Re: Monterrey QF: Monica Niculescu def. Timea Babos 7-5 6-2
Monica still not at her best, and way too many bps missed today but still a substantial improvement on her match against Wickmayer. There were a lot of good rallies today and I do like Timea. She has a good mix of shots. But Monica really knows how to break down a young player's game and she did that today pretty effectively.
Fun match overall even if it was NID.
Congrats to Monica, it's already been a good week, would love to see Monica now make it a great week. As for Timea, she is still young and still very raw. She will get better and I expect to see her back in the top 100 pretty quickly.
