Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Alex double bageling someone, Irina winning a tight match, something isn't right... What's next, Simona hitting a winner ?

It's said that Polish clay can have some random supernatural and often unexplainable effects on Romanian Tennis Players.

I still don't get why they didn't give Dulgheru a wild card.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

This was a hot subject on other forums, apparently some Polish players who were promised wild cards didn't get them in the end, even though the WC were given only to Polish players + Karolina Pliskova, for the MD, and a Czech junior, for the QD.

But I don't think Alex asked for a WC.
If she really wanted to play Katowice she could have used her protected ranking.

Exactly.

And she better takes a SR for 'real clay' events, because I don't think this surface in Katowice wouldn't favour her at all.



And still I think she would have trashed Begu and Johansson with ease...

Alex D will play Katowice next year when it's upgraded to Premiere status. The Polish Empress doesn't bother with Internationals.

Will play Alex, who just took out #7 Lisicki.

Irina is 2-1 against her, including the last two matches, but this is their first meeting in 5 years.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Agree! Only Kvitova in the top half of the draw left, all the other seeded players lost in R32.
She's better!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

If she's serving like she did against Johansson, she's toast.

I'm serious. Anyway, great chance for either of them to storm to the semis at least, I will sit back and enjoy.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

The Duchess is the favorite imo because Irina never takes advantage of cake draws.

So it shall be.

lost from 4-1 up in final set, at least she choked to a Romanian player or what means choke, she got outworn.

Which pretty much sums up Irina-Camelia's main problem, her fitness. She has to improve that area of her game.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

We should be happy she went that far as she should have lost to Mathilde already if it wasn't for the French girl's brainfarts.

Irina-Camelia's level of fitness is just appaling at the moment. It seems that in every tournament she plays, she gets one win and then just fades away in her mext match.
