Re: Andreea Mitu

I can see Andreea doing very well on grass, she is playing a rather aggressive all court game with a good serve.

But I don't know how well she can move or how well she will be able to handle low bouncing balls.

Re: Andreea Mitu

"Sara Sorribes Tormo". The name alone sounds like that of a good tennis player.
I like another one, Alicia Tornado Black.

Re: Andreea Mitu

When I first read that last name I couldn't help but laugh.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Winning her first match ever on grass in such a fashion.

That surface as expected suits her well.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Nice win today

Sara Sorribes Tormo is a good up-and-coming claycourt specialist, but I pretty much doubt she will become an all around player, at least not in this part of her career. She pulled some upsets this year on clay (she beat top 300 players: Gojnea, Perrin, Gamiz, Kozlova, even the top 70 Annika Beck.), but I'm almost sure she wouldn't beat Majeric.

Re: Andreea Mitu

I never said Sorribes Tormo will beat Majeric, all I said was that although Nottingham is her first tournament on grass she seems to do well on this surface and could be a dangerous opponent for Andreea

Mada Gojnea ended her professional career after that loss with SST

Anyway, Andreea is gonna take on Majeric as she won today 61 57 60. Quite expeditive, but she needed a decisive there

I never said you said that I've watched a few games of Majeric - Sorribes Tormo and the Spaniard played as if the match was on clay

Re: Andreea Mitu

It was played indoors, though.

Re: Andreea Mitu

I know, but I wonder if that helped. She was 25 down when the rain started...

Re: Andreea Mitu

A couple of my pictures from this week at Nottingham....



I was quite impressed, she had lovely, smooth groundstrokes and served well with good placement and force.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Wimbledon, Qualifying draw:

(6)Sharon Fichman v Andreea Mitu
Maria Elena Camerin v Olga Savchuk
Yurika Sema v Maria Irigoyen
Raluca Olaru v (20)Julia Glushko


Brilliant draw IMO two weeks ago, however Fichman now actually starts winning matches on grass. Though I don't know how, to be honest.

EDIT: Dead at Fichman being #106 this week. And people are bashing Cohen...
