E parerea ta. Eu o pastrez pe a mea.

Ti`am scris replica fiindca ai vorbit de Alex, cunoscandu`i conditia fizica si accidentarea care o deranja vizibil. Acum ce sa-ti spun. Chiar si asa , daca lua primul game din setul 2, castiga meciul , dar s`a "inecat" ( asa spui tu ) . Nu pot pica de acord.



Si da , consider mingea de meci ca fiind un choke ca pe urma sa pierzi meciul , decat ceea ce`mi spui tu acolo . Cum e vorba romanului , te inecasi ca tiganu' la mal , mai avea o minge si o facusi de oaie

Dar cum ti`am zis , tu ai parerea ta , eu pe a mea.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Through to R2 in doubles with Caroline Garcia after Cibulkova/Lucic-Baroni withdrew at 4-3 in the first set. Rematch with Black/Mirza from New Haven semis up next. I'd be fine with a repeat win .

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

First good news of the day...
Very though one with Black/Mirza but they can both use some wins right now. Caro is slumping even harder...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well they lost... easily

Couldn't watch the match, but I just saw the first four games and they played awful! It's a mystery how they beat Mirza and Black just last week

They were going only for poor Monica and she did what she could but wasn't her best day / not even close . Service game wasn't quite there also and she didn't have that much confidence in her net game. And coordination between those 2.....

But IDK why they were going only for Monica because Garcia was making more UE's if we would compare percentages ,in terms or balls played.



Pretty much described in this photo :

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

New York Times article on Monica Niculescu

With Power Ruling the Game, Monica Niculescu’s Slicing Forehand Stands Out at the U.S. Open
By BEN ROTHENBERG

As flat power and topspin increasingly dominate tennis, one woman dares to be different. Very different.

Great quote also by Halep: “Her slice is just a special thing and amazing, and she has talent, I think, to do this. It’s not easy. I tried, to be honest, in the practices, but it’s not easy. She’s special, and she’s fighting a lot. She’s a great, great player, and for sure she can do better now.”
