Elena in Marbella


But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Bogdan Elena

WTA Marbella, 2nd Qualifying Round:

(2)Nina Bratchikova def. Elena Bogdan 1:6 6:4 6:0

She wanted to copy Ralu from yesterday...
Still too inconsistent, but Bratchikova was #2 seed, so we will see...

Re: Bogdan Elena

WTA Estoril, Qualifying Round 1:

Sesil Karantcheva def. Elena Bogdan 6:3 7:6(1)

Served for the match in second set...

Quote:
From 3-2 in the second to the end.

Bogdan is a lefty shotmaker with a good serve and plenty of firepower from the baseline. Her FH DTL was doing a lot of damage, and she was willing to move forward to finish off points at the net with drive volleys - and she can also pull off superb BH dropshots.

Sesil's serve is at Camille Pin levels right now, and the only thing she can do with her FH is to loop it as deep as she can (i.e. not much) and wait for the best. Her BH remains sublime though; as HenryMag noticed, she has superb control on it even when hitting it late and out of balance. Bogdan was pounding Sesil's FH side, and in most rallies Sesil was hanging by a thread. She was being completely overpowered while serving at 4-4, but held mostly due to Bogdan being dismal on ROS. Eventually Bogdan earned the chance to serve for the set at 5-6*, but choked horribly, and then went for too much on every single point in the TB, handing Sesil the win on a silver platter.

Re: Bogdan Elena

I would love it if Elena can qualify. Sabine Lisicki is one of the most popular and highly regarded players in the forum and it would not be a popular victory but it would delight me. I have thought for some time Lisicki is, shall we say, regarded somewhat more highly than her results justify and I think Elena the way she is playing has the ability to burst the bubble just as Sloane Stevens did last week and Mandy Minella the week before. Lisicki is one of the better player ranked outside the top 100 but she is a long way from being unbeatable and if Elena can play her best she could surprise a lot of people.
