Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Cepelova will most likely lose to Cetkovska who is rocking that slice as well, I think.

Anyway, Monica vs. Petra sounds like fun.
Peer has nothing to trouble Monica these days, but I still expect a 3 set mugathon for this one.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lets not consider an easy win if she meets Cepelova again.

Probably the short time between the matches will make her understand what she did wrong to lose in such a manner . Still think that Cepelova has a nice game overall if she`s on.

Simona Halep

I didn`t want to be her fan, I just ... couldn't resist

Always remember you are unique. Just like everyone else

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I also believe that Cetkovska could easily trouble Cepelova tomorrow. All I sad was Monica "could" bump into Jana once again in less than a week But first let's see how she does against Shahar. Maybe her Top 20 days are gone, but she can still can produce some surprises every now and then.

WTA Rome, Q-R32:

(16)Monica Niculescu (ROU) d. Shahar Peer (ISR) 63 60

And she'll have to beat Cetkovska tomorrow for a spot on the main draw in Rome. Hai Moni!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

A great opportunity missed

I just hope she won't lose the match because of that SP wasted 15 minutes ago.

I can't be bothered to look up her last 3 set macthes, but I can't remember when she actually won a match after taking the 1st set and lost the 2nd

You're right. But of recent recollection we do have the matches against Sloane, CSN, Makarova and Errani where she led by a set and sometimes a break up in the second and still lost in the end

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Rome, Q-Q:

Petra Cetkovska (CZE) d. (16)Monica Niculescu (ROU) 46 75 61

What a difference a point makes

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Also a leitmotif already for Monica to completely fall apart in the third. So far (in 2014):

vs. Cetkovska 64 57 16
vs. Stephens 62 36 26
vs. Makarova 75 67(3) 36
vs. Suarez Navarro 64 06 14 Ret.
vs. Errani 62 57 16
vs. Cabeza Candela 63 67(3) 46

Thight second set, different story in the third

Monica Niculescu had match point vs Cetkovska, but broke a string during it, and has crumbled since. The drama is high.
