Broken from 40-0 up to lose the set.

No words really.

AMG played very well from 0-40.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Still, things like that happen far too often.

How often do Romanian tennis players get broken when trying to stay in the set?

8/10 easily.

If you know that your second serve is gonna killed, then why still going for the first...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This surface is quite fast for WTA standards.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Is it me or Monica hit the ball harder than usual?

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Double break lead in the second set now.

4*-1

As I said, that surface is really fast for outdoor hard court these days.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

All right, but she hits flat balls with her bk, overpowering AMG. Unexpected, I say.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica is actually dictating the rallies when she can get her first serve in.

Problem is she had less than 50% in the 1st set.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This surface is really made for her. Flat bouncing and quite fast.

Playing really well now.

And you are right, she is really going for that backhand.
