Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well they lost, quick 62 61 against a very good team tho...

Here's a report from the GM section of Moni's last match:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Jonah Leon View Post

Zarina’s coach had just talked to her when I got there and immediately she broke with the help of two fh errors from Niculescu which prompted her to change rackets. In case you don’t know which I’m sure you do, Niculescu slices every fh shot and believe me, that is not easy to deal with if your not prepared to play against it. Anyways, I was very impressed with Zarina. She’s aggressive but consistent and she waits for the right moment to pounce, but still dictates the rally. The rallies were longer than anything I saw yesterday but they were usually controlled by Zarina who often put relentless pressure on Niculescu who would eventually hit a bad slice, or bh out. Zarina isn’t really powerful but she places the ball well and uses variety. For example, there was a long rally where Zarina moon balled and that forced Niculescu to moon ball a shorter ball which Zarina smashed away. She also comes to the net more than the average player. Too many long rallies ended with Niculescu error’s and soon it was 6-2,3-0 and Niculescu was in tears. She started using her backhand more which she can really flatten out well, but it’s too inconsistent and it wasn’t enough to combat Zarina’s aggressive consistency. Zarina makes up for her lack of power with great tactics and precision but once she plays a hard-hitter with a big serve, she could be in trouble.
Plus, pics from doubles

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

This is actually a good draw, but of course, we're talking about Monica here, so anything can happen. Wishing for the best though

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica basically secured her spot in a Singles rubber against the Czech Republic in a possible next Fed Cup encounter.

You didn't see the match, but you still know it all.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I am reminded on virtually a daily basis of Monica's win over Beck last fall, as for some reason this is the page that my browser remembers first from TF So, let's go for the repeat


Also I see some people on this board very interested in "cold handshakes" recently. Well then... all hail the queen

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lost to Beck this time... NID outcome when she had to serve to stay in the match.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Among the youngsters Beck is one of those with a safe and clean game so she probably could handle Monica's style.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica lost all concentration when one of Beck's balls was called in (think it was at 30 all on Beck's serve) . Her coach was saying something about a clear out and the umpire said 'quiet please.' Moni turned to the umpire and said "what quiet? You just need to watch the ball. That was a very important point and the ball was out." Followed by a quiet dute-n pizda matii after the chair ump backed up the call. She never played that well the rest of the match .
