Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
Niculescu - Peer
. Easy AO R1.
Probably Lisicki for R2
Monica was always going to draw a seed in one of the 1st two rounds. Lisicki is one of the best seeds she could have drawn. Firstly Lisicki is quite a good match up for Monica and indeed Monica does lead their H2H. Secondly, Lisicki hasn't been well and she tends to recover pretty slowly when she suffers one her periodic illnesses. I see a good opportunity for Monica making the at least the 3rd round here.
The draw could have been much much worse. I'm quite happy with this.
