Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
That's a pretty good 1st round I think. Of course after all this time out we have no way of knowing what sort of form Shaughnessy is in but, hey, it could have been a whole lot tougher. I'm optimistic. Obviously, after the 1st round any additional wins would be a nice added bonus but as long as Monica gets past Meghann I'm satisfied.
And in doubles the latest in Monica's long line in doubles partners is Yung-Jan Chan. She of course was part of one of the best doubles partnerships in tennis when she played with Chia-Jung Chuang. But since the split she hasn't really done much doubleswise. We will see how this partnership goes. They have a moderately easy 1st round against Foretz and Spears in the 1st round but then it gets much much tougher as they will probably face Huber/Black in the quarters. Monica did beat Black and Huber in Indian Wells when paired with Kleybanova but it is always a big ask to beat the top seeds and who knows how this new team will work. Personally I really do wish Monica would get a steady partner. Yaroslava Shvedova and Monica would be a perfect team.
