Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Wozniacki vs BYE
Hradecka vs Q
Q vs Muguruza
BYE vs Pavlyuchenkova

Lepchenko vs BYE
Erakovic vs Begu
Tatishvili vs Bertens
BYE vs Li

Li is injured, she already knows how to beat Woz - it's a miracle possible here ?

Li can be half-dead and still she'll destroy Begu.
Wozniacki to Begu: "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me!"

Have you followed WTA in the last 3-4 years? Li is the most inconsistent top player (yes, even more than Kvitova). In an off day (and those days are many in this period of year for Li) she has problem to win a set against BYE

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I have followed, actually.
Don't get me wrong, I also want Begu to win. Four years ago I was so infatuated with her, I could have swore she will be the next best thing, and I'm talking top 10 level. But she failed to deliver. And her results are only going from bad to worse. I am not even talking about matches with big players, I am talking about losses to the likes of King, Zhou, Panova, Dellacqua or Khromacheva. Big potential, smart and talented player, but weak mentality.
We'll just have to wait and see who of those 2 players will make it in the 3rd round. I put my money on the Chinese, no matter how inconsistent her game or results are.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Please, don't thing that I expect Irina to make a formidable tournament here. I've just wanted to say that the draw isn't so bad and if she plays at her potential she could make a nice impression here. I am aware that she can lose in the very first round against Lepcenko but I have all the reasons to dream nicely, no?

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

The Romanian girls have the tendency to perform below expectations whenever they get the opportunity of an "easy draw".
Begu beat Wozniacki in the 1st round at the US Open and was expected to win against Soler-Espinosa in the 2nd round. What did she do? That's right, not a thing.

Good luck to her versus Erakovic, she is her first opponent

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Marina is quite up and down despite winning her first title this year, so Irina could make it past her. Lepchenko is in bad form, so it's not too bad a draw for her imo.

Ofc, it depends on what Irina turns up on the day.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Irina has no points to defend, so she can only move up in the rankings. However, tellingly, she was bageled by Chanelle Scheepers last year, after winning the first set. As said above, Marina won her first title this year, so this could be a battle.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Can we install a rule for Romanian players to refuse to serve when serving for or serving to stay in a set?
