good win for monica, the schiavone loss was a blip and she has just proved she is a contender for the oz, i for one am glad she is not playing sydney, as that ruined her chances last year (doubles expecially) hopefully next week she will rest and she is a contender for the title.
this is a very good win for monica she was tested and showed that she can hang in on the long point without fitness being a problem. Kim is a good player and monica beat her. I guess this now stops the argument from a while back that monica could not beat Kim
I was worried after her loss to Schiavone earlier in the week. I had heard such good things from Jelena, saying she was in "the best form ever." A win over Clijsters, who is no slouch at all, proves that Monica is ready to take Australia by storm. I think that she can go all the way to the semi's if the draw is good and those hard, flat groundies have that "zip" that won her so many slams.
