Played very good in a big part of the 2nd set vs. Radwanska, hitting also 18 winners in that set . Very unlucky to not take the 2nd set.

Hoping that the unnecessary stretch in the 1st set for that smash didn't hurt her back more than it is already ...

Not the best match but great fighting from Monica Would have preferred basically anybody in the draw for R2 (except Stosur obviously) but hopefully Monica remembers their last meeting and all the mistakes she did trying to hit through Aga.

Love it when Moni's "slice gone wrong" ends up being an unbelievable winner

3-6 7-5 6-1 , from 3-6 0-3* and 3-6 4-5*, 15-30 . . We are not worthy .


First time when I turned off a stream when Monica played, out of disappointment , at 6-3 *3-0. It was a shitfest till then.

Came back at 3-3. And wow .


She could have (easily) won in straights in other circumstances, against players like Ostapenko though. Problems over problems (medical) but somehow she wins matches (mostly in doubles though ) .

But last week she said she felt more or less ok, basically without pain. As I understood it she was almost in tears looking back at the previous weeks where her back was killing her and at one point she wasn't even sure if she'll be able to play tennis again But also, yeah... the field there isn't the strongest one. Injured Monica is still possibly the best player in the draw.

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

Her game and especially the BH was way off in the first set. Seemed to get a better feel for the ball in the second tho, was a decent set except for the end... Monica lost like the last 10 consecutive points or so Also McHale played very solid, in Hobart when Monica was in better form she just toyed with her but today was very difficult

Hope she and Yanina can win a couple of matches in dubs so she can have some match practice

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

. 3-6 4-6 . Looked a little better than against Hercog, as overall gameplay, even if it's a different service, but far from her potential ...

I'm sad . Please get healthy again.
