Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
It's like that.
She sometimes has no clue what to do with the ball. It's also why I have a problem using the word shot selection in her regard, because she doesn't think much, yes she can be pretty brainless as well.
I'd even go as far to say that she is pretty brainless for 90% of the matches she is playing during a year, when she is just sticking to junkball pushing after a while like the match against Knapp illustrated quite well. That's why she lost so many matches being a set up.
She has to remind herself consistently to take action whenever she has the slight chance to do so. She might make some more errors, but it's important for her to not let her opponent's get into rhythm and only using forehand slice is maybe unorthodox, but contradictional to her actual goal.
