Monica leads 4-2

They've never played on clay, which is their both best surface...



This should be a good one!

Monica played soooo well. If she plays like that, then she can definately close the door on Henin in 2 tough sets.

Henin also played well, but against a lesser quality opponent, and she was broken.

This should be a great match!

I say Monica 7-5 7-6(5)

I think that Davenport-Schnyder will be a closer match than this.

Henin in straights..

The last two matches have been VERY close.

Justine:
Pros
-has been playing more recently
-clay truly is her surface

Cons
-may be getting tired having won last week
-if she gets up a lot, memories of last year may comeback

Monica
Pros
-she plays well on all surfaces, but clay is probably easier on her body
-must be feeling good after beating Dechy

Cons
-hasn't been healthy lately
-has lost the last 2 to Justine

My Prediction:
Justine def. Monica in 2 close sets 7-5 6-4

Order of Play - Friday 18th April 2003

Stadium Court - 11.00am
1. Henin-Hardenne vs Seles
2. n/b 1pm Schnyder vs Davenport
3. Hantuchova or Stevenson vs Dementieva
5. N/B 7.00pm Raymond vs Capriati
6. Ruano Pascual/Suarez vs Callens/Navratilova

So, does this mean ESPN won't show it.

yikes!!! why o why???
i think coverage starts at 1, so unless it goes superlong, we might not get to see it, which is a shame. however, they've been starting really late in this tournament, and theres always the possible florida rain delay...

Where did you find that schedule? It isn't posted on the website yet.

I would like for Seles to win, just to add spice to the WTA Tour.

I really want a Dementieva vs Seles SF (Monica was one of Elena's idols) with a Jen vs Davenport SF in the other.

I've put my money on Monica in two, dunno why, but I think she can take Henin on :)

i have a feeling this will be a score reminiscent of the henin/rubin in miami. i really think seles will win in two sets. it might be a little tighter in terms of the set scores, but for some reason i seem to know when henin is not going to play well, and judging from the fact that monica really choked in dubai i don't really think that match counts in terms of who is going to win, based on ability, although of course it could have pyschological implications

this could be the match of the tournament. i was thinking if henin and schnyder both made the final then we would be in for a treat.

On the wtatour website. They always have the schedule done quickly. The tournament website sucks.

I like both players but Monica needs the win more. Tough Match but I like to believe Monica can toughen it out.

I would like to see Monica win!! :)

But... I'll pick Justine as the winner, she has the most natural and effective game on clay... ;)

Monica needs the win, it would really help her rank and her confidence so I hope Monica wins and gets her season on track. I don't think the match in Dubai will affect Monica at all she is a seasoned and very expererienced campaigner.

I fell Justine will win but Hoping it will be Monica :)

I would like for Monica to win, but Justine will beat her in two.

6/3 6/3 Justine. Justine is too fast for Monica around the court. She will run Seles around.

If Monica wins I won't be surprised though, I just think it's going to be Justine.

The match of the tournament? Well it should be if they play like they did in Dubai!!! I hope Monica wins but becuase of injury I think it will be Justine in 2.
