In this match it was the best serving I have seen from Monica in a long time.
She was good in rallies but the service got her a lot of points and was decisive for the win.
"Unbelievable" like she would say.

Bit surprised that she lost!

This just isn't the AO for the Romanians.

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

After the match Monica said in that interview that she was disappointed with this loss but isn't upset at herself because she fought until the last ball. She wished she could have been more aggressive, come forward more times, take the initiative but felt that Kulichkova played very well and very deep shots so that she couldn't play her game. Also said that it was a big disadvantage for her, having to play so late, especially the third set, was already evening and she felt the balls very heavy, had no power in her shots or her serve

Damn it .Saw only the first set and tbh things didn't "sparkle" me.

Missed opportunity. And I don't know what she can do in doubles with an injured Begu ...

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

Monica her special FH today totally didn't work, it was too easy to face... while the BH was a bit too erratic. Second set was actually really great, nice display of variations and technique, but third......

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

That challenge at 3-4 15-all in the third. I was literally yelling at her to just put the ball away.
Impressed that she didn't fold after that, though. Gutted out another tough hold and even saved a MP with a winner.
I'm not sure how to feel, really. Great fight, but this was a missed opportunity. *sigh*

Yup she let Kulichkova into the match and that third set was a battle. Wish she could have won it.

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

Moni lost in the second round after what really was a good match. She just disappeared after a good start to the third, could have made it 3-0* but instead made some silly errors to bring her opponent back in the match. Barely won any points in the next few games but at least she tried to fight till the end.

Just a bit sad tho as Monica showed this match was very winnable, when she raised her level in the second set, she had no problems and almost bageled Kulichkova. Problem is she ended up with a massive 40 UE's, almost half of which in the third set That probably made the difference in a very close match (they actually were tied at total points won 99-99 ). Anyway I don't want to be negative because it wasn't a bad match and Monica really put up a good fight
