Monica would need the match of her life to beat Venus though, if Venus should be her opponent.
Yes. Venus is an extremely tough opponent for Monica should she face her in the final. A player like Kristina, or Safarova or Goerges, Monica can completely baffle. But Venus has been and this sport a long time and she was pretty smart even when she was young. These days Venus is extremely bright and she has the skills to cope with Monica in a way that most big hitters simply don't. So yeah, Venus would be very tough for Monica in the final.
Re: Florianopolis SF Niculescu destroys (7) Mladenovic 6-0 6-2
This put things in a more real perspective. Mladenovic beat in Paris a headcase like Georges and a totally passive unconcerned Petra who almost didn't blink in the whole match. After that, the usual with all the WTA "hypes": inconsistency a go-go; one dimensional senseless ball bashing; total inability to build up on the momentum. Nothing new.
Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
