Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

Eva Birnerova - Laura-Ioana Andrei 6-3 6-3.

When I checked the livescore it was the 2nd set and she started well. Laura had bp(s) and all was balanced. She could not keep the rhythm apparently.

Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

I remembered watching Zacarias a year ago against Abanda in the finale of a junior tournament. I thought she looked so good, great consistency but also aggressive when necessary. Sad to see she hasn't made any progress.

Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

Juniors are so unpredictable. In her case, she still has plenty of time to snap out of it & start playing well again. Hopefully she does. Mexico could use some up-and-comers.

I remember her beating Rezai a couple of years ago making people $ happy.


I think being from a tennis development country like Mexico has a lot to do with this. I have also noticed that the geographical background for that matter is likely to decide who of two equally talented players will have the better career.

If you look for instance back at the junior world championships in Biathlon a couple of years ago you will find quite an amount of Romanian athletes in the Top 10, even on the podium. Needless to say that none of them was able to fulfil his/her potential. The training facilities are a catastrophe.

It's the time between juniors and seniors where this aspect plays a decisive role.

At least for sports like biathlon, skiing and ice skating you can blame the non-existent facilities for a good part of the year, but you'd think there are enough tennis courts around to support at least a few elite athletes. Somehow, though, we manage to limit their access to indoor courts in the winter to the point where even they struggle to train properly year round. Takes some talent & skill, really.

Re: Laura-Ioana Andrei!

Everything above 10k and even if it's a weak one in Mexico at the end of the year is sadly 2 maybe even 3 steps above Andrei's capabilities.
