Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu
Wasn't Monica's best match. She made quite a few more errors than I expect her to make. And for most of the match, especially in the 2nd set she seemed to lack her usual inspiration. Towards the very end Monica's game did pick up though, the game she she broke to take a 5-1 lead in the final set was particularly nice.
But Yanina was very much out of sorts and she gifted Monica a lot of errors, and by the third set they were coming in bunches. Yanina did have a lot of trouble with Monica's slice today and Monica must have picked up at least 25 errors from Yanina with that shot alone.
Still, not a great match and Monica will need to be more consistent in the quarters.
