Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She must have known that way before Sorana actually did withdraw.

Anyway, perfect R1 draw as she will now face an out of form Wickmayer in R1.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It's all turned out very nicely ...especially when one considers had Monica actually beaten Vania in qualifying she would have drawn Azarenka in the 1st round.

Vania had to beat Mladenovic first but yeah I guess facing Woz in R2 is miles better than facing Vika.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She could have actually bageled her, but being the generous queen she is (1/7 on BPs vs. 1/1) we are on serve at 4-4 now.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Tweets on the match :

- Drama! Caro complains about Niculescu making all kinds of random noises. Eva warns Nic that she'll have to call hindrance.

- Niculescu had break point and instead of hitting an overhead she hit a drop volley in the bottom of the net

+

1/10 on BPs vs. 2/2 in the 1st set

Broken from 40-15 at 4*-5 to lose the set in 1hour 15 minutes

Peak Monica.
