The last few games, and the tiebreak in particular were beyond comical... I mean I could understand Monica being overwhelmed by the pressure and going soft.... but wtf kind of reason had Hercog, she was even more tense!! she turned into a massive pusher at the end
Whenever Hercog seemed to have the momentum on her side, she was spraying even more errors: at the start of the final set, at 5-5, at the start of the TB.

Moreover, she was standing as far behind the service box as if it was Keys serving on the other side of the net. The best moment was when one of Monica's serves at BP dropped so short that Hercog herself seemed surprised and botched the easy put away into the tramline.

Highly unimpressive Hercoq. I only really liked her solid, high percentage second serve (basically a kick serve). I agreed with the commentator when he said smth like "the coaches did a great job teaching Hercog how to hit, she was very good mechanics, but she has no feeling for her shots". Monica shouldn't have dropped her level in the second set, this shouldn't have gone three sets, but ofc playing under 2 1/2 hours is not her style.

Halep looked unbeatable yesterday. I'm sure that Monica wants to be a good friend and send Simona early in that vacation she desperately needs, but it's a bad matchup for her. The positive thing, she's such a big underdog that there should be no pressure, she's got nothing to loose... Enjoy yourself Monica and do your magic

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Great fight to break for 1-2.... but the serve

How many points can she give away like that??? Halep has only one or two winners.... 1-3*


edit... starting to get outplayed *1-4

Holds for 2-4.... just to give away the next game with poor returns and a really dumb UE...


DF, UE, UE and UE ... to give away the first set to Halep, who isn't doing anything

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

*1-2 second set... starting to be a bad match. Halep can't hit a winner and doesn't even try anymore, just pushes through the middle... and Moni is UE-ing left and right

*2-3 Moni breaks with a lot of help from Halep

*4-3 Another break for Monica... Halep is just bad now

5-3* Beautiful DTL winner to hold

Omg... the ultimate fighter takes the set

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

*0-1 the luckiest hold ever for Halep...

followed by the luckiest break ever for Halep 0-2*

*0-3 Monica broke down, the nerves got to her... UE after UE after UE... Halep is about to win despite not hitting a winner for hours

omg Monica is totally lost now.... losing net points to Halep... wut???

0-4* UE fest continues, with also a rare winner from Halep this time

*1-4 finally a game where Moni makes no UE... breaks easy! C'mon!

1-5* Threes UE's to give Halep yet another game...

GSM This was such a bad set... I have no words... a sleepwalking Halep managed to win it

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

A shame. I expected Simona to blast Monica off the court but she was actually very beatable today.

Still a great week for Monica on clay
