Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

One of the easier R1 draws, but it's not that she could win matches against Top 50 players on clay.

Paszek doesn't count.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Bad for Monica, very good for my TT.


Monica's game is as ineffective on the dirt as Agatha's. Both players' shots just die out there, but not in a positive way. Even a girl as bad a mover as Robson gets enough time to kill those puffballs midway. It's actually pretty funny that a great match-up can turn into a complete different one on another surface despite court homogenization.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I never know what to think about Peng. I have seen her play a few times and she was kinda impressive. I know it would be a tough one. At least there was a win in doubles.

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

(1)Bartoli v Giorgi
Soler-Espinosa v Bouchard
Tatishvili v (wc)Garcia
Erakovic v (5)Niculescu

Please, I want a clash between my two queens in the QF It would be such a great display of clay court tennis

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Cakewalk draw to the QF.

That match against Bartoli should really happen here.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I think Garcia can beat her if she somehow gets her head together

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Let's see first if she gets there as she lost the first set to Erakovic in a tiebreak after leading 4-2 earlier in the set...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Second round against Tatishvili, normally a straight sets win, but it's Monica on clay so you'll never know...

What a tough score but I am glad that she won a match on clay.
She needs some confidence before RG.

LE Just noticed she plays doubles also, together with O. Puchkova.
Good friends after Florianopolis.
