Seles falls to Garbin in Indian Wells

Monica Seles became the biggest name to fall so far at Tennis Masters Series Indian Wells. The nine-time Grand Slam champion was defeated 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-4 by Tathiana Garbin.

Garbin, who hadn’t won a match this year before defeating Olga Barabanschikova in round one here, had too much firepower for a below par Seles.

“I think it was a combination of her playing really well and obviously I wasn’t playing what I usually play,” said a disappointed Seles afterwards.
