Anyway, hope she enjoys her stay in NY, I'm pretty sure she'll be out of top 200 by the end of this year & perhaps next year she won't have the time to visit in her brief stay during qualifiers (if she's lucky enough to catch the qualifying draw).
She's ranked 128 in the Race so she can't possibly leave top 200 even if she loses all remaining matches.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I wasn't talking about the race, I was talking about the WTA Official Rankings. But you're right, I exaggerated: after her US Open, Tashkent & Linz points will wear out (in less than two months) she'll be ranked around 170 in the world with 360 points.

Folks she is not done, yet.
Maybe the things will click for her sometime, with the right changes.

She should win her first match.

Seriously? I doubt she'll pass Torro-Flor, that girl was solid against Aga in the first round of the USO.

Maybe , as she won the 2012 title she feels "obligated" to play some good tennis here although I kind of doubt it.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I think she might struggle with Panova, who seems to have recovered some form lately. Even if she gets past her, I see her going out to Tita.

Well said. Already lost once this year to Panova so I wouldn't be surprised at all if she repeats the performance tomorrow.

Thanks. I had forgotten she had that loss against Sasha in Pattaya, when she retired after losing the first set tiebreak...

If she doesn't get something going soon, her ranking is going to be so low.
