Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
Monica will probably sink back into oblivion for the next couple of months, aka clay season. It's just not favouring her game at all and she will have to hope for some good draws up against her pigeons, to stay in the competition for a nice year end ranking.
She seems to be very aware of that herself. She will play Monterrey now which if it does play as fast as last year, should be a very good surface for her.
Can't say much about the match without watching. First set could have gone either way, but Miami's courts always troubled her. Hampton is a good player, anyway.

Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
