I posted this on another thread...but thought it was appropriate here too..
you know what I like a lot about Monica - is that she appreciates good tennis, whether she is producing it or someone else is, even her opponent. I have seen her many times applaud a good shot by her opponent - I can't think of any other to player that does that, can you? She has a lot of respect for the game - which is why she doesn't question calls and why she always has the same expression on her face, whether she is walloping an opponent or locked in a fierce battle. I always think she even feels a bit badly when she beats someone - especially if its a good fight. You can kind of see it in this picture at the beginning of this thread - she's respectful of the game that has been played and her opponent. no fist punching or looking into the crowd for her supporters. she beat venus and knows she beat a good champion and has the respect for the game to be a gracious winner.
Now that venus is out, i'll be rooting hard for seles.
