Yup, as others have said, Monica is playing well and that is what matters most. She actually made a pretty good impression on the audience there who were definitely rooting for her and even more remarkably on the most of the posters who watched the match from TennisForum. It was a crap draw sure. But in the long run, it is better to be playing well and to lose to an elite player, than to play crap and get through to the 2nd round on the basis of an easy draw. As long as Monica maintains or even improves her current level she is in store for a great year.
