This. (The very thought of this happening makes me with joy)

And this.

I just pray Monica is healthy because this really is a dream draw. Gajdosova couldn't be a better 1st round opponent if she was hand picked and Monica has a good record against both Lisicki and Safarova, and she has the game to leave both these girls bamboozled.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Unfortunate news.

Sabine Lisicki has pulled out of the Paris Open. Her place in the draw has been take by the new 9th seed Angelique Kerber. While I quite fancied Monica's chances against Lisicki in her current form, Kerber looks to be a much more dangerous match up for Monica. I've seen enough of Kerber against both Monica and Agnieszka Radwanska for it to be clear she is quite happy to get into the kind of cat and mouse exchanges that Monica enjoys. Definately Kerber would be one of those girls who I would think of as a bad match up for Monica.

Very much hoping now that Lucie Safarova can take care of this new 9th seed and we can have repeat of that classic match Monica and Lucie played last year at the US Open. With the same result of course.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

When I read unfortunate news, I first thought Monica withdrew...

Well, first of all she has to get past Jarmila who is in atrocious form, but you never know when those bashers start picking up their form again...

Winning one round at a Premier event would be already a good achievement nontheless, step by step!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

As expected Monica got past Gajdosova.

Now, however, comes the much tougher challenge of Angelique Kerber. If Monica can beat Kerber that would be an awesome win. My expectations for that match are low but I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Yes, it was closer than expected, but knowing Jarka's mental stability Monica would have probably one 6-1 6-3 if she had taken one of those 3 consecutive BPs at the beginning of the second, but a win is a win and the Monica from the start of 2011 would have got broken at 5*-4 in the third set, no doubt about that!

Instead, Monica 2012 is hitting a subleme passing shot at 15-30 serving it out with 2 first serves!

No expectations against Kerber! Only to give her best!

Agree with that. When comparing Monica now to say a couple of years ago her game hasn't changed all that much. I think all the skills and abilities she has now she had two years ago. The difference is in the head. She is now able to sustain her level of play throughout a match whereas a couple of years ago she could play excellent sets but not so often excellent matches. Simply she is now able to sustain her focus much much better than in the past. Seems like a little thing but it makes such a difference.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Well, Monica lost the match, but she won the crowd over, and I think she even gained some fans in the forum. I think people are finally starting the see that Monica has something quite special. The view of almost everyone who saw that match was that it was highly entertainly and very well played by both girls.

Monica really played a super match and was playing fast court tennis all the way moving to the net at every opportunity. At times she played as well as I have ever seen her play. Even though Monica lost, a match like today's makes me so excited about what Monica can do over the course of the rest of the year.
