Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well, Ormaechea played just as bad as she did yesterday when she only managed to take 2 games from Monica. Her only merit today is that she tricked Monica into playing her kind of tennis. Pretty sure if the rain hadn't started yesterday Monica would have won comfortably in straight sets.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Once the MP in that second set was gone, so was the match. Usually getting to R2 in your 6th try would be a good thing, but this was a big chance for her that I'm not sure she'll get again in Paris. Oh well, bring on the hard courts -and Bucharest Open .

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It was a bad match-up to begin with against a dirt lover. Obviously yesterday Moni would have won easily, but as luck has it Ormaechea got to take that break, regroup and make her adjustments for Moni's game. I would have been really surprised if Moni would have taken the second set... and after the lost MP, we all know she always fades away

This thing annoys me most.
Today Ormaechea cut her UE and attacked mostly when she had a clear opportunity. Also some high bouncing balls on Monica's FH and draw errors from her.
Pity that good ranking points, money and a match vs Sharapova are all gone.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

After that fall yesterday, Niculescu complained about the conditions and wanted to call the supervisor.

At 1-0 , Ormaechea complained (more because she felt she couldn't win) and the supervisor came at 2-0 when Niculescu was something like .... "now I'm in the lead but ....oh well... I wanted to stop playing a few minutes ago.... so I guess it's ok to stop" (wasn't too convinced anymore though)

.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Ormaechea was making all that drama, throwing her racket around and all, not because of the court condition but because it was clear she would lose. She's not dumb obviously, it was the right thing to do for her and it worked...
