okay, both do hit double handed off both sides, but Monica moved better, and hit about ten times as hard. Her serve was also more powerful.

Re: Marion Bartoli is the new Monica Seles!!!

She is the new Monica, no need the argument here. Even a blind can recognize her game. And for those claiming "No, the difference is that Monica had many slam titles" I'd ask to put peak Monica in present time to see if she would be capable of winning so much slams, if any. The game changed alot.
