Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica is really on fire in doubles as of late

After beating the Bondarenkos yesterday this is todays result of her Cincinnati QF:

Amanmuradova/Niculescu (UZB/ROU) d. Dushevina/Rodionova (RUS) 4-6 6-3 10-8

In the SF Monica meets again with #1 seeds Black and Huber. Can she do it again by the side of Akgul? She's getting really close to doubles top 20 now.

Hopefully her doubles skills will give her singles results a boost in the near future.

Yeah, it's a fairly tough draw. Were Monica to lose the doubles today to Black and Huber I think she could make it to Toronto without much problem. Flights take just 90 minutes. Thing is it would require Monica to win two matches after having just arrived with minimal time for adjusting to the conditions of the Toronto hardcourts which will undoubtably be a little different to those in Cincinati. Not easy.

Sure, if Monica loses to Black and Huber today she should give it a go but I would prefer to see her get to another doubles final which she and Akgul can win even if it means no qualifying for Monica in Canada. Right now I think it is important for Monica to establish herself as one of the best doubles players on the tour.

Infact I would say she is already the best doubles player in the world without a regular partner. That's a good position to be in. I think right now a lot of girls will be queueing up for the priviledged role of getting to be her regular partner. Monica in the meantime can just take her time and keep on doing what she is doing rotating partners on a weekly basis. I think however she should be looking to start next year with a regular partner that she can win Grand Slams with and become half of one of the leading teams in the world.

(1)Black/Huber d. Amanmuradova/Niculescu 64 61

Still a very good doubles week again. Now she can hurry to Toronto to play her match with Vania King tomorrow. Also a girl she knows well, so it should be tight.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yes, let's hope Monica gets to Toronto in good shape to take on Vania King. I'm also already getting impatient to see the doubles draw. I can't wait to see who will be Monica's partner for the week.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She is playing doubles with Vania King in Toronto. In the first round they play against Martinez Sanchez en Llagostera Vives.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Tough draw, maybe the Spanish will be tired from Cincy? Funny that she plays with Vania King here again. She leads 6-1 2-1 at the moment.

Could hardly be tougher.

If they can win that I will be thrilled but the Spanairds are a damn good team. Monica and Vania are an excellent team too but the Spaniards are one of only maybe 3 or 4 teams I really would have wanted Monica/Vania to avoid in the 1st round.

Oh also worth mentioning Vania King will also be Monica's partner at the US Open. I'm happy with this pairing. I think they can go a long way.

Very happy too with Monica's win over Vania in her singles qualifying match too. Nice fighting from Monica in the third. Very good to see. It does look like all Monica's recent doubles success is rubbing off a bit on her singles play. Definately feels like Monica is back to playing good competitive singles matches again which is a relief.

She must be tired though with all the travelling and tennis she has done lately and having to play a 2nd matches today against Gisela Dulko won't be easy at all. If Monica can win that would absolutely be phenomenal. Hopefully at the very least Monica will give a good account of herself.

Yeah, I don't expect much from her match against Gisela either but this win over Vania was pretty nice

Amazingly she managed to find some more energy to beat Gisela Dulko 2-6 6-1 6-3

Great job, just a really great job!
