Please, as Adi said, we are over dramatizing.

Cepede clearly upped her game here. Shit happens.

Too common to be hilarious.
I reckon. And it's not only becoming visible in tennis.


Seconded. I will open a thread in the Romanian subforum afterwards with the biggest choke of the year - tough one.

We gotta' admit it - at least we're the best in the world at something.

At least Ralu had some decent results lately. Didn't happen in a long time.

Yes, but we have Hanescu and Tecau to make us proud on the ATP as well.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Epic choke

And now looking at the Romanians, I don't feel bad that we don't have many Greek tennis players, because we choke in every sport (it's really fucking ridiculous) so our tennis players would be just as bad. Even the shitty players we have in tennis are all epic chokers . Nothing compares to our long/triple jumpers and male gymnasts

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Well, it was only 2 MPs.

I mean, Irina-Camelia is choking away 2 MPs in every second match she is playing.

Yep, Romanians are also epic headcases, even in team sports where you should think the pressure is hold on more shoulders, but that performance from Steaua just a couple of days ago...

Mess.

No clue how to react under pressure.

Do you think so? Are you a Panathinaikos' fan ? Because Olympiakos won the 2012 Basket Euroleague final in the very last second after an epic comeback.
