Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This sounds like a really good match-up for Monica.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Alison's not been playing well, so Monica should win in straights, really. One win would be an improvement from last year.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica's choking has cost her more than 350 Ranking points this year alone.

By the way, Cirstea is ranked #84 in the Live Rankings with a total of 405 points to put things into perspective.

Had GP respectively BP in the first 5 games of the first set,
led 3-1* 40-30
had a total of 7 BPs (triple BP to start the match)
against a player who is hardly winning matches and still fucks up. I can't.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Bad, bad match from Monica... after the first 4 or so games she had 1 UE, after that she basically made a mess of everything. Bad, bad match...

Not particularly, no...

The bright side... she can now enjoy and bask in the glory of playing in her home town and then ofc she gets to return to her beloved hardcourts

It also needs to be said that Alison was barely placing a ball in court according to Slam Tracker.

This looks like the classic 'Oh my God, my opponent doesn't hit every second ball into the net anymore, what should I do?' reaction Monica has pulled a couple of times in her career.

She has the impatient mindset of a BBB without having the weapons to finish points quickly herself. It's a combination that had and will cost her much success in her career.

That is a valid conclusion given that we can only judge by the slam tracker. Iirc at one point the UE stat was 1 Moni to 11 Van Uytvanck, but after only a few games it was almost tied Also the Net points won stat is uncharacteristically low. So yeah, she probably did panic Otherwise... hey, no MP's waisted this time... it's something
