You can already put the name Barrois in the Estoril Open trophy.

Jarka simply started to make too many UEs...

Let's face it! Clay is Jarka's weakest surface for sure.

She had two easy rounds and now when she has been troubled for the first time, her game broke together... :shrug:

But still a very nice win from Moni! :yeah:

Mostly the 2nd. At least in the 2nd set it was.

I haven't seen today's match (but JoseMorgado did and he was telling me some infos) but I saw Monica's match against Beth and it was only Beth playing to Monica's BH and then coming to the net and failing volleys or making silly UEs. So today's match have been probably the same...

I wanted Gajdosova to win this but I'm happy for Niculescu all the same. She's nothing if not a hard worker :lol:

Niculescu/AMG match is gonna be 3 hours long at least :drool:

Its the week before a Mandatory so I can understand why players in the main draw want to get to Madrid

WOW Monica :worship: really happy for her to make the top fifty :D I honestly didn't think she ever would. Now keep going higher ;)!

Jarka :hug: this was a tournament she should've won :o but still very recent after her divorce, so I can understand. She needs to pick up some points before the French though, because she has a lot to defend there.

Did Jarka tank it to go to Madrid? Cause if she didn't this is really pathetic!

Wow!!! This is just a thrilling result. One of the best of Monica's career. I knew Monica was heading back to the top 50 but to see it happen is very pleasing indeed. AMG will be very tough in the next round but already this tournament has been a huge success for Monica and I am simply looking forward now to seeing how much Monica can keep building on this. Two very hard fought 3 set victories against seeded opposition, both of which Monica won going away in the 3rd reflects very well on the fact that Monica seems to be able to sustain her level of play for an entire match, even a lengthy one far for probably the 1st time in her career.

Congratulations Monica, you just keep getting better. :bowdown: :woohoo: :banana:

A couple of years ago at the end of 2008 Monica actually reached a career high of 47. But then in 2009 it all went badly wrong and Monica didn't really get her game back together again until Wimbledon last year. But now she is definately a stronger player mentally than she was in 2008 and that career high of 47 is soon going to be left in the dust. :rocker:

That's a bummer. Jarka really was the fave here and it's just annoying to see if you're fave loses against a player you don't like. I just have problems with Players who are unable to beat other players with their own skills, they just wait until opponents game explodes, unfortunately it works quiet well :o:o Jarka really needs some points before RG and Wimbledon, I hope she'll be able to stay Top 30... As for the Tournament itself I REALLY hope either Larsson or Barrois take the title :(
