Niculescu too smart for this hopeless hope of WTA and her brainless tennis

Now beat Jankovic

Good fight from Bojana from 6-1 3-0 down, served for the second set twice only to waste her opportunities

Monica

Ana Ivanovic is now retired.

Re: Miami 1r: Monica Niculescu d. Bojana Jovanovski 61 76(2)

Both players have a rather weak serve, but some of Jovanovski's stats are cringeworthy to say the least:

1st serve points won: 13/40 (33%) for the match, 1/12 (8%) in the 1st set
Break points saved: 1/9
Break points won: 5/18 (1/11 in the 1st set )

The blackness that falls is coming to stay

Re: Miami 1r: Monica Niculescu d. Bojana Jovanovski 61 76(2)

The thing people might not be aware of is Monica what did to Bojana, returning serve today, breaking 8 out of 10 times, was simply a continuation of how she was playing at Indian Wells. In that event, in her 1st three matches there, she played 26 return games and broke 18 times. Even against Marion Bartoli, who was playing pretty fine tennis last week, Monica was able to break her in 4 of Marion's 1st 8 service games before Marion was able to turn the match in her favour.

As things stand after today's victory, in Monica's last 5 matches she has played 49 return games. In those 49 games she has broken an incredible 31 times. So while it is true Bojana does not have the best of serves, you will not find many matches at all where she only wins 33% of her service points and loses 80% of her service games.

As at least one other poster has quite rightly pointed out, Monica herself does not possess one of the world's best serves. Far from it. So for Monica to win matches comfortably she needs to be able to break serve a lot. And that is exactly what she is doing. Simply if you are player who finds it a bit awkward to hold serve, Monica Niculescu, in her present form, is not someone you would want as your next opponent.
