Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Estoril, QF:

Monica Niculescu def. Jarmila Gajdosova 5-7, 6-4, 6-2

130 points and TOP 50 HERE WE GO!!

This was an epic match for sure and it's a pity that it hasn't been streamed! So, I will look what Corswandt will post tomorrow and I am very curious about his impressions!

Monica started well leading 4-0 and 5-3, but when she served for the set she choked away some SPs to lose the first set eventually by 5-7.

In the second set, still down by her missed chance, she found herself again trailing by 2-4. Then 4 games ina row to win this second set as if she wanted to prove that she isn't the mental midget anymore she used to be. Last season at this point she would given the match up for sure or would have lost it after 4 hours and many wasted chances, but not today!

Moni dominated the completely down Jarka in the last set, so that she was able to hold her service games comfortably in the last set winning it by double break 6-2.

But apart from her mental strength and fighting spirit, another two things were quite impressive and remarkable! She took all 7 BPs she had in the overall match!
And won 70% of all points on her 2nd serve, which has only been a consecution of the stats against Sloane yesterday!

In the semi, she will face Medina Garrigues. Moni is the underdog for sure, but she came along well with this role in her matches against BMS and Jarka!

Good luck Moni!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

The match should be streamed at 13:30 CET, but the forecasts predicted a rainy day, so there could happen some delays...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Estoril, Semifinal:

Anabel Medina Garrigues def. Monica Niculescu 6:1 6:3

Horrible performance! She won the first point of the whole match and this was probably the only decent winner from her in the whole match. But 130 points in her pocker, Top 50 again and now a soft draw in the qualies of Madrid!

I hope she can make use of it and forget this bitter defeat!

She will play Ferrer Suarez which should be absolutely feasable!
Next up would be Kudryavtseva!

Good luck!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Madrid, Qualifying:

R1: (2)Monica Niculescu def. (WC)Ines Ferrer Suarez 6:4 6:4
R2: (2)Monica Niculescu def. (10)Alla Kudryavtseva 2:6 6:4 6:4

Against Kudryavtseva she was trailing 2-4 in the final set!

Nice fight which shows that she has definitely improved her mental game and attitude! That she has enough stamina for 4 hour matches was known, anyway.

And she could be really lucky about the draw, too because she got the first round match against another qualifier Chanelle Scheepers!

If she wins today, she will reach a new career high the week after Madrid!

Come on, Monica!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

WTA Madrid, Round 1:

(Q)Chanelle Scheepers def. (Q)Monica Niculescu 4-6, 6-3, 7-6

She was certainly very tired, but still so close!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I am very puzzled why Monica pulled out of the Italian Open qualifying. Anyone have any idea why?....

Oh and the career high is a great thing. I think the top 40 should be reachable in the next few weeks too.
