Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

What a shocking and ridicolous loss against Cabeza.

4-2* 30-15
4*-3 30-0
4-4* 30-15
4*-5 30-0

Yes i saw the match, she had so many opportunities to end it but lost them all. I must admit Cabeza game was way batter than you`ll expect form a player ranked 114 and had to qualify for an MM tournament. But i guess this is the Qualifiers week, seeing what is happening in Sydney

Yes. I also think it was to a large extent a match up issue. Monica does often struggle with Spanairds who play in the classic Spanish manner of getting lots of balls back and a playing with discipline. And Estrella played a great match, credit to her. Yeah, it's bit of bummer of a result and obviously in a match as closely contested as this one was it wouldn't have taken much more for it to have shifted into a Monica victory. But it wasn't to be and that's life. I'm still pretty happy with Monica's form going into the AO.

Did not expect this

GL in the AO. A litte bit of luck not to draw Azarenka again would not hurt

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Niculescu - Peer . Easy AO R1.

Probably Lisicki for R2

.

Monica was always going to draw a seed in one of the 1st two rounds. Lisicki is one of the best seeds she could have drawn. Firstly Lisicki is quite a good match up for Monica and indeed Monica does lead their H2H. Secondly, Lisicki hasn't been well and she tends to recover pretty slowly when she suffers one her periodic illnesses. I see a good opportunity for Monica making the at least the 3rd round here.

The draw could have been much much worse. I'm quite happy with this.

Monica is actually 0-2 against Shahar, so I wouldn't brush off this match. At least it's winnable, unlike having met Azarenka in the first round last year.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I can see Peer troubling her for the very same reasons Cabeza did. In all honesty I'm more 'scared' of R1 than I am of her possible R2 where a ballbasher will await her.
