Monica Niculescu is in a big day. Romanca is in one of the best series of his entire career, managing 6 consecutive wins, all on the grass. Due to these evolutions, next week, it will return to the top 100 players in the world.Before this tour, Niculescu, managed to win the Ilkley ITF competition, which also brought him the wild card for the All England Club.In the first round of Wimbledon, he managed a sensation comeback, from 0-1 to sets in front of Andreea Petkovic.

For Elise Mertens is only the third in Wimbledon. In 2017 she was defeated by Serena Williams in the first round, and last year she came to tour 3, where she lost to Dominika Cibulkova.The Belgian sportsman played pretty well this year on the grass. She managed to reach the quarterfinals in Mallorca, being defeated by Sofia Kenin, the winner of that tournament, and at Eastbourne she lost in eighth in front of Karoline Pliskova, who was forced into that competition.In the first round he had a more than easy match, losing only 2 games in front of the French sportsman Fiona Ferro.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Monica Niculescu vs Elise Mertens
Romanca has more than a difficult mission against the Belgian player who has defeated her in both disputes that have been disputed so far. Due to his non-conformist game, I think Niculescu will face some problems with Elisha on this surface, so I’m betting on + handicap games Niculescu.
