Oh my , only one girl advanced in the next round. And she barely defeated Rezai of all people?
It wasn't a bad match at all, though, definitely one of Aravane's best during the past months and she only finished with 10 UEs more than winners, had 40 winners at the end of the 2nd set.
A much better match than their previous encounter from last year where Rezai was just beyond hideous, some of her winners were amazing, but Irina served pretty well when it mattered and was more consistent in the end.
Irina Begu a ramas cu picioarele pe pamant, chiar daca anul trecut a reusit sa ajunga pana pe numarul 38 mondial. Momentan pe pozitia 59 in clasamentul WTA, Irina spera sa repete performanta de anul trecut, cand a castigat titlul BCR Open Romania dupa ce a reusit sa o invinga pe Laura Pous-Tio, scor 6-3, 7-5. “Chiar daca am castigat anul trecut turneul, nu vreau sa joc cu o presiune suplimentara. Sunt fericita ca am sansa sa evoluez acasa si atunci cand joci cu placere, rezultatele vin cu siguranta - a punctat jucatoarea de 22 de ani. Eu si celelalte jucatoare de la noi am atacat clasamentul WTA si ma bucur de aceasta oportunitate. La turnee iesim tot timpul impreuna, imi place sa stau cu romance”. Camaraderia militara vine ca si turnata jucatoarelor noastre, crede Irina. “Imi place foarte mult noua campanie, conceptul ni se potriveste - a explicat Begu. Ma bucur ca sunt persoane care se implica si isi doresc sa ajute tenisul feminin romanesc. Ma atrage stilul military si modul in care noi suntem vazute in afara tarii, ca fiind armata romancelor care au luat cu asalt topul 100 WTA”.
Irina Begu remained grounded, even though last year managed to get up to number 38 worldwide. Currently ranked 59 in WTA rankings, Irene hopes to repeat last year's performance when he won the title after BCR Open Romania managed to beat Laura Pous-Tio, score 6-3, 7-5. "Even if I won the tournament last year, I do not want to play with additional pressure. I'm glad I have the chance to evolve home and play with pleasure when the results come with safety - the player has scored 22. I and other players in the WTA rankings we attacked and I am glad of this opportunity. Tournament always go out together, I like to hang out with romance. "Military camaraderie comes as jucatoarelor cast our thought Irina. "I love the new campaign concept suits us - Begu said. I'm glad there are people who get involved and want to help Romanian women's tennis. Military style attracts me and how we are seen abroad as the army stormed romancele the WTA top 100. "
Yeah, the Romanian amarda, someone lurked on TF, I guess.
