Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She should destroy Hlavackova if she is fit, ball basher with raw technique, easy peasy.

But that wrist injury bothers me a lot.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This is odd.

I know that Hlavackova is coming close to a perfect match-up, but she was just pulling out after one game against Makarova with a wrist injury and wrist injuries are quite serious usually.

Either it was just really precautional or she may have withdrawn because she thought she would still be in time to sign in for Toronto?

I like that result, though. Keep going.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Very relieved that Monica won without any indications that there is still a problem with the wrist. That's a big relief. Yeah, Monica should beat Vania pretty easily considering both match up issues and form.

Hopefully Monica gets a good spot in the main draw too. After a rather barren summer, Monica needs some "W"s and the US hardcourts are good place to get them.

With Ula Radwanska losing yesterday & Keys pulling out, Monica has a pretty good chance for the main draw even if she loses today (hope that won't be the case, of course), as a lucky loser.

King breaking Monica's serve just when she needed. Now I kinda wish someone withdraws from the MD...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Pretty sure she knew that someone is going to pull out. Otherwise that second set was far too quick taking into account that someone like King can't overpower her from the get go.

With her wrist problems it's better for her not too overpress.

Thus said, if no one is going to pull out, I will of course take back what I just said.
