It will have to go here, since others chose to drag down the thread their comments were posted in (not that their comments didn't drag just a bit as well).

monica is not the player of last year. her losses this year have been quite disappointing. she's just not the big threat anymore and will increasingly lose matches in this fashion. she's not gonna start dominating as time goes on. she's past her peak.

has monica got herself in shape properly in 96-98, she may have added a couple more great years to her career, but i think there are signs that she's winding down too, a bit like how ASV and Conchi started to go downhill around 99-01.

True, Monica doesn't use injuries as excuses, but I think tends to stay off the tour when she's carrying injuries, so I believe she is not injured. The photo show Monica with stitch/cramp. It was very hot by all accounts, and Monica is not the fittest player out there.

I think Seles fans expect too much of her and carry too much wishful thinking to enter into rational discussions of her matches nowadays. Even when she's injury-free, she's having more and more off-days like yesterday. Yes, there'll be some bright spells to come, but she is in the twilight of her career.

She was not injured, she was perfectly fine. She is just over the hill. BTW, Monica doesn't use injury as excuse, credit to her, but how come I heard she was not physically well at the French and Wimbledon? I mean if players really don't want to use sickness or injury as excuses, then simply don't mention it at all. Otherwise it's a little like ,well I just leave it there.
