==1R Bob's pick: Fernandez vs. (17) Dechy==
Bob: It's starting to look like Fernandez won't make the Top 25 before Roland Garros kills her ranking -- but her chances here aren't bad. And Dechy wasn't expecting such a tough opening match.
Clarisa Fernandez (ARG) vs. Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
2002-08-12 Montreal Hardcourt R32 Clarisa Fernandez (ARG) 6-3 4-6 6-4
Clarisa Fernandez (ARG) leads 1:0
Clarisa still has 3 weeks to go to make TOP 25 for the 24 seeds,
and she is already 5-3 on clay now, with 2 losses coming against TOP 10
now she is facing Natalie, the defending QF-list,
however, Clarisa has shown she is much capable on clay
by making French Open SF, and beating Natalie on surface other than clay
Will Clarisa show her capability on clay, or will Natalie
show why she made TOP 20 by winning the match?
