AO R2: Monica Niculescu def. Tsvetana Pironkova 6-4 6-1

Pironkova had no clue what to do, except ballbash.

Monica
Very well done

With Fran's marathon match, who knows

Monica Just knew Pironkova was going to get picked off early in the tournament, hasn't strung together back to back wins anywhere since Wimbledon.

Should be interesting against Schiavone who doesn't look physically at 100% right now

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Monica just tangled Pironkova up, she had no answers. Great performance from Monica, she did a lot of running out there and was even fighting an injury in the first set but never gave in.

Good luck against Franny.

Schiavone was not looking well today, so perhaps there's a big chance for Monica to go further in the next mach past Schiavone. Go Monica!

Really?Ballbashed?She acted like a pusher most of the time.
Tsveti has such bizzare tactics.That is why she never succeeds against pushers.

I guess she's a bit like Amanmuradova - self-teaching and thus no strategy against defenders.
But you know what is really funny?Niculescu getting the 1st set with 1 winner.
Or leading 4-0 in the first set, Tsveti had 6 winners, Niculescu 0.

that's the complete stats:


Tsvetana's serve was much worse than the stats shows and she never really took advantage of Niculescu's main Achiles heel - she was injured in the wrist and had difficulties with performing a forehand (and serve as well).Niculescu lost her nerves lots of times during the match, but Pironkova give her wings back (as well as backed Pironkova at 4-0 when doing 2 consecutive double faults and 4 more unforced errors - her first UE in the whole match!!).

Good luck against Schiavone - it's pity she knows good how to outpush pushers.

So she has only made it past the 2r ONE time in her entire career at a major, and that just so happened to be a SF at Wimbledon. I really don't understand how people can not call that a fluke? IMO it is in every sense of the word.

TT Singles Current Ranking: #3 (CH Ranking: #1)
Titles(10): Singapore YEC 2015 Eastbourne 2015, Dubai 2015, Linz 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Wimbledon 2014, Marrakech 2014, Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011
TT Doubles Current Ranking: #30 (CH Ranking: #8)
Titles(8): Zhuhai 2015, Stuttgart 2015, Sofia TOC 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Bucharest 2014, Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt)

It's the 2nd major since then.She might eventually become THE FLUKE, but it's rather soon.

But if it is that important for you - yes, she a fluke!She's a bloody fluky fluke!The flukies fluke of all the flukes!Happy?

I'm actually laughing at your response right now, so I guess yes I am happy. Thank you for that.
