Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

A question for you guys, do you still think the general opinion is that Monica is a clay court specialist?
It never looked like that to me.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica is as far away from a clay specialist than sun is from the moon.
It's just that some 'experts' on this board think that clay is always the best surface for any defensive minded player.

Monica doesn't play a claycourt game at all. Dulgheru - she is a clay specialist who is going for the topspin shots on both wings, crueling rallies, wide angles try to get your opponent out of position and then make a step in when there is the chance to do so.

I don't know where this 'pusher' = clay specialist myth comes from.
I know a lot of defensive minded players who suck badly on the dirt, because they are hitting the ball rather flat and it's easier to return them on slower surfaces when they set up and they don't get the pace of the opponent to counter attack. It also exposes the lack of depth on their shots.

Did you see Radwanska in Brussels last year? Even though she ended up winning, her strokes are a complete joke on clay, there is nothing on her game.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I hope Monica isn't too nervous It's the first final where she is the favorite.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She is playing someone who got double bageled in her last final.

So, I expect them both to be very shaky out there for different reasons.

Pouchkova is also really inconsistent. For example she only won 5 games against Tomljanovic a couple of weeks ago in Midland, also got bageled by Cohen in Baku last year.
In general, most of her scorelines against defensive minded players are rather underwhelming to be honest.

Nope.

I just wanted to ask the same.

I have been told a backhand from Mladenovic destroyed the microphone yesterday.

Going to be tough if Pouchkova keeps serving like that.
