(12) Lisa Raymond (USA) vs. (3) Jennifer Capriati (USA) 2-4
1993-06-21 Wimbledon Grass R16 Jennifer Capriati (USA) 4-6 6-3 8-6
1996-10-28 Chicago Indoor Carpet R32 Jennifer Capriati (USA) 7-5 7-6(1)
1999-11-01 Quebec Indoor Hardcourt QF Jennifer Capriati (USA) 6-4 6-2
2000-06-12 Birmingham Grass QF Lisa Raymond (USA) 6-2 4-6 7-5
2001-01-08 Sydney Hardcourt R16 Lisa Raymond (USA) 2-6 6-3 7-5
2001-02-19 Oklahoma City Indoor Hardcourt QF Jennifer Capriati (USA) 6-4 3-6 6- 4

this is in fact their 1st match up in 2 years,
and last 3 matches have all gone to 3 sets,

ROAD TO QF
Lisa:
R32 Julia Vakulenko (UKR) W 6-1 3-6 6-1
R16 (5) Jelena Dokic (YUG) W 6-3 7-6 6-2
JenC:
R32 Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian (SUI) W 6-4 7-6(5)
R16 (15) Paola Suarez (ARG) W 2-6 6-2 7-5

JenC took out the best clay courter outside TOP 20,
Paola on clay can be ranked in the TOP 10,
so her win over Paola is more impressive than
Lisa's win over sturggling Jelena,
on their 1st meeting on clay,
will Jen prevail easily, or will Lisa put up a fight?

Jenn has two clay slams? I thought she only had one FO title.

Jenny in 2 sets. Clay is not Lisa's surface, and Jen plays well on the clay (she has a slam on the surface).

I disagree that Jen is playing poorly. She had a bit of rust in her 1st match against a tough opponent after illness lay-off; and in her 2nd match she beat the best clay court player in this tourny besides Henin. She's found her form on clay and I think will handle Lisa in 2 routine sets.
