Re: Bogdan Elena

67(6) 62 46

Sad, but not surprised by the outcome of this match. Losing to Moser is not that shocking when you think that Ema lost to Lancranjan 3 weeks ago. Moser could be a decent player in the future, while Lancranjan...

If Ema would have taken that first set.... But as always, she fell apart in the end...

Re: Bogdan Elena

Elena can seriously retire now. Her career has no purpose right now.

WTA draws really don't get easier than that (apart from that Azerbaijani girl having her 5 minutes of fame in Baku every year).

It's always nice making fun of sucky results when you just read the scorelines, but watching this mess myself, I really don't know where to start:

Tons of double faults, non existent return, a ground game that is consisting of moonballs Dominguez-Lino would be jealous of, no agression, no accuracy, nothing. And when she tries something, she was usually missing by miles.
Why do you keep moonballing if you can't even move well?

Making a 10k journeywoman who won 5 games to an unranked Italian 15 year old last week and got destroyed by Ioana Rosca early this year look like some serious shot maker.
It defies belief. What the actual fuck has happened to her?

Re: Bogdan Elena

I don't get it. Maybe just qualifying took everything she had. Fitness?

Re: Bogdan Elena

here it's my report about the match if you want to read: http://ski-and-tennis.blogspot.it/20...-2-review.html

honestly I wouldn't be too harsh on Elena, she played a decent match, but Moser was simply too good that day and had a lot of support by the crowd and extra motivation because of the situation.
What impressed me though is the quite awkward movements of hers, mostly because the way she's played this match, she looked like a defensive minded player, you can't afford it if your movements aren't as good as they should be. In the 3rd she got dropshotted to death and even if most of those drops were really high quality, a few mores were just too good for her rush

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
