On current form I'm inclinded to agree. It's always a big advantage getting into the main draw with a couple of qualie wins and LDL has a game that I think matches up very well against Monica on a clay court.

Yeah, I would expect lot of long rallies but I think Monica's groundies are more likely to break down during long points than are LDL's. On top of that Monica has been slumping now for a couple of months.

So...I think LDL but I'm hoping for Monica.

Pretty sure Monica will win.

I have no idea who will [a]win[/s]move to the next round but what I do know is that the people in the stands will be terrified for life and probably quit watching/playing tennis forever after witnessing this sacrilege .

Yes, it is. And it will take another couple of years of my life expectation to follow it on scoreboard which I don't want, but still do knowing myself.

I hope Monica can win this one. The surface is pretty fast, if this was slow clay she wouldn't stand a chance.
