Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Even the American crowd was pathetic!

When Monica hit that awesome forehand drop shot in the first set, the people were like "OK, nice point"
But when Lucie hit return winners on some of Monica#s puffball serves, they were like "Awesome shot"

I mean, if any random and somehow clever person would be into Monica's position aginst Safarova, what would they have done? Exactly, keeping the ball in play!
I know that there are people who may hate her tennis, but they become so bitter then and insult her as a person!
On the other hand it means that Monica becomes relevant again!

Haters gonna hate!

Monica Such a clever girl She made Safarova looks like a beginner.

I am afraid of Kerber, but really who did expect at the beginning of the tournament that Monica will play for a place in QF?

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She lost by 4-6 3-6

But Kerber played a good match and dealt well with Moni's junk! Although she didn't look that well in the second set. The injury is till bothering her a bit, I guess

Tashkent slam is waiting for you!

Actually, the only thing which annoys me on this loss is the haters' bashing

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica withdrew from Tashkent and will lose her 130 points from last year!

Now with some injury problems still bothering her, her run at the US Open seens even more admirable!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Beijing, Qualifying Draw:

(6)Monica Niculescu (ROU) v Jill Craybas (USA)
Misaki Doi (JPN) v (14)Mathilde Johansson (FRA)

And she outjunked Craybas 6-0, 6-4 in R1, so now against Doi for a spot in the main draw!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This could be quite a match. All the pressure and expectation will be on Li, who hasn't played since her shock 1st round US Open loss to Simona. Monica, on the other hand has gotten a couple matches here to get a feel for the courts and some confidence.

Additionally, I really think Na Li's game could play into Monica's hands. If Na Li starts trying to kill all Monica's forehand slices for winners she is likely to end up with a lot of errors. That said, the truth is one never really knows how a player will deal with Monica's game until they face her. I am certainly not predicting Monica is going to win this match, if Li is playing her best tennis she is one of the elite players in the game, but I also do not see this as a foregone conclusion that Na Li is going to overpower Monica for an easy victory. Far from it. If Monica plays her game well, and Na Li comes out rusty and impatient, Monica has a real shot at creating a huge upset here. Let's not forget how Monica totally discombobulated Safarova at the US Open.

I am looking forward to this.
