Tiredness
Maybe she wants to have a break after two dense weeks.

She plays Strasbourg next week, right?

I think she is listed for Strsbourg, yeah. I hope she turns up.

I can understand her taking a week off. The previous week was quite taxing but on the other hand this did seem a pretty good opportunity to pick up another 100 ranking points.

Nevermind, hopefully Monica can do well next week and at RG and if she is going to be playing a couple of grass warmups as I hope she is it probably does make sense to take a week off to recoup, otherwise Monica risks playing a lot of consecutive weeks.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It appears that Monica pulled out of Strasbourg at the last minute bumping Sania Mirza into the main draw. No idea why she pulled out but this is now two tournaments in a row she has pulled out of. Quite worrying.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

RG, Main Draw:

(21) Yanina Wickmayer v Monica Niculescu
(WC) Kristina Mladenovic v Ayumi Morita
Sania Mirza v Kristina Barrois
Patricia Mayr-Achleitner v (12) Agnieszka Radwanska

This match up will be a big showbag because both players' current shape and state of body is unknown...

Let's hope Moni can pull out a surprise!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

French Open, Round 1:

(21)Yanina Wickmayer def. Monica Niculescu 6:0 6:3

Serve was completely off today and Yanina seems to have recovered well from her injury, though Monica's state of health... .shrug:

Match stats:
http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/sc...y8/2153ms.html

9 winners, 21 UEs...

Unfortunately she is the only Romanian in main draw who got out in round 1!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yeah indeed, she was playing a good match. She made it Kim very hard. I think she can be proud about her match. Just sad she couldn't take the chances she had.
