Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Saving 18 BPs.. what a record

On a serious note: I hope she can stabilize her ranking around the 100s, at least for the GS MDs and then I hope she raises her level soon again

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well, Monica Niculescu has won her 1st singles match since Hobart in the beginning of Januany, beating Leticia Costas-Moreira, ranked 365, 5-7 6-4 6-4 in three hours and 27 minutes. Okay, so what does that tell us?

On the plus side it tells us that at least Monica must be in fairly good shape physically to have endured such a long marathon and come out of it on top. It also tells us that she is fighting hard and doing everything she can to win matches. It couldn't have been pleasant to drop the 1st set 7-5 after almost 90 minutes and it shows at least Monica's fighting spirit is intact that she didn't throw in the towel at that point.

On the less positive side, shall we say, however, it has to be said, that it doesn't say a lot for where Monica's game is at right now when it takes her almost 3 and a half hours to beat a girl ranked 365. Looking at this result, along with her other 3 post-AO results rather suggests that Monica probably isn't playing much better than around world 300 right now.

That's not good at all. However, things can change fast in tennis and as long as Monica is eager and healthy, and at least this win does suggest both of those in the affirmative, we have to expect she will improve on her current level if she is given enough matches.

More than anything, right now Monica needs matches to refind her game and her confidence. In a funny way, a three and a half hour tussle was probably the best thing that could have happened today, especially as she will now play another match tomorrow. Yurika Sema is next and she's pretty good, beat Date-Krumm in the US Open qualies last year and almost beat Wickmayer in the AO qualies this year. If Monica is going to win that she is going to have to raise her game substantially from today's level. It's possible. I really hope she does. Every additional match Monica can get this week will be a help in her refinding her game and right now that is even more important than things like ranking points.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

It's a worrying result indeed. But a win at least. I hope she gets back on track soon.

This is much more like it.

I really really hoped at the that that match against Costas-Moreira would help to play Monica back into form and it looks like that is just what has happened. Thank you, Leticia Costas-Moreira. Next up is Beatriz Garcia-Vidagany. Considering Monica's form coming in to this tournament and the fact that Garcia-Vidagany just beat Molik I guess we shouldn't take this girl lightly. But things are looking much more positive for Monica now than they did at the start of the event that's for sure.

I'm really really hoping now that Monica can qualify. Every match Monica can play right now will help her and playing in the main draw against a quality opponent would be a big and positive boost after three qualifying matches.

Getting back into the top 100 isn't going to happen overnight but Monica has definately taken her first steps in that direction this weekend and if she can keep fighting hard and winning these kinds of matches I have no doubt she will soon be back to the kind of form that took her to the top 50 just over one year ago.
