Re: Linz 1st round : VIP Ana Ivanovic d. Monica Niculescu 7-5, 6-3
Monica is still heavily hampered. Playing for the money after her injury, can't serve (which is nothing new), but can't hit her forehand double handed, doesn't even bother to talk to her coach like she usually does. No clue if he even accompanied her.
I don't even know how this one got remotely close, probably because Ana wasn't much better than in Beijing.
I hope Monica can fully recover during the off-season and come back stronger next year. She always did so far in her career.
