Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu (Cheering Thread)

2-6 6-7 .

Heartbreaking in the 2nd set. Although it was clay , many UEs and just patches of very good play. Better luck in Doubles I guess ....


P.S : She's mathematically qualified for the Olympics . Would be the 1st OG for her, after she was forced to withdraw in 2012.

As stated, Monica has a longstanding rivalry against Pauline.

Although Pauline had the better clayourt season, Monica leads in the h2h, including 3-0 on clay and 1-0 at slams.

Gluck to her!

Well, she'd have had plenty of time to recuperate till Monday-Tuesday when the match will be played.

Fingers crossed she did and she'll slay . If she wins (and please do ) , R2 would be easier than R1.

She won her biggest clay title against Parmentier last year, so that should be a good omen, right? Let's go!

Surprised to discover that Monica is 5-2 against Parmentier.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu (Cheering Thread)

it is kinda late and I am not too sure the whole thing makes a lot of sense, but I am overwhelmed by work and did not do the transpription by myself

however, I talked to Monica not long ago and that's the result of our chat

Very good run in Rome Doubles. 4th Premier 5 SF. Two places below her career high there.

Grass first @simostorm .

Unfortunately, it's not quite like that . She mentioned the problems in the first days from Rome http://www.romania-actualitati.ro/mo...-la-roma-89791 and it's not a new one (the back) .

Maybe she'll be seeded in RG after Q withdrawal, though if she doesn't feel better, chances are not quite increasing thanks to that.

Good job in dubs in Rome, made the semis with Begu Very close to her CHR in dubs, pretty sure she will improve her CHR soon

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu (Cheering Thread)

Unfortunately, I have to agree it's starting to look more and more like a confidence issue. Maybe playing a lesser event will help, though. She usually plays her way back into form, so maybe this time around it won't take too long since she doesn't have much time until RG anyway

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu (Cheering Thread)

Her RG seed position is in danger. F*CK . But with things like today, IDK how much would matter. Confidence level, back to where it started after those 3 missed MPs vs. Kvitova .

She's also scheduled to play Strasbourg next week where she would be seeded #5.
