Re: Andreea Mitu

That's life. All she had to do is to cut a little bit her errors, she couldn't.

Good luck further.

Re: Andreea Mitu

0-6 6-1 6-7(5). That last miss on a sitter on MP.

Really gutted for her. Even though she has only herself to blame as she vastly defeated herself, I really hoped she could pull the win somehow, as WTA MD R1 battle win would have been just great, regardless of the quality of the match, and a good confidence boost.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Piter trolling the crowd Really bad losss tbh, Piter is basically a more likeable Cohen. Kuddos to her for doing the most with the little she's got tho.

Romanians and final set TBs...

And I don't agree on the fact that she doesn't make Andreea move. She does.
That girl is missing shots a 10 year old wouldn't miss.

The point to get to MP in the TB was the first time in this deciding set that Piter was able to move Andreea. Everything else was just endless backhand cross-court rallies until Mitu would slap a winner or miss.

Not any player with a defensive gamestyle is playing clever tennis. If Piter is just moonballing the ball back it's because she has no clue what else to do, the same as Mitu has no clue what to do with the ball than to bash it as hard as possible. Both players are incredibly limited and that match was simply nightmare-inducing.

Re: Andreea Mitu

I can't remember how many times she missed like that last shot. Hits a good serve, then makes her way to the net and puts the killer shot in the net or outside the court. She has a good ballstriking technique, but I don't like her shot selection and her movement. I can see she can defend better on clay than on grass, at least I know it was the surface, not her technique. But she needs to improve her footwork. Mental I think she'll get better if she will continue to play WTA events. She lacks some basics, blame the coaches.

I know, thanks. I just don't think she's only moonballing without having a clue about anything.

She's has a limited game for sure, and is making the most of it, making it to the Top 100, a thing most players aren't able to do. That's smart enough for me. Obviously I'm not saying she's Aga-like or something.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Everything about this match - the crowd (I'll understand if next year this tournament will be held in Budapest, honestly), Mitu's brainfarts on important points, her incapacity to hold serve through the decisive set, Piter's grunts and soranesque behaviour between the points

Poor Andreea . especially looking at the interview on Digi sport now, she can barely talk, tears and is very marked by the loss. Said she had the same emotions as she had in the Radwanska match.

She won two this year. Actually one. The other one is from 2013.

The same think said Olaru too. They had emotion playing home with the crowd cheering for them.

I hope that this tournament will be held at least a few years in Bucharest. Is helpfull for romanian girls.

Hate to see that happen, but hopefully she can look on the positive side of the past few weeks after some time has passed
