Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

my biggest puzzle about her is how can she struggle so much on grass...I know that the lack of serve kills her chances, but Tanasugarn didn't have a better serve when she made it to the QF
I mean, her game could be so effective on the surface...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Withdrew from Nürnberg.

Can't say that I'm sad about it as long as it is nothing serious.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Errani withdrew from Eastbourne, so Monica is in the MD now.

Hopefully we'll have a chance to see her in action on grass before Wimbledon

Preach ! Although it would have been better on hard courts.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She has second-round Dutch Open points to defend.

Go Monica!

Same here.

Obviously there are times when Petra is absolutely unbeatable by anyone other than perhaps Serena.

But there are plenty of other times when Petra is very vunerable and Monica is exactly the kind of player who can cause her trouble in those occasions. And Petra very often works her way into tournaments playing poorly at first but improving round by round. Sometimes that can work but other times she can get caught out.

To win this match, Monica will need Petra to be having one of those days, but Petra has been having a lot of those days so a win isn't that unrealistic.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Kookie is a very good grass doubles player, and Monica has some presentable grass results as well. I think with this draw an upset is possible and they can make the final here.
