Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

After a very good first day in the Fed cup, it seems Monica has kept her good form. She took the first set off Ana Ivanovic, and even though she lost the second set, she leads in the third! Go Monica! Too bad the official web site does not give live scores, luckily some people watch it on TV and post the scores (on Ana's website! ).

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well....it would have been brilliant if Monica was able to pull off the win but to come so close to beating the number 2 player in the world is still a heck of a good performance. Monica really showed today that she can compete with the best players in the world and I hope she can gain some confidence and pride from that performance. I really do have big hopes for this year for Monica. Top 50 looks very realistic to me.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

You really showed you deserve to be on the Romanian team, Monica. You played your heart out and showed what great player you are. Just keep it going. I want to see you win lots of matches this year.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well done Monica.

But something confuses me. Romania would have finished 2nd in their group behind Serbia and ahead of Poland. The winners of Group D played (and beat) Holland for the chance to get to the World Group II playoffs. But having finished 2nd in Group D why should Romania have to play Belarus now and what exactly were they playing for?

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

The Romanian team played for being ranked 5th or 7th. Even though this does not have any importance for this year's Fed cup, it should reflect for the seedings in the future. But since nothing is clearly explained on the official web site, I have no idea how important this is. And anyway, they won, so they finished the tie in 5th place, together with Hungary. When the fedcup.com ranking page will be updated, we can see if anything changed (currently Romanian is ranked 42nd).

Thanks so much for that information. I was really puzzled.

Actually seems like it worked out nicely playing that last tie anyway. Destroying Belarus would have been just the thing for the team to get over the disappointment about just missing out to Serbia. At least Monica and Sorana will have been able to leave Hungary with a good feeling thanks to this tie.

Next year Romania gets promoted for sure.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She's off to Antwerp now. Good luck.

Also, she is right now scheduled to play at Bangalore and I'm going, so I will finally get to see her play.

It is a good move that Monica is now starting to move on from the 25ks. I think she is ready for the WTA tour. It is definately an exciting period in her career just now. Hope she does well both in both places.

Regarding you going to Bangalore, what can I say? That is so cool.

I'm sure you will have a great time. The line up looks excellent with a lot of cool players listed. Check out Yaroslava Shvedova, the defending champion, while you are there also.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Monica lost her 1st round qualifying match in Antwerp to Pironkova I'm afraid 6-4 6-1. Looking at the match stats all I can say is "ouch!". After playing so well and serving so well against Ivanovic in Fed Cup today's match looks like a bit of a disaster. Monica was broken 7 out of 8 times during the match and missed numerous game points throughout. Monica did break Pironkova 4 times as well but I suspect 7 dfs and no aces likely played a part in Pironkova getting broken a few times.

Clearly a bad match from Monica. On a positive note, these have been far and few inbetween over the last few months. Hopefully this was a one off and I would like to forget this happened ASAP. I'm sure Monica and everyone in her corner would feel likewise.
