So Irina and Simona are rotating otherwise as well?

No, I'm from Cluj but living in Bucharest nowadays. Yes, Ilie Cojan is his name. I'm a good friend of Ema's cousin, Camelia.

I don't know it that's a fact, it was just a rumor. As far as I know the Rome tournament broadcasters presented Mlendea as Simona's coach.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Uncurv, if I may, I have a question for you. If they rotate coaches and their coaches are also their boyfriends, does that mean that they rotate boyfriends as well?

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I have no idea

I'd say no, because I think that the "rotating coaches" are just rumors. I don't even understand what rotating means, to be honest. Does Halep gets Mlendea for 2 weeks to coach her, then Mlendea goes and trains Begu for 2 weeks, while Halep is trained by another coach, the same one who trained Begu for the last 2 weeks? And so on and so on? Because, excuse me, that's just crazy and stupid bullshit.

Or does it mean that both of these girls tried for a period of time to get some coaching from the same two guys? Because that's not rotating, it's just experimenting. And it's more likely and it's not as outrageous as the first version

Besides, I should've been more specific when talking about girls trained by their boyfriends and not bring Halep in this discussion. I was only talking about Sorana, Begu and Cadantu.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

From what I read Moraru is Begu's coach. No rotation.
I find not appropriate the gossips about a coach being also boyfriend.
Without a certain info is risky to write such a thing on a public forum.
Just my 2 cents.
Btw Dron as a coach will not have such an issue.

HALEP
DULGHERU----- Cetkovska Voegele Paszek Hampton
NICULESCU--- Olaru Dinu Ana Bogdan---Bates Feldenkrais Schneider

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

About the gossiping, I've only come to that through to this board, but it has to be said that such a heavy emotional reaction like Sorana towards Victor Ionita in Marrakesh are usually only happening (from what I've seen so far) if there is really a very close relationship between player and coach.

That in bold is a good news and it's exactly what I thought.

As for the rest of your comment, I agree with you. But you cannot deny that many times players and coaches also have emotional relationships with eachother. Sometimes these affairs are public (Spirlea married her coach after retiring from professional tennis), but most of the times they are not public.
Should we ignore these details and let these people live their lives? Definitely.
Should we discuss if sometimes tensions between them affect the player's tennis performance? I don't see why not. It's not like we are giving this people life sentences

Dron is such a bad coach and such a bad tennis specialist (everytime he's commenting on some match I watch I just turn off the volume to enjoy the show), that he must be a great lover just to compensate (This is a JOKE, for all of you out there who might actually think I meant this)

Lepchenko/Zheng def. Begu/Rybarikova 3-6 7-6(9) 6-3

She can make matches as close again to get into a position to choke. She is back, I guess.

Shoulderina out of her home town tournament. Wise decision, but that injury is becoming worrying.

The Entry List of the tournament is becoming a bigger joke every day. Simona to capitalize, please.
