Monica on break points:

She MUST take advantage of her chances...The only time Monica ever beats a top player is when she takes advantage of chances(i.e.--DAVENPORT!!)

Yep! 7-5, Venus. The first three games of the 2nd set will tell me whether Monica is toast or not.

Some of you guys are being pretty rough on Monica, its good news she is making the match close, win or lose,
you shouldn't say negative things about Monica, she always trys her best, when she loses in straight sets or 3 sets, Monica gives the match everything she has on that day.

get the serve % up to 60.
Let rip on the first few returns of each game....esp if a second serve is on the menu.
Keep the match close
Keep the errors at a reasonable level....throw in the winners when the opportunity is there and let V self destruct

Monica is being very aggressive, which is the major difference from how she usually plays Venus. She did the same at Aussie Open and it worked.

Lets hope it doesnt work tonight :D

BTW - Monica looks like she's down about fifteen pounds from the US Open. And this is the first time in years I've seen her sharp angle game against a top power player. She's hitting angles only MUCH faster players can hit, because they can get outside those shots. Monica's doing it without running as far.

I'm not debating which country or whatver either. If an event is held in LA, the WTA need to get off their arses and do some promotional work. I was just pointing out that in Melbourne this wouldn't have been needed

Congratulations to all Venus fans. Too bad that Monica didn't convert on all those break points, but good match for her anyways. Now keep up your fitness Monica and lets see you do well in AO.

Great tournament Monica!!! You cameback from injury and haven't played in a while, but you beat Davenport and competed very closely with Venus. You will have a great year in 2003!!! :bounce:

I am proud though. Can someone give a brief match report? Please

I hate it when my favs play against each other but at least it's not a GS. Sounds like Monica's foot is doing ok, just get fitter during the offseason and be ready for the AUSOPEN.
Good jOB VEE, now reduce your errors and D.F. Good luck Vee against Kim

oggie

Lets hope that the foot injury heals and that we hear no more of it in 2003.

Lets just be happy that Monica has dedicated herself to fitness and determination. So what, she lost, yes she had oppurtunities but venus hit a lot of winners when down break points. Monica doesn't have that much more time on the tour so each match she plays is just another memory lasting time she fought. Lets enjoy every match whether win or lose because she is a true champion who has cemented herself into the top 10 and still can beat the best.

Monica did some things right tonight. She won just about every point where she approached the net, as she has tended to lately. But double faulting nearly every 4th second serve is not a good thing. Obviously, she would like to have converted more break points, but who know how many of those went to Aces/Unreturnables.

Hardiansf
Nov 9th, 2002, 05:02 AM
Great job from both player.
Well done Vee, and now... be the champion!!!
Good luck for Monica in 2003!

yeah I wish someone can write up a small paragraph of match report for us

1) Did Monica choke those break point, or Venus just play superb.
2) Was there any nce rallies?
3) How is Monica movement?
4) How is the crowd? still subdue? or better?
