Yep, unwatchable right now, far too centered, simply spiritless.

Once Nastya improved a bit, she was toast and squandering GPs/BPs chances left and right doesn't help either.

Well, she saved one bp. Result was the same, end the end, though.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

My bed is calling me.

0/100 on BPs and GPs deserves some honurable mention, though.

Reaching SF isn't bad considering how strong a field that was. I hope she can win some matches on clay at least.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Watching this match finally helped me understand why the majority of non-Romanian fans don't like Monica's style. The characterization can easily switch from just "different" to "rudimentary". I mean all she can do is slice on forehand down the middle with the ball barely passing over the net?

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Did she get a stinger or something in her hand because it looks like she has no strength.

Ha, somehow she manged a break.

I see your point.

Exactly, there is no other player who is looking so ugly on an off-day, even ballbashers don't. Monica lives from her Point construction and clever game plan, but this is bullshit at the moment. It only pains me that most People don't give her credit even when she is playing well.

Every Player has bad days in the office, though, so I won't judge.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Great, this doesn't freaking make any sense. Somehow it's 4-4 with the way Monica plays. I don't get the women tennis sometimes.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Looks like it was just an illusion. I think Nastya should take it 6-4 now.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It actually gives me hopes that she brought a Top 30 player close to defeat playing like 30%.

And that was about the only positive thing about this match.
