Hey I don't get tangled in people's private lives.

The match starts out Seles on top, but Anke has a bunch of break chances to even. Monica closes them out, and hits cruise control. I just remember being so nervous. It was her 2nd slam final since being back, and I wanted her to win so badly (considering she was so close 95 US). Once she won that first set, it was vintage Seles. She moved Anke side to side and nailed winner after winner. It was a nice testament that her level hadn't fallen off too much after 27 months off the tour.

Plus, any Seles slam win in the final is amazing to watch!

Australian Open was the first time that I watched Monica play (the first match was against Majoli), so that it has special place for me.

Definately! This was a good match even though it didn't go to 3 sets. There were long rallies and both players played great tennis, not alot of errors. Monica had to hit winners to win. Great match!
