Seles Faces Hingis in Showdown

OAKLAND, California -- Precocious Martina Hingis arranged her first on-court meeting with former teen queen Monica Seles by beating Brenda Schultz McCarthy to reach the finals of the Bank of the West Classic.


The third-seeded Swiss teenager beat fifth seed Schultz-McCarthy 7-6, (7-5), 6-3 to set up a match against Seles, a 6-3, 6-3 winner over Romanian Irina Spirlea in Saturday's earlier semifinal.


Seles, 22, had an easier time Saturday, setting the tone by winning the first two games at love. She capped the first set by breaking Spirlea at love again.


In the second set, Seles stormed out to a 3-0 and never faced a break point on her way to victory.


"She served well and hit almost everything," said Spirlea, ranked 15th in the world. "When she won eight points in a row, I was thinking, 'Oh my God!'"

Sweden's Thomas Enqvist moved into the semifinals with a three-set victory over compatriot Thomas Johansson at the Stockholm Open on Saturday.


Enqvist had a tough battle to beat Johansson 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.








The 22-year-old Swede, the third seed, will meet American Todd Martin, with the winner also booking the reserve place for the ATP World Championship later this month.
