Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Should have played Baku, to be honest.

Losing to 3 BBBs back to back on fast courts, by the way. Can't even blame the draw for her uselessness.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lost in the first round in the doubles also (partnering Cibulkova 64 46 [8-10] against Goerges & Jurak)

It was supposed to be more realxed & easy with no points to defend until October

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well, if anything she is relaxing too much.

On court and without her brain, that is.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Washington, Main Draw:

(3)Makarova v Bouchard
Garcia v Tatishvili
(wc)Townsend v Niculescu
Q v (8)Keys

She just keeps drawing these young ball bashers.

Have you guys seen pics of Townsend?
No offence, but Monica should destroy her...

I even saw her playing in Charleston in April

Both her and Shelby Rogers are definitely overweight. Not only for tennis. Burdette had the same problem, but shaped up nicely in these last 6 months and looks like a real tennis player now. I dare to say that she's even attractive now

Fun aside, it's high time for Monica to start winning some matches and end that 5 match losing streak! Hai Monica!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

After watching her at Stanford there is not sure thing with her anymore. Townsend may very well beat her. She is a talented girl.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

As talented as Townsend may be (and I'm not saying she isn't, all I'm saying is that the only time I saw her playing in Charleston she only managed to take 3 games against Petkovic and she barely moved on clay), if Monica loses this one she might as well take a year off. Perhaps Townsend prefers the hard surface to clay, but even if she does, Monica should definitely win this. Hell, what am I saying, she should win this with one arm tied to her body!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Townsend is THE perfect match-up for Monica as for now.

It's like all the opponent's usual liabilities she is feeding on put into one player.

Yet, somehow she became a #1 junior

Definitely an interesting match to watch!
