The 2000 Chase Championships final provided what was probably the best women’s match of the year.
It was the 14th meeting between Martina Hingis and Monica Seles with the head to head 11 – 2 in Martina’s favour.
Monica was a 3 time winner of the year ending championships with Martina having won it just the once.
Both players were serving well from the start and the first 5 games were close but all went with serve. The next three games went comfortable with serve to take it to 4-4.
The ninth game saw Martina take a 40 love lead and then, with a combination of a few loose shots and a couple of great ones from Monica, she lost the game.
At 5-4 Monica was now serving for the set. At 30 all Martina made a simple forehand error which gave Monica set point. Martina saved the point with a wrong-footing forehand winner on the 10th stroke of the rally. A few points later she had broke back with some deep hitting forcing the errors from Monica’s racket.
Martina held serve comfortably to love with a couple of excellent forehand winners leaving Monica to serve to try to stay in the set.
