True.
The good part is she played an entire match.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She's still IN and she has to grab any points she can get now to be honest.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

(1)Monica Niculescu (ROU) v Karin Knapp (ITA)
Eva Birnerova (CZE) v Claire Feuerstein (FRA)
(wc)Vlada Ekshibarova (UZB) v (wc)Sabina Sharipova (UZB)
Q v (5)Alexandra Cadantu (ROU)

Top seed Knapp couldn't beat MEC in a 10k so she should take this ! R2 doesn't seem too difficult either. Haide

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lost in 3 sets. Utter garbage match when Monica once again lost her serve and her fovus.

Completely dominated the first set, not a single BP for Knapp, but gave it away in fashion. Saved a gazillion of BPs in the final set, got broken to 4-5, rebreak to 5-5, saving another BP back to GP, DF, broken.

Her 3 set stats are devastating. She usually was able to bullshit her way through matches like this one, now she is the one who just can't hold it together.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lost to Johansson 5-7 2-6

Problem is that Mathilde served 11 DFs and still nearly won half of the points on the 2nd serve.

She should really handle fast and go back to the ITF, there is no sense dradding it through like that.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Morita, Knapp and Johansson. She couldn't have dreamt of a softer comeback, yet she only managed to win a set in those three matches. It's worrying imo. I hope she didn't come back too soon, a broken hand seems like a serious injury.
