Re: Lux 1/2 Final: Niculescu d. An Absolute Mess (Hantuchova) 6-1 6-3

Obviously very disappointing from Dani's perspective. I'm not even too sad about the score or the outcome overall, it was just this lack of determination that was appaling. Dani didn't fight out there and that is what disturbs me the most, especially after she fought through all her matches this week. But maybe there was just not enough left in her. I really hope she can come back in 2013 and start with some decent results.

Niculescu did what she had to do. However, I'm sure sooner or later her style of play will take its toll, as it did with Dulgheru. Luxembourg has always been a Tournament I like and the list of the winners has been graced each year with players I like. I hope this doesn't change tomorrow, so I'm gonna root for Venus/Petko.

at people thinking that only Vika can take out that pathetic and annoying slicer player. The other top players aren't bothered by a MM like Luxembourg.

Thank you.

And not to mention there was so much more than just forehand slicing. That one forehand passing shot DTL. Who else can play one like that on the tour.

Monica constructed points from A to Z today and it payed off. Daniela was her usual careless self at times, but you also have to see that players like her need rhythm and Nics is playing so different to any other player at the moment. So different that it pissess off most people on teenis boards, so what do the players themselves think?

Anyway, points defended in style.

Fair comment, but even you cannot deny Monica could of been feeding dani balls and dani still would of hit them out...

Edit: I admit she played some awesome passing shots.

Re: Lux 1/2 Final: Niculescu d. An Absolute Mess (Hantuchova) 6-1 6-3

As soon as Dani missed two straight warm-up serves to end the warm--up I figured it would not be her day. She did not disappoint. Could not find the court. Oh well.

Niculescu was so steady, and Dani did not enjoy the lack of rhythm. Nice to see a previous finalist get back to the final, though.

I have always been quite cautious with my predictions. I did very early on in the year predict both Kerber and Errani would finish the years as the number 1 players of their countries and this was when they were both the 4th ranked players of their countries so....

Come on guys... Niculescu isn't the top player on tour. All the ladies so far were too brainless to handle that game. Finish.

Nice for Niculescu that she got healthy just in time to defend enough points for a top 100 spot.

Dani made a lot of errors yeah. But you need to ask yourself why was she making these errors that she wasn't making the previous couple of days. Tennis is always a game played by two people and the way each of those two plays is always directly related to the way their opponent is playing. Always.

Who is saying she is the top player on the tour? Of course she's not. But she has certainly been the best player in the bottom half of the Luxembourg draw this week, there is absolutely no escaping that.

No one said that Monica is a top player, at least not me. She has still too many major weankesses for that, but Oprandi for example is anything but a brainless basher and she breadsticked her as well.

Monica is the master in getting into other players' heads. I mean she is even getting into TF posters' heads. Hradecka even cried on court. And it's no coincidence that even the serving of Lucie and Daniela didn't work at all. They simply lost the plot after plan A didn't work out after the first few games and having played much more matches tis year already than Monica doesn't support the emotional will of fighting back either.

Yes she hit them because she has no Brain, or thats how I saw it, I mean there are four lines in the court you need to find, She did not even try to spin it in or take a bit off continued to bash, she then did not bend her knees in the 2nd set several times. If you are playing someone like monica you cannot bash them unless your Vika or Serena, Dani needs to think, and at the beginning of the 2nd she did that. She then brain farted again...
