With a 6-3, 6-4 victory over France’s Anne-Gaelle Sidot on Saturday night, Monica Seles put her self in position to shoot for a fifth straight du Maurier Open title. Monica can not seem to lose north of the 49th parallel, as she ran her win streak to 24 matches without a loss in Canada. The left-handed Sidot, ranked No. 49 in the world, plays a similar game to Seles.
The pair traded fierce baseline groundstrokes, but Seles was able to get the twenty-year-old off her game enough to capture a break in each set. Each player was forced to play a tough three-set match earlier on in the day, and perhaps Seles’ experience was the difference. Seles will meet Martina Hingis in Sunday’s final at 2 p.m. ET.
