Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Thanks for the comment and interesting how we just mentioned chemistry in two different threads. Hopefully we'll see more great plays from Monica and YJ. Looking foward to this AO 2010!

Melbourne.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica and Yung-Jan just beat Dulko and Zheng 6-3 6-4 winning the last 4 games in a row. Very nice job girls.

Having seen the last few games of that I am more convinced than ever that Yung-Jan is Monica's best choice as a permanent partner. I can think of several other choices that would also certainly work out pretty well, like King, Amanmuradova and Kudryavtseva, but I think Monica and Yung-Jan really have something pretty good going together and I would be thrill if they carried this team forward throughout the year. I think they could really make a big impact in a lot of important tournaments this year.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I didn't see her with the other girls so I can't judge. But honestly I thought King for her would be similar to Chan to her. I don't know. Anyway as you said they are 5-1 now and all over quality teams, and this record must say something. Either team wins in SF I'd feel great as long as they put on a good show. Hope this will help both girls singles too in the coming week.

Melbourne.

Yeah I think Monica and Vania work well together too but they haven't produced as good results as Monica and Yung-Jan have and I just get a feeling Monica and Yung-Jan have an intangible quality together that works very well. They really do look like a team out there. I do hope they continue.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well pretty lousy AO draw I must say. I suppose the one positive is that Jankovic doesn't appear to be in terribly good form and Monica was at least quite competitive against Jelena in their 1st two matches. Still, it's hard to imagine Monica winning this match and losing 100 ranking points when Monica's points from last year come off is going to hurt. Must admit, I'm bummed.

Hope they'll just continue in Melbourne, I'll be sad if not.

Me too. I want to see them continue in the AO and beyond.

Great win today against Hsieh and Peng, both ranked in the top 12 in doubles. Remarkable thing is YJ and Monica were able to beat them without even playing their best. Plain and simple the two of them would be mad not continue playing together.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yeah, I have to admit I was pretty disappointed that YJ and Monica didn't take the title. But they came mighty close and lost to another good team I suppose. Monica still continues to show she is a great doubles player.
