Re: WWW Luxembourg Final: V. Williams vs Niculescu

Who will win? I really don't have a clue. There are a lot of intangibles in this one and predicting a winner isn't easy. That the two have never played each other makes this match all the more intriguing and unpredictable. The fact that I'm a huge Niculescu fan and hence not without bias doesn't help me either in trying to figure out who the likely winner will be.

I do however think it will be pretty close. I expect a good competitive final that will provide excellent entertainment to the paying audience as well. And I expect both players to give it their best effort and give a good account of themselves both during and after the match.

Definately looking forward to it.

Re: WWW Luxembourg Final: V. Williams vs Niculescu

Venus would be my favourite in 2 pretty much anywhere else in the world right about now.

BUT

Monica plays well here, has exactly the kind of annoying game to turn Vee into a UE machine, will be facing a massively tired Venus you gotta expect, and Venus seems to have jarred up her back again. Even despite all those things it could still go 3 sets, but as much as i want her to i just don't think Venus will have enough left to get it done tommorow.

Her chance will be if she returns brilliantly. She will be able to swat at some returns but she'll have to be consistently accurate and brilliant for that plan to work.

Monica in 2 i'm afraid 6-2, 7-5

Probably Niculescu. But if Venus plays even half-way well she should and will win.

I haven't watched any of Venus's matches in Luxembourg but she should win this.
Come on, V!

Re: WWW Luxembourg Final: V. Williams vs Niculescu

Monica will win, but it will be a more closer contest (closer than her previous wins)

She will not destroy Venus like she destroyed Dani, Lucie & Jule

Re: WWW Luxembourg Final: V. Williams vs Niculescu

Venus for tennis' sake

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Donít squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend
