Good, you can watch it as it will be the 1st match played on CC tomorrow. Streams are available.

Me for my part, I will watch Warsaw-GOAT instead, playing at the same time on the minor court.

Showing some vintage form for this 64 60 win over Julia Goerges. Well done, Irina!

Wow, she's got some life left in her. What a pleasant surprise, to beat the Gorgeous like that.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

1st of all, nice trolling from the organizers to put the only two people with an umbrella in their hand right in front of the camera. I don't question the sense of taking an umbrella with you on a sunny day, it might be the Asian way of saving from the heat.

Secondly, Irina-Camelia played a smart match from what I saw. She went for her shots when possible (and getting them inside the lines for most part), but was also able to crumble in the defense just enough at times to make Goerges hit the famous one more shot.

I haven't seen her so well composed on serve for ages. When something distracted her, she would just wait and refocus just to not get rushed into another DF galore. And what do my eyes see? Only 2 DFs in the whole match. This is something she should keep in mind in future.

That said, there is no way this girl should be ranked outside the Top 100. Goerges' trainwreck of a backhand made it easy for her, but today it became obvious that her main weaknesses need to be fixed in the head and those are easier to solve than the one of Goerges' flawed technique.


Pity she is playing for Poland now.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

you gotta love her randomness...I know Goerges isn't a synonym of quality most of the time, but she lost to Carol Zhang few weeks ago and now bagels Julia

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I would have loved to have seen that Han-Begu match from R1.

Anyways, well done Irina for beating Julia, and keep going! I love her randomness.
