Why 'should' she have won 1998? She was outplayed in the final. And 'moonballing'? Have you seen this match? I don't think ASV moonballed more than 5 times in over 2 hours. There is a difference between moonballing and running down a shot from Monica and somehow throwing up a defensive lob that gets Monica back behind the baseline.alfajeffster said:I thought she should have won in 1998 as well. She played so well to get there, but then had no stamina left for the moonballing Barcelona Backboard in the third set.
Wasnt this one of the first big matches to include a "strategic" toilet break?.....ASV at the beginning of the third?MirjanaLfan said:Monica played great all tournament but Arantxa was very, very stubborn in that final and wore her down. I was 100% behind Monica that day but ASV deserved her '98 RG title. She was down and out against Serena and came back to win that one in the last 16.
