~~R16 MATCHUP: Seles vs Dechy~~

6-Monica Seles (USA) vs. 11-Nathalie Dechy (FRA) 2-0
2000-02-21 Oklahoma City Indoor Hardcourt F Monica Seles (USA) 6-1 7-6(3)
2000-09-18 The Olympics Hardcourt R16 Monica Seles (USA) 6-3 6-2


last time they met, Monica was TOP 5 in the world and
Dechy was no where near Monica.......

but now time has changed,
Monica needs 3 sets to take care of Anca,
and she is hurting right now.......
Will the highest French player in Amelie Island win this
contest this time?

well, i think we should also take into consideration the fact that dechy had even more trouble than monica against Maria Vento-Kabchi, who is ranked almost 100 spots below barna. barna is a clay specialist, and monica beat her pretty decisively in the third. i think monica should win, but there is definitly no guarantee.

Nathalie might be from France, but she does not like clay. Why do people assume just because someone is european, she must like to play on clay? It's Nathalie's least favorite surface, and she only started playing well on it last year.

Because Monica is somewhat injured, I will say Monica probably wins in three sets. Neither played well in their last match but Nathalie has never taken a set off Monica and Monica is better on clay.

Hopefully Nathalie can prove me wrong

monica will take this oout in 2 sets i think. dechy has been playing well all year but it took her 3 sets to get through to this round and monica was probably rusty because she was playing her first match on clay for the year and she hadn't played for awhile and she was coming back from an injury. monica should have got rid of her rust and will take dechy out (although i've loved watching dechy's results this year).
