Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I simply can't with these girls.

However, this basically explains why she sucked so much lately. She (as all Romanian players) is usually getting injured when being in form, so this should hardly come as a surprise.

I hope it's not that serious.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She likely would have lost anyway but yes, I hope she is OK.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I suppose we will find out how serious it is by whether Monica plays Toronto or not.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Maybe it was just precautionary.

I agree that she would have likely lost anyway as Makarova was playing some fine tennis this week.

Hopefully not too bad. Still, no clue why she didn't give a walk over. Probably just happened during the warm up, a mess.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I remember watching Dokic vs Dulko once. I did not see anything during the warmups, everything was just fine. Then the game started, and it goes like 15-0, 30-0, 40-0 Dulko followed by a sudden Dokic withdrawal.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Wrist injury according to other sources.

Pretty sure her forehand slice plays a role here, but she is really unlucky with injuries on arm and hand.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

That could also be because she simply passed the deadline one has to be out in order to compete for the next quali event.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

In this case she should have pulled out of Toronto-Q and be replaced by an alternate, right?

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Cincinnati, Q-Draw:

(3)Niculescu v Hlavackova
(wc)King v (20)Ormaechea

She can do it, but it won't be easy!
