Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Not at all impressed with Pavlyuchenkova, who is far from her best tennis but who doesn't need to play her best today to beat Begu.

Can't wait to see how Irina will perform in ITF 50K & 75K tournaments in the future. Probably just as good as Tamira Paszek is doing these days.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I actually think that Pavlyuchenkova is playing a really good match for her 2013 standards, but maybe I have just watched her worst matches so far this year (against Niculescu in Monterrey was an abosulte shitfest).

Irina-Camelia is still missing too many easy shots, especially from a winning position, but she is able to stay significantly longer in the rallies than a couple of weeks ago. It has to go step by step for her.

EDIT: Beautiful groundstrokes, but her net game is a disaster...

That's not the Polish flag, it's just a bright yellow that can be easily mistaken for white, and the blue bit is hard to see.

Lost 26 26, although in that second set Irina was far more competitive than in the first one. Still, a disappointing performance against a mediocre Pavlyuchenkova (even for her 2013 standards).

Maybe, but it wasn't Romanian either, because the position of colors is wrong.

Eu n-am cerut să fiu romān! Am avut noroc.

I was being sarcastic, of course it wasn't Romania's flag

Awww Irina Pavs is a very good player ofc, but she's so streaky.

I guess it's good that Irina won two matches here, so...

Will Saisai moonball her to death?

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I actually think she likes to rip off on those moonballs, see her match against Wozniacki.

Anyway, her drawing luck this year.
I can't even.

Oh yeah, true....and SaiSai plays exactly like Wozniacki apparently (even more defensive).

She probably will mess it up anyway.
