Please everyone, RELAX.
First of all, the reason why Monica fans started those "Monica should not retire thread" after the Wimbledon loss is BECAUSE many of you started "Monica SHOULD retire threads" or "Is it time for Monica to retire" threads. So it was a reply.
Second of all, it IS unfair to put Lindsay at no.2 because first of all if indeed she has the right to her protected ranking, then they should have seeded her at no.1 (the ranking that she had before), however they did it subjectvly at the expense of Monica. And also there's the fact that when Monica, Mary and others cameback from long injuries, they had to work hard without any special seedings (ex: Pierce wasn't seeded at all in her comeback. Monica was seeded behind Halard after her half year break (I think it was between end of 1999 and the first part of 2000). So we have the right to say that it's not fair that they choose to put Lindsay ahead of Monica but decide not to put her before Venus which they should in case they are following the "protected ranking" system.
As for the stabbing, whenever someone throws Steffi's 22 slams in our face, we Monica fans have the RIGHT to say that her records are inflated because of the stabbing that had that purpose. The stabbing is part of tennis history and we would all be IDIOTS to ignore it. We would even be criminals to ignore it because we would be saying to Parche "you're wish has come true".
