Seles into quarters in Amelia Island

The sixth-seeded Seles, seeing her first action in nearly two months, breezed past 11th-seeded Frenchwoman Nathalie Dechy 6-1, 6-2 to set up a quarterfinal clash with diminutive world No. 4 Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne.

The former world No. 1 Seles, who had been sidelined since February with a left foot injury, is a two-time winner of this event, having claimed back-to- back championships in 1999 and 2000.
