Good week in doubles also.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Watched parts of the second set and the result seemed never in doubt. The Kichenok sisters are simply to weak on the returning end and can't deal with Monica's slice when she had the chance to throw it in. Also, Klara opened up the court nicely with some fine cross court hitting.

Looking forward to the AO with this team!

I would really like to see this match.
I've seen two Monica vs Magda matches. One at Roehampton (Wimbledon qualifying 1st round) and one at the 1st round of Wimbledon proper.

The 1st match was really fun, and the 1st time I got to see Monica live. I'd heard about Monica before this match and was very intrigued. I was already a fan of Magda's having seen her play in the juniors at Wimby the year before. By the end of the match I was officially a fan of both players.

The 2nd match was even better and one of the most enjoyable women's matches I've even seen live. The funny thing about this match up is that each of them really does bring out the best in the other. Because both girls like to slice, and both girls wanted to get to the net to volley and both were also using lots of lobs and dropshots, they were both forced to improvise a great deal more than is normally required in a tennis match. But as it happens both girls are damn good at improvising and so....you would get one crazy point with every corner of the court explored followed by another and another and yet another.

I couldn't stop grinning watching. The match was stopped by rain or darkness, I can't remember which after all this time with Magda leading 4-2 in the 3rd. The next day they played 16 points and Monica won every single one of them, and almost every one was a long and crazy point. Has to be the best Monica has ever played because Magda didn't actually play poorly those four games either.

Destroyed Magda 6-2 6-0

Full of confidence, Monica is the only Romanian player to convince right now.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Great way to start the year. Looks like Monica has taken her from in Shenzhen to an even higher level. So please Monica seems to be taking her doubles seriously this year too. Last year was an even bigger disappointment in doubles than singles. At least in singles there were some good high points to counter the lows but in doubles it seemed like she wasn't even interested. I have always thought being fully committed to her doubles game was important for her singles game, especially for being sharp around the net.

So far this year, we can say we have seen a big improvement in her serving, two comebacks from a set down showing some fine mental toughness, a very close match against a top 5 player who was playing at home, a tournament win in doubles, and now a complete demolition of a player who Monica has always had very competitive matches against in the past.

This is looking very nice indeed, I got to say.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Magda is in terrible form, she was dire against Lisicki last week. So I don't know what this result says on Monica's performance but you certainly can't trash your opponent like that without doing something right.

There is a reason Monica is called the Queen. Simona and Cirstea are cute and stuff but, at the end of the day, it's Mama Niculescu who's in charge and she proved it yet again
