Romanian tennis player Monica Niculescu shared her impressions of her performance in the second round of the tournament in Miami.
Recall that last season, Romanian suffered an injury of the gastrocnemius muscle and left the Top-100 world classification.
“This is serious damage, so it was not easy to recover. I had stress fractures at one time, but I had not encountered such a trauma before and did not know how to behave. I could not move around the court. I really did not understand whether the injury was healing or No, because the pain did not go away. When I returned, having missed a lot of time, it seemed to me that I had forgotten how to play. At key moments of the matches it was especially difficult. I made mistakes and did not feel my game. However, over time, I began to feel more comfortable on the court. I always liked to perform in Miami, so I am glad that I can stay longer here, “the WTA press service quotes Niculescu as saying.
