Great job Monica!! Didn't let the opponent breathe... :D Welcome to top 100! :worship:

Next up is (16) Makarova, who had a very tough match against a not-so-well-known Italian... Good luck Moni!

What a shame for Pauline !

Now go in Strasbourg. You need win some points.

Wonderful result for Monica, not just beating but completely outclassing a top 50 player. Definately her best ever win on clay. It looks now like Monica is playing as well on clay and on all the other surfaces.

When Monica gets on a roll she can really toy with her opponents. Incredibly this is the 11th time in the last 7 months that Monica has overwhelmed an opponent while losing 2 or fewer games. In that same time period she has bageled her opponents 13 times. :bounce:

One never knows in the game of tennis, but I'm liking Monica's chances of winning tomorrow and qualifying and I think she could get some wins in the main draw too the way she is going. :rocker:

Is Niculescu the player who regularly uses a forehand slice?
