Seles' 3 Straight 3 Set Matches W/L - (AKA "THE THREE THEORY")

Should Monica & Martina go to a 3 set match, it will be only the 3rd time that Monica has played 3 matches in a row that have all gone 3 sets. She is 3-0 on the time in 01, and 2-1 the time in 98. She's never had to do 3-3setters in a row anywhere else since. And never has done it in a Slam

:

Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA March 30, 1998 Surface: Clay
R64 Bye
R32 Barbara Paulus (AUT) W 6-2 0-1 ret
R16 Natasha Zvereva (BLR) W 6-0 6-7(5) 6-2
QF Patty Schnyder (SUI) W 4-6 6-3 7-6(6)
SF Irina Spirlea (ROM) L 4-6 6-1 6-7(5)

*
Los Angeles, California, USA August 06, 2001 Surface: Hardcourt
R64 Bye
R32 Marissa Irvin (USA) W 6-3 6-2
R16 Sandrine Testud (FRA) W 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4
QF Serena Williams (USA) W 6-2 3-6 7-6(2)
SF Martina Hingis (SUI) W 6-3 1-6 6-4

F Lindsay Davenport (USA) L 3-6 5-7
*

This is probably a meaningless stat - but since I'm bored and had the time I thought I'd check it out.

Could good things come in 3s? Is 3 the magic number? Could this be Mon's 3rd US Open title? If it is, she would be ranked #3!

What a coincidence.
What a coincidence.
What a coincidence.

Funny how every match (but 1) has a 7-6 in it...and 3 times the 3rd set ended in a tiebreak.... Hmm...more 3 stuff.

JenJen is the #3 seed... does she have any relevance in the '3 Theory'

Hingis is on a 3 match win streak over Monica at the moment.

seles you are nervous for this match I guess?

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
