Terrible loss from Moni! She was nearly unable to hold serve...

But, still, nice win for Lara

As a Monica Niculescu fan I am disappointed but Lara is good, very good, and I am not surprised by this result at all. Looking at her progress up the rankings over the last few months I have a feeling this girl is going to have an excellent future, especially on the clay.

As for Monica, well it was her 1st clay match of the year, she was up against a player who has been winning loads of matches on clay in the last six months, albeit at a much lower level, and had qualified with good wins over Daniilidou and Bratchikova. To Monica's credit she kept fighting till the end but she was always chasing and she never caught up. Monica has plenty of time to work on her clay game over the next couple of weeks before her next singles match and I'm pretty confident she will be fine.

Well done to Lara, and it will be intriguing to see her progress this year. I'm looking forward to seeing her play.

Jeez how don't I recognise her name!? What could possibly have been happening during last year's RG for me to have overlooked this girl...?

Oh that's right! =P

Maybe one of the stats-freaks will help, Lara has won 11 $10K tournaments before even turning 19. Is that a record?

And it's not like she won those in random places, but all of them in Spain, where draws are tough. In fact, of these 11 tournament wins, Lara was seeded #1 or #2 in just one of them.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Larita

she looks like a mix of Lourdita (Dominguez-Lino) and Carlita (Suarez-Navarro) face-wise
