Re: Bogdan Elena



Okay, either of two things:

1. Tereza's results has been suspect lately. Either she's carrying an injury or...

2. Elena decided to give a damn and play!

I'd like to think the latter! We'll see based on how she plays Toljan.

Re: Bogdan Elena

Ema was 24 down in the third but came back and won for her first back to back wins in 2013

Elena Bogdan (ROU) d. Janina Toljan (AUT) 36 63 75

Well done, Ema!

Will meet the other Bogdan tomorrow for a place on the main draw! Fingers crossed!

Re: Bogdan Elena

First consecutive wins since AUGUST 2012. I didn't realize it was that bad.

Battle of the Bogdans next. Elena has been far superior throughout their career but Ana has been a lot better this year (granted she's played mainly 10Ks). Should be interesting.

Re: Bogdan Elena

She shouldn't sruggle with Toljan. Probably Smitkova was injured or something yesterday.

Ana will routine her I fear.

I blame Simona for all this stuff. Its like a virus. Simo made everyone believe and play better and harder. I said it few weeks ago and its true. It happens in all countries when one player gets good and pushes the others up.

Yeah, she's been a mess. Not quite Chiara Scholl bad, but close.

Should be interesting.[/quote]I think Ana's been battling injuries throughout her career, sadly. She's for once been consistently healthy, but has had to regain her form. Hope that she stays healthy!

Also interesting that these two have never played each other. I guess I'll give Elena the edge, as she's higher ranked and actually seems to care

Re: Bogdan Elena

I took a look at ls hunter to see if tomorrow, I'll see Irina. But to my surprise, it looks like we'll see Elena vs Ana , like at around 11 o'clock Romanian local time.

Re: Bogdan Elena

Elena Bogdan (ROU) d. Ana Bogdan (ROU) 63 75

First WTA main draw ever. Ironically, in her darkest night as a professional tennis player.

Congrats, Ema! & good luck! Hope you draw Moser in first round

Re: Bogdan Elena

Interesting match some good strokes, and some funny hai vs haide. Gl in MD.
P.S. What do you mean by the darkest night of it as a professional?

It's a metaphor. Obviously, Ema is going through some ugly tennis moment in her career right now. Her 2013 record until Bad Gastein was 2-11 and I think no one trusted her that she can make it in the main draw. I mean you would have expected her to enter WTA events in 2011, when she was beating players like Erakovic, Bertens, Mayr-Achleitner or Torro-Flor, not now.

But it's better late than never and I must say I like the way she encouraged herself from the middle of the second set

Re: Bogdan Elena

You're right, better late than never. Maybe Simona's recent successes have touched her in to its own pride, and who knows.. maybe we'll see a change for the better.
