Amazed by the fucks she gave in the deciding set keeping in mind that she didn't look as if she gave a single one for the majority of the match.
Everything just seems so lazy. Her footwork, her strokes... Mess

I completely agree with your assessment and it became even more obvious in comparison to your classical South American claycourt digger that is personified by Cepede-Royg.

On the other hand I found it impressive how she was basically tanking all return games in the opening and second set as soon as she got the break. As long as her serve holds up it's nothing that I consider reprehensible, and in fact her serve held up nicely until 3-2 30-0 where she sent an easy forehand long and then the whole mess started.

Irina-Camelia is on the best way of becoming some lesser version of Kvitova. The casualty of her approach to the game, the lackadaisical footwork, the hot and cold ROS, her being an incredibly awful match player and still being able to somehow to bullshit herself to a three set win because luckily in most cases it's still her raw talent and superior game that bails her out of trouble.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Fun fact : Begu might be the 1st ever WTA player that gets a SE for a WTA tournament (Florianopolis) !


*If she wins tomorrow's match and if Piter loses to Zakopalova.



LE : She also made the Doubles SF a few minutes ago.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I'm glad for this win, no matter how ugly or lazy she played. She needed these wins in order to get some confidence back. And currently she's on a 5 matches winning streak, the longest since 2012 Tashkent.

Local girl Teliana Pereira next. Hai Irina!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Haven't seen Irina play all week, but somehow beating a seed, reaching the qf and winning 4 matches here already made me think she was getting some sort of form back. Couldn't have been more wrong

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!




P.S : Who was the guy in Green+ black for Begu ? Because A. Cruciat (her "official" coach) is in Romania.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Irina needs a shrink and a ROS.

Pereira actually looks like a decent player when she is facing someone who feeds her with enough pace so that doesn't have to create some on her own. Her consistency from the baseline in defense position is impressive to say the least.

What to say about Irina-Camelia? The good thing is that her serve seems to be back firing, she was losing this match on the returning end and on her own nerves. She dominated nearly every rally, but usually was the one throwing in the error, although she barely received any gifts.
I don't think there is any player on the tour hitting the ball with smaller average net clearance than she does.
