I just saw the match in Eurosport. I think that she was pretty solid today, it wasn't easy at all to play Miriam, who was hitting much harder than Monica. She served some good serves, aces. Solid match, but she still can improve her game. Sometimes, she seemed to be very careful with her foot, but i think it was more prevention than a pain. But it's obvious she'll be limited by this foot until the end of her career (it surely will be the main reason i believe)

I'm afraid you're right Kuti Kis&Monica. She's been being careful with her foot for the past year or so...I just hope she keeps her stamina up and perhaps she'll lose some weight, so that she keeps it off that fragile foot...

hopefully monica can get better and better with every match. she looks so happy in that picture... can u imagine how ecstatic she would be if she won this thing again? hopefully she gets a lot of people to come and see her play so she will have these kinds of fans at all her matches (seems like they will be lol). GO MONICA!

Great win today for sure! Monica needed this match to get back in the groove of things. Casanova was definately making us Seles fans sweat! But Monica turned it up for a 3 set win!
WAY TO GO MONICA!!!
I have some pics on my site for anyone interested! We also had live scoring today on our forum during the match. Come join us when Monica plays Nadia Petrova(RUS) in the 2nd rd.
