View Full Version : Monica Seles - World #4 Despite What Some Think About Her

Jun 8th, 2002, 06:46 PM
Congrats Monica!! She is ranked #4 on the WTA Rankings...and #4 on the Champiosns Race standing. Despite what a lot of others say - she's having a great year! She has a Grand Slam SF, a Grand Slam QF, and a tournament title. Despite what some may say: Seles is having a great year. A year that many other players would love to be able to define their career by.

There, I'm done now. I just wanted to say something nice and positive about my Moni.

I'm happy for her, I wasn't a fan initially cos she used to beat Arantxa way too much for my liking.

But these two ladies share a great friendship and Arantxa even stated that apart from her, she would love to see Seles win the French.

Well done Monica, one of greatest players of all time. It would be great if she won a big title soon.

Monica deserves many kudos for what she has been able to overcome.

Considering that she's in her 13th or 14th year on the tour and rank no.4 in the world is absolutely an increidible accomplishment.

Props to Monica and her fans from a Williams fan.

One Love :D

A real champion, Monica at #4 and being on the tour for 14 years. :D :D :D

Agreed. Been a Monica fan since '88 and it's good to see her mixing it up there again. And with a great Wimbledon who's to say that #4 place won't improve. Jenny C's gotta watch out ( though I'm a big Capriaiti fan too .)

Actually she has 2 titles this year;)

Congrats Monica

Not #4, an EASY #4. She is in no danger of dropping at Wimbledon.

Maybe with a good wimbledon for her and a bad one for Jenny she could get to #3?

Anyway well done Monica

Congratulations Monica! :D

The best part is that she actually doesn't have a huge number of points to defend for the rest of the year. She might lose some over the summer (due to her two beatings of Hingis coming off), but once she gets to the fall, she should do well. She does have all those points to defend at the lower-tier events, but since she has an incentive to play in the big-tier events...leading up to the Chase in L.A...the odds are that she'll gain points rather than lose!
