Henin leads 3-2

Capriati has a losing record against all of them apart from Clijisters, but lost to her at Berlin. Does she have a chance. I really feel sorry for Capriati, since that awful start of the year that we should really disregard as she was not fully fit, she has played different top five players and lost to them all in three tight setter matches. Would be awesome if she could reverse that fortune and take the title. We have been waiting for 17months now...... But keep in mind, she has beaten them all at least twice.

Well seles may have defeated Jen 6-2 6-2 both times they competed on red clay, but look at the dates of those matches...1992, 1990. Therefore I would say that is not an important factor for this match.

I agree, I was just pointing out facts. I can't wait to see this match. I love Seles/Capriati matches!!!! :) :bouncey:

Is she happened to make it to the finals, after beating all those monster ladies (Seles, Momo, Rena), she will be totally worn out by then to beat Juju or Kim. She will be worn out by the time she faces Serena, and she will need a full force massive attack to get by Serena.

Honestly.... I don't think so. But I don't care because she is not my fav. I'd rather see Kim winning it or Justine.

i know Alex will struggle to get past a qualy...so i hope its Jen who gets to the semis to meet Rena

What do you think?! :rolleyes:

Monica at her usual half fitness level was pretty good, but that won't cut it these days. I don;t think Monica will be more than a slight test for Jen.

This is a tough draw for Jen. Although playing Stevenson on clay should not be hard for her. This is the type of draw Jen needs for RG. It's a tall order for Jen, but if she wants to have a chance at RG, she needs to get through this draw.

I hate to be down about the draw, but I think it's going to be tough for her to get past Monica after what happened today.

All those three set loses....it has to start bothering you after a while.

I think that if Jen means what she says, she still needs to work just a bit more on her fitness and on her serve she can win anything. The difference when Jen plays Serena i think is the serve, where Serena can get cheap points, unlike Jen. So, if Jen hasn't been playing at her best and can reguarly take top 5 players to three close set matches, it will be intresting if she goes up a gear at Roland Garros and if she plays them.

I agree.
Even with Monica being gone for awhile most of this year - I think Monica will be very tough to beat for Jenn. I am a Seles fan of course so I am biast. But never count Monica out - and she does seem to play very well against Capriati. - We shall see! Hopefully!

Stevenson on CLAY? You must be joking. Easy! :o

But yes, after that, this is a doozy of a draw! :eek:

This is bad luck for Jen..... Even if she can get past Monica and Amelie and through to the Semis, she will have nothing left physically against Serena!!! :o

Has Seles actually played on Red Clay this year, or is this her first event?

Alex wont be a threat, especially on clay :rolleyes:
I'd be surprised if she won one round.
Monica is just coming back from injury so she may not be at her best.
But yes the others are legitimate threats, but not until the QF.

JC should have no problem getting past Alex. Monica's fitness(physical and foot) are a hugh unknown, but I would tend to say the conditions definitely favor JC. Her really big test is Mauresmo, I think AM is the stronger of the two clay courters and has even been dominating JC on hard courts, her favorite. Edge to AM.

Chance
May 11th, 2003, 05:26 PM
I was reading Cappy's interviews and I don't recall her addressing her serve problem. If Jen doesn't admit she has a problem with it, how is she going to work on it?

Oh well good luck Jen..until you meet Monica ;)

May 11th, 2003, 06:40 PM
Sunset, she always says she is working on her serve, trying to adress the problem of double faulting as she wants to cut them down and stop giving away free points.

A slight test? LOL! If Monica had played a few matches last week and her foot was healthy right now she would be logical favourite. As it is, too many factors against her and I have to give Jen the edge. Sight unseen, I'll give Monica about a 1 in 3 chance of taking this match.

If Monica and Capriati get to the 3rd round
then I'd take Monica in 3 tough sets

Clay, Red Clay especially is her best surface

If she gets past Monica or whomever she plays in the 3rd round, I think Mauresmo will be the end of the road

I am going for Monica. I think she will beat Jen if she faces her this week. She hit her angles and she'll go for her shots. Imho Jen is too passive just tryin to get the ball back then suddenly she gets tired. Seles will beat Jen if they meet. Just a feeling.

When has Monica ever been a 'slight test' for anybody ?

JenCap has a tough draw but she's playing well and she's a true champion.

She can win this tournament.
