Seems to be very little interest in this game now.


- No articles ever written

- Barely any comments/posts during the tournaments

- The least ever thread views

- Barely any players sending new points


Is it worth carrying on after French Open? :shrug: :o

(13) Seles def. Clijsters
6-0 7-5

Being #13 seed certainly wasn't bad luck for Seles as she wins her first Grand Slam title. She played great all week and showed no signs of nerves in the final and she jumps up to #9 in the new rankings. Clijsters misses out on a third Grand Slam title but seems to be back to her best, scoring an impressive win over #1 Venus in the opening round. She bounces all the way back up to #11.

Third Time Lucky For Seles
http://sports.espn.go.com/photo/2009/0709/ten_ap_mseles1_300.jpg

Monica Seles stuns tennis world by claiming first ever Tour Title...at Grand Slam level.

How Do you Feel after your win?
Well you know, i just cant believe that ive actually done it...Any moment know I feel as if Im going to wake up in my bed at home...Its just an amazing achievement for me.

You seemed to be one of the least known players a few years back on the tour, you know, not one of the players making consistent results?
Well, I had some time during the off season last year to get my game together and to work on my weaknesses.
I feel that my serve has definetley improved so much as well as my forehand wing.
I feel like Im hitting bigger angles and way harder than a few months ago.
Ive been in two previous finals a few weeks ago and I just got so down about both loses. So I upped my level in the important stages of this grand slam - and it payed off.

Anything to say about your opponent today, Monica?
ya well I just want to congratulate her on reaching the final..I had a real contest trying to win that second set. I hope we can meet in many more later stages of big events Kim.

Congratulations Monica on your big win.
