Also some relevant stats from the 2016 season... that graph with fh speeds

Set scores stats: https://twitter.com/StatsWTA/status/793101409621307392 (Monica is 3rd in WTA in bagel% )

Nightcrawl3r And she got in 16th place in the annual TennisForum favorite players poll . That's quite huge for Monica tbh, on the fans side. Halep was 12th. The Luxembourg title and speech must have made an important impact.

Also, if you wanna include them in the annual lists of Who are your favorite players, would be great . You have to put at least 5 liked players and 5 not so liked : http://www.tennisforum.com/12-genera...our-lists.html


She'll begin 2017 in Shenzhen (seeded #8) and Hobart (seeded #3). She would have wanted Sydney, but cut was at #29 .

Well Monica did make the Shot of the Year..... only at the wrong side of the net

To compensate, here are some of Monica's best points of the years

^ They closed it out before I got to the poll, but she made it through anyway. Will try to find it earlier for the next round

Yeah, just that I was pissed after that set she should have won. I know Davis and I was following the Livescore in Luxembourg SF hoping Kvitova would win . At least that worked out, otherwise Monica might have been 0-2 in WTA finals this year.

Anyway, great year. 2nd (tied) best season end in singles and first of the 3 with a title and best (by far) in Doubles , which is awesome .

Anyway Monica really saved her season at the end with Seoul and Luxembourg Actually even with the injury, still turned out to be a good season, finishing basically with the same ranking as last year in singles, peaking in dubs and bringing home a total of 4 WTA titles

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

I got quite pissed after that first set which she should have won and turned off the stream .

Well, that's kinda it for 2016 tournaments, unless she'll request and be granted a WC in Limoges.

Lost in straights, but put up a god fight to come back from 0-3* down in the second

Beat Sasnovich 46 64 63 to reach the QF
When Monica lost the first set after having 4-2 40-15, I was thinking maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing to lose in straights and call it a year... but Monica persevered, as she usually does, and her reward will be another difficult match against Lauren Davis.

Was a good workout today
I'm really not looking forward to the match against Sasnovich, last time they played it lasted like 8 1/2 hours and Monica lost after holding a couple of MP's. Hope at least it will be entertaining, after all both are former winners in Poitiers
