I remember that match, it came from nowhere. She was just a different player.

Surprisingly, I have to say. Riske is having the season of her career. But I won't complain

Keep going, Irina!

Relax, you had nothing to do with her being incredibly stupid

Being two points away from victory means nothing to Irina.

I know, but everytime I think she's about to win, she loses.

Such a disappointing loss. Ally is a good player, but still...

Final score: 62 67(2) 26.

I hear also saved 2 mps.

Irina's still having trouble stringing together wins

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

To be honest, I immediately expected a game-over for her career after that Schiavone TB, but she has been doing well at the end of the year.

Her TB record since then, however, puts anyone to shame, the emount of lost and prolonged TBs that is.

She beat Ula last year on her way to her maiden title in Tashkent, but she will most likely lose here. If by mistake she wins this one, Sloane will destroy her in 2nd round.

GL Irina in defending your last year points.
If she gets there she'll do fine against Sloane. I think.

I am not even sure what would have been a good draw for her.
