I've noticed that they started relying on TV life feed in the streams they offer whenever possible. If a TV station for whatever reason decides to show something different for some reason, we watchers need to take what we get.
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
She didn't play differently against King. King just couldn't deal with her heavy top spin bombs probably playing her first clay court match this year, not being a claycourt specialist to begin with.
Pereira looked unimpressed, but then again Cadantu's 'play' earlier this week made her look completely local. Looks like a match-up story to me, although during her best days she would have played better on the key points. Her bashing on those MPs felt like resignation.
I was wondering as well, but according to the official WTA site, she is still coachless.
You rely too much on that WTA site . Halep was still "coached" by A. Marcu till this week according to the mighty WTA site.
Her official coach, as I said is Adrian Cruciat (and he was seen with her since last autumn) but he is in Romania now (comenteaza la Digi Sport ) , so the one in green was someone else. The voice sounded like A. Marcu's a little.
Won against BZS and Zakopalova in doubles and through to the final. Might wanna partner Olaru and become a doubles specialist too.
It's funny how failing miserably in singles almost instantly makes you a good candidate for a successful doubles career
Or at least so it seems to be the case with our girls (Raluca, Irina, Elena Bogdan)
Anyways, great result for Beguta up & good luck tomorrow!
Not really surprising. Her serve looks sharp again and even her volleys were surprisingly good all week. The thing that sucks most is obviously her footwork, but then again how goes the saying: 'You only need to rely on your feet if you can't finish the points quickly enough on your own.'
