That said it is still winnable. Overall can't complain. Bring it on.
Very well said. Sara is a solid mover, and pretty comfortable at the net also. Makiri on the other hand, well if Monica's playing beautifully then the match wouldn't last more than about an hour.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

unless the scoreboard is screwed, which is quite a possibilty. But if it isn'y...Monica has not hit one un-forced error from 6-4 2-1

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well kind of a struggle All games went to deuce and she had troubles closing it out.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Great she won that match. Let's hope for the best in the second round but it will be very hard.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

And she is playing doubles with Sorana. They are playing against Ditty and Gullickson in the first round

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Last year at US Open everybody was already on court in fact of Monica. Sorana was telling the umpire that she didn't know where Monica was. 10 minutes later, Monica arrived very relaxing

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I saw the last set in this match, she started off really well hitting some great forcing shots and awesome winners. Then she just left mentally and Errani wasn't going to miss much. To many errors from Monica and crappy approach shots. Her slice forehand wasn't troubling Sara that much just because she wasn't getting much depth on it. She was also sliding a lot which made me cringe because I though she was going to snap an ankle.

Still...she had the game in her hand but couldn't play well enough today. Errani just to consistent and to fast around the court.

Who knew Italian fans could be so FUCKING!!! annoying as well. They were bagging Monica the whole match LITERALLY...disgusting.

Italian fans

Monica Expected result. Errani's consistentness is very tough to crack.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Thanks for the report Keadz

I can't stand Errani Oh well Monica, this was still a good tourney. She's played in 2 R64 matches now at slams so next time I think she will be more prepared for the occasion.
