Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Wow. This is exciting but scary. All logic and common sense say Monica should win this thing tomorrow. Obviously my heart agrees. But I have to be honest. I don't want to get my hopes up and then be disappointed. So I am trying very hard to tell myself that Olga hit some cracking winners against Venus that would have beaten anyone. She played great. And weird things can happen in finals.

Yeah, basically I'm trying very hard to tell myself any damn thing I can in order to not count my eggs before they hatch. But I really really really want to see them eggs hatching tomorrow.

COME ON MONICA!!!!!!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yeh Olga was striking the ball very well today. But Venus was giving her a lot of pace. She probably won't deal as well with Monica's slice.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I watched most of Monica's game today and part of 3rd set of her tomorrow opponent's game. I thought Venus gave the game away. I may be wrong but I just can't see how Monica can lose against this Russian girl.
I also got the impression that Monica got to play a string of matches against players with similar play style in this tournament.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I'm actually surprised to see how many people seem to support Monica in GM at the moment.

Maybe some people on the board finally got used to the idea that tennis is a game which can be understood quite differently from player to player.

I am very happy for her results.
Haven't seen the last 2 matches and I will not see the final also.
Take the title now Monica. GL !

It just finished a crazy handball match that kept me in great tension. Champions league women.
Definitely not good for the health.

It's only that I have noticed that the more vocal the people are on GM, the more likely they are going to reject Monica and her game which is giving us a wrong impression.

She is still hated, but now also appreciated by the same amount.

wait until she beats a GM-fave and/or has a deep run (which hopefully happens) in a premier and she'll be back to full hated mode

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Just childish overreaction.

Most fanboys/girls are super pissed when their faves are losing and hate a certain player the next couple of time. It's just that some players are easier to be bashed than others.

Monica with her unorthodox game is giving haters a free pass to hate, approved by so called tennis experts trying to save the dignity of the sport. She is als not the most beautiful woman - dislike reason #2, she is very vocal on court - dislike reason #3 and comes from a country that isn't popular on GM by any means - dislike reason #4.

Anyway, Monica isn't that kind of woman to care about such shit at all. Just look how she dealed with the crowd yesterday, no biggie. I think she never had it easy with her youth coaches playing like this, so she is more than used to odd reactions.
