Did anyone watch Monica vs Amelie?

And if so, can you tell me at what point it became apparent Amelie was injured?

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Didn't see it. From John Roberts (who's in Dubai covering the tournament for The Independent):

Seles's semi-final against Mauresmo, a repeat of their match here at the same stage last year which the Frenchwoman won in straight sets, promised to develop into a memorable contest in spite of the blustery, humid and overcast conditions. Both players hit spectacular winners, but Mauresmo's serve let her down at critical moments.

Her movements became laboured in the second set, and she took an injury time-out when leading 2-1. Seles was forced to save a break point in the fourth game, which ended with Mauresmo netting a forehand return and conceding the match after 63 minutes.

Sounds like it had the makings of a great match...Too bad...Also, see Hingis-Seles's report in GM!

It could have been a great match because Monica was serving and moving well during the match.

If Monica continues serving like this then she'll have a good chance tonight.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
