Lower.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

So happy! A great victory for Monica, but gutted for Vera who seems to be far away from her best and injured. Tough weeks for her!

2 Romanians already in R3 and Sorana still to come, great week for the sport here.

Re: Doha Rnd 2: The 'Magician' Niculescu d. Zvonareva 7-5 3-2 Ret!

Well quite a few people did predict it. Obviously Vera wasn't 100% and I'm sure that must have contributed to the result. As the match sadly, and quite wrongly I'm my opinion, was not on centre court, despite Vera being the defending champion playing her 1st match and up against a very tough inform opponent, I can't say how much Vera's injury was a factor in the score, and I've no idea how the two played.

I would say, when you are not 100% the last thing in the world you want is to lose your 1st set in 75 minutes of very taxing difficult tennis. And when your opponent is Monica Niculescu who is all too happy to go 3+ hours I can imagine why Vera felt there was a lot of reason to go on.

I hope Vera gets better quickly, she's a nice girl and an attractive player when she is on top of her game.

As for Monica, pleased to see Moni did what she needed to do today and I'm looking forward to her next match, possibly against Flavia who has given Monica nightmares in the past. Given the form of both players, if Monica was ever going to have a competitive match against Flavia now would be the time.

Oh wait, the title was not suggesting her to retire?
