Monica defeats Schett

In a match that lasted one hour and thirty-eight minutes, was spread over two days and played on two different courts. Monica Seles remained on track for her fifth consecutive du Maurier Open title. After rain interrupted play on Friday night with the score deadlocked at 1-1 in the first set, the pair resumed play on Saturday morning on Centre Court.

The two split the first two sets, before Monica turned up the heat on her ground strokes in the third. The defending champion cut back on her unforced errors in the final set, committing just four to the Austrian’s eleven. The sentimental crowd favourite, Seles has now won 23 straight matches in Canada.
