Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
Lost 61 75. Torro-Flor is a good clay courter but...
Not expected at all.
The problem is that since I followed Romanian WTA tennis closer, there has never been one slam where at least one unseeded Romanian tennis player didn't draw a Top 10 player.
I only hope it's not Monica.
As I am a probabilities „fan” this made me curious.
A Romanian player in MD of a slam has 10/127 =7.87% „chances’ to draw a top 10 seed.
As we usually have 5 players the probability that at least 1
to have a top 10 as a R1 opponent is calculated by adding 7.87+7.87+7.87+7.87+7.87=39.35%
And when Edina Gallovits had also good enough ranking for MD, then of the 6 players the bad luck for at least one goes to 47.22. Scary isn’t it Almost half.
So of 4 slams of the year 2 most probably will meet this situation.
If it happens in 3 or all 4 slams of the year the draws are rigged.
