    If it wasn’t for that terrible stabbing incident in Hamburg, Monica could still be playing today! What a Shame! She is Still my favorite female tennis player of all time!!

    The one thing Capriati did better than Seles, atleast in later years, was she moved alot better. Other than that Seles had it in every other department I think.

    @Monicasthebest the funny thing is I felt Seles well past her prime was even as good or better than Capriati in 2001-2002 when Capriati won 3 slams. In Australia 01 Seles lost a big lead vs Jen, she had to miss the 02 FO that Jen won, and the 02 Australian Seles ran into on fire Hingis while Jen ran into crappy choking Hingis. And I felt Venus, Davenport, even younger Serena (game wise) were all much better than Capriati around then. Amazing she won 3 out of 5 slams then somehow.

    Seles Ruled Capriati, in every department, her Shots were better and she was a great champ win or loose something Capriati never learn’t….. i’d like to see this match in full if anyone has it

    I know, they were always entertaining to the max πŸ™‚ wish this match could be posted in 2 parts..

  • By Monicasthebest, July 30, 2010 @ 6:21 pm


    Monica was always the better player out of her and Capriati, her record over her carrier speaks for itself, god i miss Seles πŸ™‚

    MONICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!! I like your Grunt!!!!

  • By goodfellacr, July 30, 2010 @ 7:14 pm

    @heninwarrior I totally agree with you! Monica was always the best player! Capriati had 3 slams out of luck!

  • By heninwarrior, July 30, 2010 @ 7:52 pm

    Good to see Seles destroying the overhyped Capriati. It was annoying to hear Patrick McEnroe pick Capriati to win saying she was fitter, moved better, hit harder, basically claiming she did everything better than Seles. Yeah that is why Seles had won 9 slams and Capriati 0 at that point (she did eventually get 3 but the luckiest 3 slam winner ever probably).

    monica seles (despite her problems post 1994) is a war machine!

  • By xistencia, July 30, 2010 @ 8:46 pm

    te extraΓ±o monica seles….

    Definitely wouldn’t call it pure in any sense. Oh, and I don’t see how what I said is misogynistic, maybe you should look up a word before you use it.

  • By koolaidnhemlock, July 30, 2010 @ 9:53 pm

    its guttural and pure and you’re a misogynist.

  • By RaleighNC306, July 30, 2010 @ 10:49 pm

    It was after this match that Capriati broke down and asked the media to stop asking her why she was a drug addict and a thief. It worked.

  • By rafz89, July 30, 2010 @ 11:40 pm

    i miss all the Capriati/Seles matches… they always played so good against each other

  • By BOOMER751, July 31, 2010 @ 12:28 am

    I was never a big fan of Seles when I started watching tennis around 2000, but oh god she was just pure awesome!! Great champion

  • By juju1305, July 31, 2010 @ 1:12 am

    ok, sorry i misunderstood that πŸ™‚

  • By DreamObscene, July 31, 2010 @ 1:32 am

    33-1 = After winning the first set, not matches in general. The only loss she faced after winning the 1st set was to Graf at the French that year.

  • By juju1305, July 31, 2010 @ 1:36 am

    where did you get that from. It’s wrong. Seles had lost multiple matches in 1999, including against Hingis AO, Lucic wimbledon. She had 11 losses prior to the Us open that year.

  • By ShadeXH, July 31, 2010 @ 1:42 am

    Only thing I DON’T miss about Seles is her grunt. Disgusting.

  • By DreamObscene, July 31, 2010 @ 2:34 am

    The stat said Monica had a 33-1 record so far that year after winning the first set. That one loss came to Graf at the French Open, where she lost 67, 63, 64. She would lose to Serena Williams-the eventual champ-in the next round by a score of 46, 63, 62, making the stat 33-2 πŸ˜‰
