Yeah, true. And most of her victories last year as well. When Monica gets on a roll it can be very hard to win games against her.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Won against Zvonareva 7-5 3-2 Ret.

2nd Top 10 win in her career and a great result after that devestating start to the year back to where she ended 2011. Unbelievably happy!
Gutted that this wasn't on Center Court, though, so I can't say anything about Monica's performance or Vera's injury...

Next round against Pennetta who is a horrible match-up for her or Kateryna Bondarenko who has always been a player she loved to play against. Obvious who I want to win there, but at that point I would rate Monica's chances to beat her currently a bit outsorted nemesis not too low to be honest.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

I am sad for Vera. I was hoping she was going to be fit enough to complete the match but oh well.

Still good to see Monica did what she needed to do to get the win.

As to Monica's next opponent yeah it is hard to know who one would rather she plays. On the one hand Monica beat Bondarenko very easily when they previously played. But on the other hand, even though Flavia killed Monica both times they previously played the difference in the current form between the two players is such that this could be a great opportunity for Monica to get some revenge. I really can't decide which player I want her to play honestly.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Kateryna Bondarenka it is. I don't want to get too excited but clearly this is a match Monica will go into as the favourite. Already this has been a decent tournament for Monica, but another one or two victories here and it could become another absolutely wonderful tournament for her.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

What a chance of a QF here.

Bondarenko is a good match up for her as well. Yeah, she beat Flavia comfortably, but the Italian is clearly out of form and served pretty week. I'm sure it won't be a good match, but I hope Monica can tough this one out.

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

dsanders

She has to beat Kataryna now to take revenge on Stosur, but the results here are so random. The only thing that stinks is that tomorrow's match will be 100% not televised...

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

She beat K. Bondarenko 7-6(5) 6-4

Came back from 2-5 in the 1st and broke in the second for the match! Great to see how she developped from one of the biggest chokers on tour to one of the toughest. You can really see how much confidence she is having right now!

QF against the winner of Stosur/Cetkovska! Haide!

Re: The Amazing and Remarkable Monica Niculescu

Lost 2-6 6-2 3-6, but what a great match and especially outstanding return game in that second set!

Monica seemed to have the momentum in the middle of the third, though, but Stosur was very clutch from there on and got herself back in an impressive manner!

Still, a good week, another well deserved QF and so many chances to get her ranking even higher on the upcoming big HC events. With her current game she is able to beat more than half of the current Top 20 player, taking into account that most of them are in poor form anyway.

I didn't watch the match but I think that it was very interesting. Now Monica is 29 WTA
