Monica and Yari, my two favourite players playing together.

I was so excited when this happened and they did damn good too, making the Semi Finals. I would never in a million years have never expected to see any video footage of this event, so all I can do is say thank you so so much Arina's_fan.

Hopefully this won't end up the last time these two girls play together. They could be a great team.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Looks like Monica has beaten Kasia Piter in the 1st match of the Romanian-Polish Fed Cup tie. The score seems to be 1-6 6-2 6-0. Slow start for Monica but once she got going she showed her true class.

Very important start for Romania. Hopefully they can keep it up.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Tough luck for Romania in the Hopman Cup

(8)Amelie Mauresmo v Sara Errani
Timea Bacsinszky v Monica Niculescu
Alisa Kleybanova v Tsvetana Pironkova
(4)Agnieszka Radwanska v Q

Would be Good if she won her first round and could play Amelia on a big court.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

1R should be easy.. Errani will be too tough in 2R.. so probably no big court.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Really pleased with this win.

The best thing is this gives Monica a good challenging but winable 2nd round match. I would love for Monica to get a shot at revenge against Errani. Errani is playing good and she is a tough match up for Monica but this surface should favour Monica a lot more than AO did. I think Monica has a chance against her indoors. And playing Mauresmo would be great too. Again this would be a good test for Monica and I think Monica is up to it.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica and Sorana just won their 1st round doubles match against Razzano and Bremond too. Nice win with the Romanians winning both tie breakers. Very winnable quarterfinal coming up as well.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica is having a good week so far

Semis of the doubles and of course she is still in the singles too . She clearly likes the surface in Paris. I think the poor start in Australia was more to do with the surface than her not playing well. Whatever happens from now, Monica has had a successful week as far as I'm concerned. A singles QF would be amazing but even if she doesn't get that, this has still been an ideal week to kickstart her season properly.


As for doubles, I think it's clear that her fellow Romanian, Sorana, is her favourite partner as they now have a 9-5 tour record and Sorana is the only player she has reached 2 semifinals with now (and indeed, the only player she has won a semifinal with). I'd love to see them play the whole year.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Good tournament for Monica

Up against Amelie next so a big test. She should get some T.V time so can anybody here watch the match?

Good luck Monica...put in a good showing.
