Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

it was a funny match...Caro struggles to generate power from Monica's shots, so she can't hit her out, but Monica can't hit through Caro, so their rallies go on forever with great variations...I mean, Monica made Caro play so many slices, even off her FH

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I agree that the bad reputation of this particular match-up is unjustified. It's obviously nothing for lovers of classic indoor tennis with flat out winner shots, but both of them really must be sure to execute perfectly to hit winners against each other which makes up for some great rallies.

It would be even more fun when Monica wouldn't crap her pants at so many volleys, so that the match result wouldn't be NID to begin with.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Good luck! Although her second half of the season was a joke, I hope she can defend her semifinal points here.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Looks as if Monica has found another Safarova.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

What just happened here? After the first set I left for a cigarette break and she's now 0-2 in only a couple of minutes

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Kichenok was able to keep the ball inside the lines for a couple of minutes.

Monica herself is playing mediocre.

That dropshot . And then she follows it up with a moonball UE, just for good measure.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

That Kichenok chick might have the worst ROS I've seen this year - no accuracy, just slapping it.

Begu vs. Kichenok would be a feast right now.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

6-1 6-3 in nearly 2 hours



Expecting a similar shitfest against Parmentier, but her draw is too good to not take advantage.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

From 4-0 to 4-3 with injured Parmentier

Monica, I'll go out for dinner, but when I come back I wanna read you won this mess!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

After going from 4-0 to 4-4, Monica finally understands that she should slice to pauline's backhand side, instead of her forehand.
Clever girl.

Dead at her hitting the ceiling twice already.
