Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Defeated Akgul 6-4 6-3

Funny, because the first set was so much better from her than the second. She started like she left after Caro with great serving and impeccable ground strokes (only 2! points lost in the first set on serve) playing much better than her opponent in all depertments of the game until she made things once again complicated for her at 4-3 in the 2nd set from 40-15 to saving 2 BPs, the first BPs for her opponent. Luckily Akgul is moving like a pregnant elephant at times, so that she was able to fought them down and break to win the match.

Cornet can be tough for a player like her, but Irina-Camelia has a shot when she stays focused.

Akgul can't return and moves badly so no way she was going to lose this

Only 1 game on own serve - Irina. And she starts the second set with another game on her service (the second one )

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

6-4 6-1

Good to see her winning for once when her serve isn't going that well. On the other hand Cornet's serve is always a mess. Couldn't hold serve once.

I hope Voskoboeva is winning her R2 match, so that Irina-Camelia won't feel as the fave to win in a possible QF.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Cornet always used to be a good match up for Romanians, nearly as good as the Swiss tennis players or Ammanmuradova.

I can only imagine the rallies in this match, but I'm happy Irina stayed focused, even if it made her staying on court a bit longer.

Irina has only 100p to defend for the rest of the year. 70p are already done!

She was ranked quite comfortably inside the Top 100 in the Race even before this tournament, so she should climb up the rankings again.

I guess we should take this year as a transitional tennis season after all the fuss last year, it's not surprising that she'd struggle to consolidate the results. Having shoulder problems and coaching problems throughout the preperation doesn't help either.

Bolanu is a good coach. I guess she will be found in the Top 50 soon again.
