Couldn't be much better to be honest, but it's her first match on clay, so we'll see.
looks like mission impossible

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She is simply blowing too many chances on the return and could have easily won that 1st set...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

3-6 5-7

Wasted 2 BPs at 5-6, crested by an overhead fail on MP.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

da a facut mai multe greseli decit ca de obicei,dar sa fim seriosi italianca nu e o jucatoare agresiva,nici nu are lovituri puternice,monica a avut multe sanse sa o desloce din centrul terenului,si sa o plimbe putin.nu spun ca trebuia sa joace la linie,1.5 m.stinga,dreapta era de ajuns ..castiga fara prob. monica daca cont. sa joace asa,ma tem ca la sfirsitul anului nici in top 40 o sa mai fie.

Using the word shot selection would indicate that she is consciously selecting a shot which she doesn't most of the time.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Plays (Q)Dominguez-Lino 2nd match on Court 5. I'd pay to watch that sh*t.

Let the moonballing begin!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Nope, Court 5.

Monica should win this one if Madrid really is that fast. LDL only had scrubs to beat in Q who squandered a gazillion of BPs and I don't see any weapons in her game that could troble Nics, to be honest, not to mention that her serve works better on faster courts anyway.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well I hope the court is fast for Monica's sake. But it is a huge advantage getting into the main draw with a couple of qualie wins under your belt. And LDL is the kind of player I can see giving Monica a lot of trouble on clay. She will certainly get a lot of balls back and I can see LDL winning the battle to keep the error count low. On top of that Monica's results the last couple of months have been poor.

In short, to be completely honest, I'm not optimistic about this match. But Monica is sometimes a hard player to predict what she will do and I would never doubt her ability to surprise me.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yeah, and wasting gazilion of GPs every service game doesn't help either...

I guess I overestimated her.
