Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!
I still think she is hampered. Why should she call the trainer, retire and pull out of so many tournaments. It doesn't need to be visible every time.
When she was playing Radwanska at the AO early this year, the commentator of the match (on German ES) said he had a longer talk with her and her coach in which she said that she is struggling with shoulder problems for quite some time now. Even in the off-season she couldn't train the way she wanted.The problem is that she is actually playing the right shot for most of the time, but just completely fails to execute.
It's no mindless erroring, it's the erroring of someone who has no self-confidence and coherence in her game. It's raw and lacks nuances.
Her 2012 season was basically a flop as well apart from the last 2 months. She got straight setted by Chiara Scholl here last year, just saying. The high altitude coupled with her instability on the serve = mess.
