Q. Yesterday CBS showed the match. Did you watch it?
MONICA SELES: Yeah, I did watch it. Yeah, it was hard not to.

Q. Did you watch the whole thing?
MONICA SELES: Almost, back in my hotel, debating whether I should watch or not. One of the best matches I think in women's tennis. Fun to see Jennifer and I hit the ball. One of the first matches that the ball was hit hard. Now you look, it's even being hit harder. I'm curious, ten years from now, it's gonna be even harder. How far it's gonna go, it's exciting to see that.

Q. Did your stomach get knots as you were watching?
MONICA SELES: No, I could see some of my family members, hers. They were more nervous than we were. I think we're so young and we just wanted to crush every ball out there, and that's how we were playing. No matter 30-All, Love-40, we were going for our shots. It was great to see that.

I'm surprised too, since Monica said couple of times that she doesn't watch her old matches.

Also from the USOpen site:

On Monday during the rain delay, the 28-year-old Seles lay on her bed in her hotel room and watched a CBS replay of her extraordinary three-set win over Jennifer Capriati in the 1991 semis, when the teen puppies raised the bar for women's tennis in the hardest-hitting match ever seen at the time.

"I was very good, and I'm giving myself a hard time now," Seles laughed of the day when she was probably two steps faster than she is now. "Obviously things were very different. It made me reevaluate certain things in my game that I have to look back on after this tournament is over because I definitely did them better then than I do now."

she meant she doesn't pop in videos of her old matches. This is different. This was an 11 year old match being played on national TV!
