Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It looks like it's not going to happen. I hope she wins though.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She has a good chance, but Flipkens is very smart. I remember the quaterfinal in Hobart against Monica. Flipkens was 46 24 down, but she came back and won the 3rd 60. I hope Monica will capitalize the advantage she has now.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Sorry, the score was 26 24, and it eventually ended 26 64 60 for Flipkens

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It was just 1 single 2nd serve at that time, though...

Broken to 0 when trying to stay in the 2nd set. Make it happen.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Bad loss to be honest. If she really wants to get to the Top 30, she has to take care of players like her. She almost won in Australia earlier this year despite being deadly tired, so I guess she was playing pretty bad today.

And also her return game was pretty off, serve actually pretty decent for those slow courts and for her standards.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well, yeah...
What makes me sad, besides Monica not improving at all since January and not learning anything from her last loss to Flipkens, is that she didn't took advantage of the boost of confidence (after winning Florianopolis and having such an amazing win over Svitolina). But yeah, expected loss...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It's always hard to judge without watching, but the points seem to be very quick. I guess tiredness played a role here and she couldn't go for that long rallies and great defense as in Florianopolis.

Flipkens is an intelligent player, but really no one Monica should fear. I mean it's not as if she is only winning against bashers, while Flipkens is no goddess. She lost to Puchkova last week, no smart player with a gameplan should lose to her. It's not easy like that.

I hope for some better stuff in Miami.

Second time Monica took the first set from Flipper then lost.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It looks like the Romanians either win in bunches or lose in bunches, it's contagious.
I still can't get my mind around Monica losing this match.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

^ Could just be psychological. Often happens in tight matches where there's a chance of an upset.

I know right?

Giving you hope for a great week, but bomb out in R2 without a chance, just like in Doha.

But that's the problem, because if you have a closer look at the rankings you have to say that more or less all our players belong to that category of too good to lose against Govortsova, Davis, Medina, Rus etc., but not good enough to challenge Top 20 players regularly.

The epitome of a journeywoman.
