Soooo frustrating seeing Cetkovska making the 3rd Round after Monica had 2 MPs in FQR against her.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Players that saved MPs early in the tournament usually end up making it very far (Li at AO, Sorana in Toronto last year etc.)

Monica, I'm pretty sure would have beaten Pironkova as well, but no way she would have defeated Kerber.

I think we will remember that tournament for some time from now on
All her matches were great and makes me think where did that player go ?!?!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Why isn't she on tomorrow's Rome schedule for Doubles !?

I hope she didn't withdrew also.

I don't think all second round doubles matches are on tomorrow. Didn't see Black/Mirza scheduled, either as an example.

eta: I see they played today. Dellacqua and Jans-Ignacik just won their first round, though, so maybe that's why their second round match with Niculescu/Zhang will be delayed by one day?

It's now revised . 3rd match on court 2 . it wouldn't have made any sense not to play tomorrow.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Moni didn't play today and had to withdraw from Rome doubles, probably because of Zhang....

WTA Rome, R2:
Casey Dellacqua / Klaudia Jans-Ignacik def. Monica Niculescu / Shuai Zhang w/o



i was disappointed when i first saw she randomly partnered with this Zhang instead of reuniting the fed cup dream team or even calling up Raluca, but figured she needed better ranking. this stinks...

Yes. Because of Zhang . "shoulder injury"

It wasn't random because she knew from about 2 weeks ago so they talked.


Begu was scheduled to play Prague ITF, so no way she would've played only doubles in Rome. And with Olaru, she partnered only 2 times , a long while ago. *they would have made it with their ranking.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I'm genuinely curious how many games she can take against Nara.

12

unless stars align again for Nara. I don't know what was happening in Rio, but it's hard to ever see her repeat such a week on clay, yet alone winning an event.
