Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

no reason at all she should be afraid of makarova

very winnable

rybarikova could potentially upset kerber then it would be a 50-50 semi

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

What a topsy turvy match that was....

Big relief that Monica came through it in the end. It obviously could have gone either way but the fact that Monica was able to play a young talent like Madison Keys as tough as that is really uplifting. We know Monica is great against youngsters but Keys might be the most talented youngster in the game so this is a nice win.

It doesn't get any easier now though. Katya Makarova will be a tough quarterfinal opponent. Still it is nice to see Monica back to her winning ways. Hopefully this will continue now for the rest of the year.

If Monica plays Magda I fancy Monica's chances a lot. Her game matches up really well against Magda. I've seen a couple of their matches and it is clear Monica has the edge in this matchup. I should add when these two play play each other the result is extremely entertaining. It is like a fireworks display of finesse tennis. More slices, volleying, dropshots and lobs than one would think possible to see in a single match. The match they played in the 1st round of Wimbledon some years ago remains one of the most enjoyable matches I've ever seen at Wimbledon.

I really hope these girls can make this semifinal happen.

Yeah, the likelihood is we will have a Makarova v Kerber semi. And I have to say I like both Katya and Angie a lot. But damn, a Monica v Magda semi would be so much cooler.

We just have to hope for the best. But for sure whoever comes through the top half, (please may it be Monica ) I will be rooting for them to win the tournament.

Choking like there's no tomorrow and still winning. She must have been the better player out there.
