Jan 30th, 2003, 12:03 PM
Should Monica have any problems?

I say Moni in 2, maybe 3

7-5 6-4

or 4-6 6-1 6-4

something around there

Jan 30th, 2003, 12:31 PM
Lina will lead, and then Seles will withdraw injured

Jan 30th, 2003, 12:39 PM
Nope, she'll win, probably in 2 sets..... I say

7-5 6-3

Jan 30th, 2003, 01:04 PM
Monica 7-5, 6-1 :)

Jan 30th, 2003, 01:39 PM
Ummm.. this is tough cause lina is playing great, but monica is better in my opionion, i love lina, and i love monica too. These are my two favorite players, so its really hard, but im going Monica ALL THE WAY. But since Seles is injured, lina might take a set

Jan 30th, 2003, 01:42 PM
I'd be surprised if Lina wins after 3 3-setters in a row in just 3 days

I hope Lina wins, but realistically it's Monica's

Jan 30th, 2003, 01:55 PM
I like both players also. I'll take a chance and say I think Lina can pull this off. She'll have a boost in her confidence from beating Elena B and with Monica's mobility being diminished I don't see why she can't exploit that.

Monica and Lina played each other in WTT a couple of years ago with a healthy Monica winning. However, Lina was nervous and once she settled down she started playing better. I so wish I could watch this match but I'll have to settle for wishes of good luck to both girls with just a bit more to Lina.

Lina in 3 sets :worship:

Jan 30th, 2003, 02:03 PM
Seles in 2; 4&2

Jan 30th, 2003, 02:05 PM
Lina's got nothing to lose plus she's gonna be tired after a marathon today as well as the two previous days.

Lina will need to start good :)
Go for it Lina :), just give her a good game :)

All depends on how well Monica moves and how tired Lina is.
Monica should win on paper but then again when is anything played on paper.

Still go Lina :) just do it baby :kiss: :kiss:

Jan 30th, 2003, 03:33 PM
I hope Lina ;)
But i think Monica in 3

Jan 30th, 2003, 03:40 PM
Monica will beat her even when playing with her right hand !

Jan 30th, 2003, 03:41 PM
Lina will win in 3 :)

Jan 30th, 2003, 03:45 PM
Go Monica!

Jan 30th, 2003, 04:52 PM
Lina wins in straight sets

Jan 30th, 2003, 04:54 PM
Monica in straights...

Jan 30th, 2003, 05:59 PM
If Lina isn't uptight she will push Monica. But this is the type of situation that Monica thrives on pulling through.

I don't see Lina winning unless Monica is still hampered by her injury and Lina is able to stay calm and move her around. But Lina can very easily make it close.

Jan 30th, 2003, 06:41 PM
Lina-Monica - 20%-80%. I.e. Monica will win 4 out of 5 such matches.

Jan 30th, 2003, 06:45 PM
what was the score in WTT??

If she was nervous in an exhibition then she'll be twice as nervous here

Jan 30th, 2003, 07:16 PM
If Seles was 100% OK, she will win easy, but now Lina maybe can win in 3 sets , ihope!

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:04 PM
Monica is just having a little pain, shes fine

Monica in two.

Go Monica!!:D:D

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:18 PM
Monica 6:2, 6:0

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:45 PM
i bet monica will win....she is just lacking some confidence....and her ankle is being worked on by her trainer and wta staff...she'll be fine...i just hope when she makes it to the finals...its dokic and not lindsay and monica is ready to fire on both cylinders....if she is feeling 100%, even lindsay better look out....i just dont like lindsay....esp when she is pitted against monica.....

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:45 PM
GOsh my two favorites.....BUt im pulling for Monica, against anyone else i would def go for LINA cause shes my #2 but MOnica is my #1 So im going Monica. If Monica isnt moving, and i keep reading reports that she was basically limping out there, then lina could take the match...... IT all depends on how well MONICA IS PLAYING and MOVING

Jan 30th, 2003, 09:55 PM
Hope MOnica wins in 2.

Jan 30th, 2003, 10:05 PM
According to reports, Monica just had some pain and was a bit restricted on the forehand side

But If Ai couldnt exploit it, I dont see how Kranoroutskaya could

EXCUSE ME?! Oh yeah, I forgot, Monica ALWAYS retires in a match at the first sign of pain. It's her nature. What was I thinking? :rolleyes:

Jan 30th, 2003, 11:12 PM
Monica easily.

Jan 30th, 2003, 11:28 PM
How is Lina's game?
Her weaknesses and streaths.

Jan 30th, 2003, 11:46 PM
i would like lina to. lina might get tired from her long matches but monica also has the ankle problem. if lina's serve is working today then she can really trouble monica and if someone like koukalova could exploit monica's injury then i'm pretty sure lina could but then again ai couldn't but i still think lina is more capable of doing so than ai.

She does so, earthcrystal. Even too recently for you to have possibly forgotten. Tokyo, October 2000, less than 2 and a half years ago? Surely you don't expect us to believe you've forgotten that already? And even though Monica was supposedly "injured" she was back playing as though nothing was wrong only 6 weeks later. :rolleyes:

Jan 30th, 2003, 11:59 PM
One match, in let me see 3 years, that is a lot of withdraws.

Was that REALLY worth getting upset over?
