Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica's match made me a new fan today

Where will Monica slice next?

Shes still in Roland Garros, managed to pick up her 10th doubles partner of the season

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

It looks like she's had some good results though.

Just checked the draw, her and Gallovits play Salerni/Sfar which should be winnable. Monica's game is probably even better to watch in doubles.

Her doubles matches aren't as entertaining in doubles, at least from what I've seen in videos. I guess you notice all those crazy shots alot more in singles than you would in doubles.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I'm just so happy that Monica did well and showed her stuff against perhaps (with Henin gone) the best claycourter in the world.

Monica really showed today how well her game can work on the main tour. What's more she is capable of bringing something complete different the game than any other player. She is to be treasured. And in time she will be, just as Santoro is treasure in the ATP.

Exactly. Considering Jankovic is so good on clay, think of the trouble Monica could have given Sharapova had she played her today. She completely neutralised a top 5 player's game today which is very difficult to do. I just hope she establishes herself on the main tour soon. Her style is very unique, which can only be good for the tour.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Tammy's fave surface is grass..i don't know how many times she's been to the 4R of Wimbledon before

Monica Hopefully she has a good doubles tournament and keeps trying..her game should be so good for grass.

The only way Tammy would have been able to beat Monica is to stand at the net and wait for the drop shots
