Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I guess we should also put an end to the nonsense that she is owning any BBB:

Some of her matches against bashers this year:

Torro-Flor 1-6 5-7
Kvitova 4-6 1-6
Barthel 3-6 6-4 5-7 (triple MP choke)
Vandeweghe 0-6 3-6
Parmentier 5-7 6-1 3-6

Any single of these losses was emberrassing for different reasons.

Of course she will still routine the Wickmayers and co. on obvious off-days, but on any other day, these matches are pretty open and she is finding herself more than not on the back foot.

I would say that her best match-ups are definitely players with an agressive mindset, but far too underpowered to hit through her (Beck, Svitolina, Cadantu, Babos, Kirilenko, Peng...)
All her matches against Kerber as well are pretty open.
