Romanian Monica Niculescu commented on her performance at the tournament in Shenzhen. “I arrived in Shenzhen beforehand. I had to celebrate Christmas on the plane, but it suits me. I did some training here and gained the necessary confidence. Honestly, I like to play in China. In 2011, I passed the qualification in Beijing and was supposed to play in Li Na. Especially for this we prepared a court in the big arena. However, I managed to win 6/4, 6/0. Then I liked to play in China. Local fans like my game, and I like their emotions, “the WTA press service quoted Niculescu as saying.
