These girls took it to Lindsay and really prevented her from getting the points she needed to get a 1-8 seeding at Oz. martina was rooting monica on from the stands and could not believe what she was seeing. It also means martina will hang on to number 10 for a little longer until next year when she has TONS of points to defend.
But this loss today could really affect Lindsay mentally and also will ensure that she has a much tougher draw at Oz. Not a lindsay fan but I do feel sort of sorry for her cuz it's shocking that a player like her with so many weapon is really really struggling so many times to close out matches.
BUT CONGRATS MONICA!!!! One of the best fighters ever (which makes me feel even better about all the match points Martina saved against her in Tokyo this year and how she fought Monica off at the Chase 2000 finals. Of course Monica has had her great wins against Martina too and they are great friends.
) I think Monica really loves to fight off power players on big points cuz they hit the ball in her power zone and she redirects it well.
