As we all know, Monica Seles has a terrible head-2-head record against Martina Hingis. 14-4. But I discovered one strange statistic:

All four of Monica's victories are in semifinals.

Here are the records:

In finals, Martina leads Monica 7-0
:eek:

In quarterfinals, Martina leads Monica 3-0
:eek:

But in semifinals they are even 4-4.:)

I'm not saying Monica will therefore win tonight, because obviously Martina has won just as many semfinals, but I thought it was a weird and interesting fact. Any explanations? Has Monica been too tired for the finals? Is Martina less focussed in a semifinal?

Very interesting! You give me a ray of hope for the match tonight! :)

Now if only we could e-mail Monica and tell HER this bit of info ...

Also, the last 2 times Monica beat Hingis were in Cali.
The fact that they're playing at night also helps Monica's serve.
No sun to worry about. :D

Take it to her Monica!!
