Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

Oh yes, she should definitely stop playing 10ks, I just think 25ks would be more appropriate. There is one next week in her beloved Turkey Can't blame her from staying in France and visiting Biarritz tho, it's a beautiful city

You have a valid point but not 100%. Andrei should play 25k and 50k but those young talented players should go for a win no matter who is in the draw.
And playing against a more experienced player is no harm for them.
Maybe I see things wrong.

You don't see things wrong, but I don't know what Laura benefits from always playing unexperienced young opponents in those 10ks. Like someone once said in this forum the field in those events it's always Andrei and a bunch of teenagers. She should take the step up. I see players ranked around 500 WTA who go out there and play qualies for WTA International events, Laura has been in top 300 for more than a year now and still she seems stuck in those 10ks. Well, I suppose that she feels more comfortable beeing seeded. The underdog contention is not for everybody, I agree.

Back to her performance this week...

(3)Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (SVK) d. Laura-Ioana Andrei (ROU) 62 60

Better luck next time, Laura!

Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

Judging by the results it appears that she knows her limits.

Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

She is not better than 10k level. The only reason she still plays is because she either loves the game that much or because she can afford it. I highly doubt her career is financially rewarding.
