Fantastic week for her already, many ITF titles and she is still so young.

And a WTA title
I love her no matter what, but I'd love to see some results.
She still has time and I know for sure that she'll keep improving her game.
So keep going, girl!

This is a terrible loss and a terrible week for Irina who had a golden opportunity to reach the SF but I'm not even mad.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

She is so negative on court, I really wonder how she saved 3 MPs the round before.

I think after getting awarded newcomer of the year, she kind of expected to rock up the rankings, but it's unfortunately mot that easy.

Her attitude is the weakest of Top 100 - Blegu like.

Don't know what to say anymore about Irina's losses anymore .....she has too much potential for me to stop supporting her though, I'm hoping she can get her act together soon!

Irina withdrew from Marrakesh.
Sad, but not surprised.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

As I said, it wasn't a choke against Alexandra C in Katowice, she was just finished. She couldn't even go anymore through her (weird) service routine during that last game. The shoulder again, I'm pretty sure of that.
Pretty sure she would have lost to Peer in the QF then.

However, I mean, lock at that girl. Constantly injured and not even that consistent game wise and still ranked in the Top 50.
That just shows how much natural talent she has, because sure it's nothing else that is holding her in that ranking position.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I also blame her poor results after Tashkent on the shoulder injury.

Agree she has huge talent and potential, but in order to materialize that potential she needs to be in good health. So maybe pulling out of Marrakesh is not a bad decision, but the wiser thing for her to do right now. Dulgheru and Gojnea neglected their health problems and when they couldn't ignore them anymore, they went off the tour for ages. Hope this won't be the case here, but I don't know how bad her problem is. From what I understand shoulder surgery (see Sharapova) is one of the most difficult to recover in tennis. Once again, hope this isn't the case, but whatever it is she first needs to take care of it now.

Disappointed she withdrew. Hoping she gets better soon.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Withdrew from Oeiras as well and I start wondering how she is winning matches at all in this state.

I hope it's more or less precautionary.
Get well soon!

Irina will play 100K Prague next week. I hope she's ready, there will be quite an impressive field in Prague this year.

Good luck, sweetheart!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Prague usually has a very good field, but a healthy Irina-camellia is strong enough to win these ITF 100k tournaments. I hope she really is.

Entered WTA s'Hertogenbosch on grass.
