Martina and Monica made a good doubles team, too bad they both were exhausted

Oct 13th, 2002, 04:35 PM
They beat williams/williams the week before and beat Raymond/Stubbs here so they would have been a great team for the rest of the year!

Oct 13th, 2002, 04:42 PM
Monica really needs to play more doubles, she should play some more with AnnaK, they won a title a couple of years ago

Oct 13th, 2002, 05:19 PM
That pic is from Sydney

I have this match on tape and it is :eek: awesome :eek: monica/martina saved several match points, it was just an incredible and very competitive match. Also in the pic you posted, Monica shows incredible athletism! Wow, what a get!

You are so lucky, selesrules. I always wanted to see that match, but it wasn't shown here in Canada.

Oct 13th, 2002, 05:47 PM
wow, I would love to see that match. How many match points did they save?

Oct 13th, 2002, 06:20 PM
its strange to see Serena without blonde hair!

Oct 13th, 2002, 06:39 PM

i was talking about the match

and martina and monica pulled out of sydney in the SF's i believe

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:12 PM
It's been a while since I saw it, but I am pretty sure it was 4 match points saved. I think the score was 6-4, 3-6, 7-6.

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:14 PM
Well before that, Monica saved 6 match points to beat serena

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:16 PM
Well, the Serena match happened later that same year. The doubles match was in january 2001, the Seles/Serena match was in july or august. I wish I could see the Monica/Serena match but nobody seems to find it...

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:32 PM
there are a couple of sites online that have it

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:36 PM
I remember the first 3 matches Monica and Martina played together. They beat Williams/Williams, Raymond/Stubbs, and Davenport/Morariu. :eek:

Oct 13th, 2002, 07:58 PM
They make a good team

Oct 13th, 2002, 11:26 PM
Which website has the Seles/Serena match online?

I'm dying to see this match and Serena/Seles.

They should team up again :p

I saw the live match and it was so awesome!! :D I think they saved four match points!! They reached the semis at the Adidas International with won over the Williamses and Davenport/Morariu!! Martina pulled out of the semis due got blister. They faced Raymond/Stubbs in the first round of the Australian Open and they won the match!! They also reached the semis there and losing to the Williamses.

I think that they're doubles had alot to do with their losses at the Australian that year. Monica was up 4-2 in the second against JCap but lost :( and Hingis was hella tired after beating Serena AND Venus

Oct 14th, 2002, 03:47 AM
I don't think that playing doubles affected either player significantly. Monica was playing very defensively the whole tourament and just couldn't find her form. Martina was possibly a bit tired for the finals, but if she was, it was mostly due to that 8-6 final third set against Serena.

Oct 14th, 2002, 03:49 AM
They both said they were tired from playing all the doubles, and with Monica not exactly in the best shape it took its toll

Oct 14th, 2002, 01:36 PM
Sorry Justin - I meant that Sports Resources have the Seles/Hingis v Williams doubles match.

Oct 14th, 2002, 01:51 PM
I remember watching that match on tv. The commentator said "Three of the greatest ever female players all on the same court - and then theres Serena!" How things have changed ;)

They DID win Oz.

Hingis has wonderful muscle tone in her legs in that pic. I don't really notice that now. Maybe that's something that she's going to work on in her off season.
