Australian 2002

I have a question for everyone on this board about a perticular match. Monica Seles vs. Venus Williams.

Do you really think that Monica out played Venus. Or is there really people here that belive that Venus WAS injured and she wasn't 100%! This is how i have always seen it. And acutally when they asked monica about playing Venus at the 2002 French and about her confidence since she did beat her at the Australian, monica said this was going to be a different match b/c Venus is healthier. Moinca did play great, but really Venus was not Venus, she wasn't really runnin down balls playing like she normally does. So what do you think the real result is?

Venus maybe wasntexactly 100% but she was match-worthy and Monica played some great tennis.

Good enough to play - good enough to take a win - good enough to take a loss. It was not Venus' best match ever, but on that night at that time in that match, Monica Seles beat and outplayed Venus Williams.

The thing is Venus is generally going to have to be playing less than her best in order for someone to beat her... that's the sad reality. Other than her sister, she is just better than everyone else in the important departments. But really, it's a moot point because a win is a win and a loss is a loss.... however you win or lose doesn't matter cos it's chalked up as a win or a loss without any sort of qualification.
