Against Wozzo on the big stage, she was clutch till the end, because she was able to focus fully on the match for once, against lower ranked players however, she tends to get impatient to a level that it's overcooking with her and her emotions and as a result of that, she won't find the court anytime soon afterwards.
Yeah, that's it I guess.

I just remembered that must be the only time Irina hasn't choked and played at an extremely high level until the end! Yeah, I agree, she's just too impatient at times...

Is it me or do a lot of the Romanian girls seem to choke quite a bit...? They are all talented but seem to lack focus at times..

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

^ Thanks for the list, it's really quite scary tbh! That match with Schiavone in s'Hertogenbosch was hilarious. 6 MPs in the tiebreak.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

This time she has a strong alibi not like the few weeks off after Tashkent.
This Khromacheva match was like 8th match in 9 days plus moving from Linz to Luxembourg.

Btw the Begulescu doubles is back.
A tough draw. http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...12/300/MDD.pdf

Won 61 60 over Oprandi (who is definitely not going to spend her vacations in Romania) and Paszek. Those bitches, I swear, they should have played the entire season together !
