Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

6-4 first set after 9 consecutive breaks on serve Of course, Monica held when she served for set, like a mental giant she is.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

6-2 6-0 in doubles with her marathon match buddy MEC against #3 seeds Zakopalova/Kudryavtseva.

Don't think it's gonna be streamed before the semis, it's an Asian tournament after all. They have to live up to their standards.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

The match against Laura was indeed streamed and it was a good one to watch. Monica played a very smart game, she served pretty well and really adjusted her play perfectly for the surface and her opponent. It was a totally different Monica to what we saw at the end of the 2012 season indoors. This Monica was much less flashy and aggressive than the one who played so well indoors last Autumn but she was just as effective.

I'm feeling very positive about Monica's 2013, all the pieces really seem to finally be falling into place. Never seen Monica so focused and unflappable as has the last few tournaments, including here. And the way she is adjusting her gameplan depending on her opponents and the surface is really nice to see as well.

Monica hasn't played Chang, who will in all likelihood be her next opponent, before and on the surface that would seem a tougher match up for her than Laura but if Monica can play as solidly as she did today and if she can continue to serve consistently then I think she has a very decent shot at a semifinal. The nice thing is that right now, the way Monica is going about her business, I actually fancy her chances in a close match, which has often not been the chance.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Expected result and scoreline.

And her nemesis JJ out, so she should really reach the semis here at least and then we'll see.
