Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
Two years ago Monica was on a Romanian tv channel in the commentators box for Wimbledon's men's doubles final, as fellow Romanian Horia Tecau was playing for the title.
When asked about her less favourite surface she answered without any hesitation grass. She just said that she feels less comfortable on grass than on any other surface, clay included. And she was giving this answers just a week after a quick win for her over Sybille Bammer.
That's why her decision of not playing a grass tournament right after RG it doesn't surprise me at all.
Well she has to get over that attitude then. Because her game is ideal for grass. She just needs to play on it more to get a better feel of what works on it and how she can use that slice of hers to her best advantage on this surface.
