Monica owns Patty and beat Lena 3 and 2 last year. I expect a quick straight setter, probably 6-4 6-3

there is absolutely no comparison between eleni lasy year and this year. She has improved tremendously and though I give the edge to Seles, Eleni is quite capable of sending the match into a tough 3-setter. If the match does go into 3 sets, I expect Eleni to win. Come on Lena!!! Grab those needed points...:cool:

Monica in 2 or 3, but I doubt it will go 3.

Lena has lost the first set in her 3 previous rounds.... So=
Monica should take this in straight sets........
Daniilidou is in the Spirlea, Mauresmo, Schiavone mold and this type of player can give Monica trouble. They are able to loop her around and then throw in a hard drive to end the point.

I have tremendous respect for Eleni, and I've enjoyed seeing her progress. If she were not playing Monica, I would be rooting for her. However, she is playing Monica, and while her game has improved tremendously, I don't think she's in Monica's league at this point.
That said, I wish Eleni all the best in the future. :)

I also think Seles will win, but I hope for a better score, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 for Eleni.
