Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Got trashed by Zakopalova 1-6, 1-6. First serve percentage was still huge, but probably only because she went for the amount of first serves. As a hrad hitter she will have those off-days when nothing works out for her which is especially visible on faster surfaces, but nothing to worry about at first...

Tokyo is next, hoping for a good draw!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

WTA Tokyo, Main Draw:

[3] Azarenka v BYE
Begu v Q
Q v Zakapalova
[WC] Pliskova v [16] Peer


Great first round draw, as far as she doesn't meet Kerber , and the possibility of a great match against Romanians' nightmare Azarenka in R2. Should be enough motivation!

And a possible revenge against Zakopalova in third round

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Tokyo, R1: Begu def. (Q)Pliskova 1-6 6-3 6-4

Judging from the stats everything rose and fell with her serve which was completely off in that first set...

After that great serving from both players with Irina-Camelia toughing it out in her unusual 3 sets!

Azarenka will probably destroy her, but if her service works on this ultra fast service, she can be competitive!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

WTA Beijing, Main Draw:

[1] Wozniacki vs Hradecka
Medina Garrigues vs Gajdosova

Kanepi vs Zheng Saisai
Begu vs [14] Lisicki

Draw is rigged, anyway...

Good luck, though!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Had to retire against Lisicki after losing the first set by 2-6...

Pity, because she was able to break her twice, but couldn't hold once because of a right shoulder injury...

Get well soon!

OK, she has obviously decided to quit for this year!

Wish her a nice holiday and kick some butts in 2012!

Still, it was a great year and she came from miles out of the top 100 to #38

Irina is now on twitter, too!

http://twitter.com/#!/irina_begu

As you can easily see, most of the entries are still on Romanian, but let's hope that a stellar 2012 will maybe change that!
