I pick the first one.
That Dallas match against Dellacqua was really something else. 12 DFs in under an hour play, epic shitfest. Probably the worst match by any Top 100 player in the history of the sport.

I'm also tempted to say the first one, but on the other hand even if she beat Aga, I would already call it a success if she would get close to having any MPs against Pervak.

Having a taped shoulder again - NID.

Seriously, I would really like to see what they are doing during off-season.

Break festival coming up.

This is going to be pretty ugly.

Well, at least our Romanian girls don't give us false hopes these days, either win or get destroyed.

Wow! Some spectacular shots from Irina. Why can't she play like that the whole time?

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Irina-Camelia is basically a mess.

If Sorana is hitting 25 UEs in one set, you know she just smacked everything. Irina-Camelia refined the arts of being an unforced error mashine, despite not being brainless at all.

What I want to say is that most of her errors just result out of poor execution and sluggish play. She still mixes it up nicely and her game plan is there as well, but the final result is disastrous.

Yes, and it bothered her basically the whole first half of the year.

Irina cocked up an easy sitter that would have gotten her a ad-in point.

Tough.

36 36.

BARBIE

3-6 3-6

Let's say it like that.

Sorana's form is changing from match to match.
Irina-camelia's from point to point.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Sounds like the Barthel syndrome. A proper coach would fix that.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

She is now with Gabriel Moraru, 30 years old. He just retired from pro tennis this year after getting a wildcard for the ATP tournament in Bucharest and will try to establish himself as a coach now.
I hope this experiment won't fail.

Yep, as I already said, there are so many similarities between her and Barthel, I'm surprised no one mentioned them before.
