The worst scenario from the ranking point of view is to be LL (very possible as she has nr 1 seed in Q) and lose in the first round of MD.
Ok. So at least Monica has picked up 55 points for next week, it could have been worse.

And yeah, Monica against clay court specialists on clay is always a dodgy proposition for Monica, unfortunately.

Hard defeat.
Not expected at all.

I only hope it's not Monica.
As I am a probabilities „fan” this made me curious.
A Romanian player in MD of a slam has 10/127 =7.87% „chances’ to draw a top 10 seed.
As we usually have 5 players the probability that at least 1 to have a top 10 as a R1 opponent is calculated by adding 7.87+7.87+7.87+7.87+7.87=39.35%
And when Edina Gallovits had also good enough ranking for MD, then of the 6 players the bad luck for at least one goes to 47.22. Scary isn’t it Almost half.
So of 4 slams of the year 2 most probably will meet this situation.
If it happens in 3 or all 4 slams of the year the draws are rigged.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Terrible loss as Tower Flower is

a) shockingly out of form
b) that kind of inexperienced ITF player with a hard hitting game she usually smokes

which leads us to c)

her game is as effective on clay as gardening in the Sahara.

Monica withdrew from doubles with a right shoulder injury

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Not again.

Luckily it's during clay season and I really don't think it's as serious as la Begu's, but still sucks.

Get well soon!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Interesting stat, Monica is 9-1 this year against players ranked lower than her. Her only loss coming against Torro-Flor.

w/l vs lower ranked players 2013 - main draws

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Wasn't Hampton ranked lower than her?

Still good stats, could have even been better.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Bartoli is out of Rome, so Monica is in the main draw
