Back-To-Back Wins: Seles Demonstrates There’s Nothing To It

By Compiled From Wire Services

Nearly 17 hours after winning her first tournament match in almost 2-1/2 years, Monica Seles came right back Wednesday for a 6-2, 6-2 wipeout of Nathalie Tauziat in Toronto at the Canadian Open.

Seles ran Tauziat from line to line, using just 56 minutes to finish the match.

Still, Seles found fault with her performance. “I played very well from the backcourt, but my serve and volley game was not as good as it was at home.”

Also, third-seeded Arantxa Sanchez Vicario ousted Patricia Hy-Boulais 6-4, 6-3.

In another seeded match, sixth-seeded Gabriela Sabatini breezed past Lea Ghirardi-Rubbi of France 6-1, 6-2.

At New Haven, Conn., Andre Agassi continued his dominance on hard courts, overcoming a feisty Fernando Meligeni 6-4, 7-5 in the second round of the Volvo International. In an earlier match, defending Volvo champion Boris Becker beat the midday heat and Rodolphe Gilbert 6-4, 6-4 in his first match of this year’s tournament.
