WTA Madrid, Qualifying:
R1: (2)Monica Niculescu def. (WC)Ines Ferrer Suarez 6:4 6:4
R2: (2)Monica Niculescu def. (10)Alla Kudryavtseva 2:6 6:4 6:4
Against Kudryavtseva she was trailing 2-4 in the final set!
Nice fight which shows that she has definitely improved her mental game and attitude! That she has enough stamina for 4 hour matches was known, anyway.
And she could be really lucky about the draw, too because she got the first round match against another qualifier Chanelle Scheepers!
If she wins today, she will reach a new career high the week after Madrid!
Come on, Monica!
