Re: Andreea Mitu

50K Limoges (FRA), R16:

Tamira Paszek (AUT) d. Andreea Mitu (ROU) 16 63 76(9)

Losing a match after winning more points? Losing after making more aces and less DF than your opponent? Old news for Andreea. But somehow I expected more from her given Tamira's form and the way the first set unfolded. Should they play against each other again next week, perhaps Andreea would win comfortably in straight sets.

Re: Andreea Mitu

That scoreline is nightmare inducing.

It needs to be said. Andreea as well is a massive headcase who seems to fold under the slightest pressure being put on her.

Beating Fichman and Cabeza in QR1 - destroyed by Camerin and Vogt in QR2.
Brainfarting against Kan from being a set up in 50k SF. - destroying her easily the week after in 25k R1.

Hopeless.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Unfortunately, no big whopping to make up for the previous loss this time around.
Tamira Pasek (AUT) d. Andreea Mitu (ROU) 7-6(3) 6-7(2) 6-4

Andreea was up a break in the third set, but couldn't close it out

Re: Andreea Mitu

Sad, but not surprising.

Hope she has a good off-season and starts fresh in 2014.

She led 3-0 and 4-1 in the third set but I think her lack of belief cost her the victory because she was gesticulating like she was 3-0 and 4-1 down which was perplexing as she had the match in the palm of her hand and I was questioning Paszek's spirit as she seemed rather defeated at 3-0 down and ripe for the picking.

I can't remember the exact point of the match because I was chatting through most of the matches but Paszek produced an excellent off-balance BH DTL to save a BP in the third set and I think that was the pivotal point in deciding the outcome. The BH is still a sweetly timed shot but the rest of her game is very shaky. She couldn't get a FH over the net in the first three games, her service motion is still hitchy (she seemed to smooth out that quirk during her run at Wimbledon last year which was the last time I saw her play), her second serve is still , she doesn't hit that well on the run, even on the BH side when she's really stretched wide but she is looking very fit. Hopefully these three-set wins should instill some confidence which she still seems to lack. She was pumping herself up by shouting 'come on' but they seemed quite contrived. Even so, I prefer that attitude to Mitu's. Paszek yelled 'come on' after the win while Mitu chucked her racket on the ground and that pretty much summed up their temperaments.

Paszek did have a bit of a diva moment though. She got a rotten call and she dropped her racket on the ground, marched up to the umpire and demanded to see the supervisor, who duly arrived onto court a few minutes later. The chair umpire also told her off earlier for calling a let.
Oh, Andreea...

Begu approves.

What did Simona say in her interview. She just tries to take pleasure in playing tennis. It's so trivial, yet so essential if you want to stay motivated throughout the highs and lows of your careers. Many of her compatriots should take notice.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Moore withdrew so Andreea will play against Lucky Loser Katerina Kramperova (CZE) in the first round.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Paszek almost hit me with a serve during her practice in the morning

we joked a bit about that on twitter, but her match against Mitu was no joke...so much drama and tension, but the quality was really high! Both girls played very well, Mitu probably played even better, but somehow lost the plot when it was about closing and Tamira took advantage
















Not impressed


sarcastic with her coach


thinking: "that peasant better take this racket up and get me out of here fast"

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
