:hearts: that pic of her fans!

I was following the score on line as best as I could while at work.

Set 1: Myriam broke Monica in the very first game. They each held serve the rest of the set.

Set 2: Monica broke Myriam early, then again in the last game.

Set 3: Monica broke Myriam early, then lost her own serve at 4-2, then broke again to go up 5-3 and served out the match.

There is a pic of her on the website.

Here is a brief wire story:

Monica Seles needed three sets to get by 46th-ranked Myriam Casanova on Tuesday in the first round of the US$1.3 million Italian Open.

The 10th-seeded Seles appeared stunned by the Swiss player's powerful strokes in the first set, but then showed her experience and court savy to pull out a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory.

Seles, who won this key clay-court tuneup for the French Open in 1990 and 2000, received constant encouragement from the Foro Italico crowd.

After her comeback was complete, a group of fans clad in U.S. flags presented the nationalized American with a dozen red roses.

Casanova, who was making her Rome debut, produced a series of aces and winners in the first set. But as the match wore on, Seles began to win longer rallies.

Sounds like a good match! Anyone know why the doubles never took place? Hope nothing bad.

Her doubles is scheduled for late in the day. At least, I think it is. It's only 7:00 PM right now in Rome.

It appeared on the scoreboard for several minutes, and then disappeared. Maybe its just delayed. My fear is Monica withdrew because her foot is hurting.

Their scoreboard isn't working for me. It's still stuck at the precise moment she defeated Casanova. It doesn't even say "Williams" anywhere, no matter how much I re-open or refresh it.

Maybe a rain delay?
