And by the looks of it, she'll go down in straight sets

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

The only weird thing is that it's obviously not her lack of serve that lets her down. The serve stats are pretty well for her standards on these slow courts, but she can't break through her opponent, reminds me of the match against Flipkens.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She had great first serves stats as long as I can remember, but that is not enough to win her matches

Well, she broke Hampton's serve now, but it's kinda late.

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.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Time to get back with her feet on the ground.
Last weak, after double bageling Svitolina, on a BBC live broadcasting, she started rambling about getting back in the top 30. Well, dear Monica, as much as I love you, let's face it - you'll never get back there with such poor performances against players you are supposed to win on your favourite surface!
Best of luck, though!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Hampton is pretty good. It sucks that Monica lost but I am not surprised about this game.

Yeah, one thing I really like about Monica at the moment is she does seem to have a real good understanding of her strengths and weaknesses and she definitely seems to know what she needs to improve. She also has managed her schedule very smartly which is nice to see. Playing Paris again was a good move, even if it didn't work out, playing Florianopolis was an excellent choice and Monterrey also looks like being a fine choice. Really hope she gets some wins there. Clay will as always be a test, and she will, as always, need some good match-ups on that surface (ballbashers? Yes please Spanish and Italian dirtballers? No thank you ) but I do believe Monica is playing the best tennis of her life right now and with a little bit of kindness from the god who is responsible for tennis draws the clay season might turn out to be not so bad after all.

As for today's match...I was hoping for a win today but this result is hardly a surprise. Yeah, Hampton is a good player alright.
