Ruining a cakewalk draw?

I really didn't see this one coming.

Should use that crystal ball more often . And to think I actually got my hopes up after she played well to beat Goerges in Seoul. Oy.

It just proves how easy Goerges is to beat now...Irina is in horrendous form.

Slava Shvedova took out SaiSai today, but not without a struggle...

She *seemed* to be playing well, though. For the first time in months, she was composed and not rushing, not trying to win points too quickly, none of that. A few times she even had really well-constructed points where she inched her way forward and finished Julia off. For that one night she magically remembered she was newcomer of the year two years back and could play with the big girls. And now, we're back to pumpkin stage

Yeah, exactly this.

It's just awful to see her losing like this...

With a game as big as Irina-Camelia's you are bound to have a good event or at least a good match once in a while, but it's not more than a flash in the pan right now.

It's a disaster to see her ranked where she is right now. She could be Top 30, she obviously knows it herself and that knowledge is increasing her frustration even more to a point that nothing is going anymore.

Let's hope she will stay injury-free in the off-season and get a good coach. She needs some loyal support right now.

Agreed. Her potential was never up for debate. It would be nice to see her living up to it -or at least part of it. Not sure if getting a full-time coach is doable (financially) right now. Hopefully, she could get one for the off-season at least. Starting 2014 on a positive note would be a plus.

Try and work with me here; it's been a rough night with Halep's game . Plus, this is only the second time she made it to the semis of a tournament this year -first one was the 'S-Hertogenbosch win with Medina Garrigues.

Singles is the priority but she can't seem to wake up . F*ck doubles for now.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Irina is in the MD for Linz

So, just in theory, she has a chance to defend her last year semifinal points
