Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

French Open, Round 2:

Sorana Cîrstea def. (27)Alexandra Dulgheru 6:2 7:5

The wind queen is back!

Such nice serve stats in singles and doubles and back to shit again! It was very windy in Paris today which doesn't suit her game at all, but still...

On the other side, I'm very happy for Sorana to take advantage of that and now she has a good shot against Li to do even more!

Match stats:
http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/sc...10/2218ms.html

18/33

BP conversion sucks as always: 3/10

There was also one long break at the beginning of the first set, so I don't hope that there was something wrong with her...

Now get ready for the grass season which can't be worse than the one on clay, really...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

We all know Grass is the new Clay!

She won't play the week after RG, but at Hertogenbosch the week after she has to defend a semi...
and if she is likely to be unseed at Wimbledon she could probably go out in R1 there as well and further down the rankings.

At least it should prevent her from only entering the biggest tournaments in the second half of the year: She should really consider to play the ones like Baku, Tashkent, Dallas or Washington to get some easy points there as well as Acapulco, Pattaya or Kuala Lumpur at the beginning of the new year, just to get her ranking and confidence back!

And considering that she hasn't played that much matches, she should be pretty fit, too.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

The clay season has been more than disappointing

What's her schedule after Wimbledon?
I agree, she should play some of those little (clay) tournaments. Get some confidence and candy.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She has the week after RG off, then Hertogenbosch (unseeded ), 130 points to defend, and Wimbledon (unseeded ) 160 points to defend...

After that I guess she plays Budapest and Bad Gastein on clay like last year, but we should wait for a confirmation!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

considering that she had a terrible caly season i think she should play some MM tournaments on Harc court to get confident for USO

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Upset #10 seed Peng/Zheng in doubles together with Rybarikova...

Urpi's coaching works well...

Fun aside, that and her semi in Rome also in doubles show that it has apparently nothing to do with her abilities, though the double concurrence is of course not the same, but compared to last year, she made a huge step forward, so why can't she show that in singles, at least the service should be better...

But still an important win for her self-confidence!

Awesome!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

The week after Wimbledon she will play the event in Bastad instead of Budapest this year...

Really no clue why she changed events.

Now see her playing Palermo instead of Bad Gastein the week after and probably Baku instead of Tashkent.

EDIT: Probably because of Pennetta who is also coached by Urpi and plays Bastad and Palermo

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Bastad looks to have a strong field then After all world #1 will be there and a couple from top 20.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

WTA Hertogenbosch, Main Draw:

[7] R Vinci (ITA) vs. P Hercog (SLO)
A Dulgheru (ROU) vs. Qualifier
[WC] L Robson (GBR) vs. A Parra Santonja (ESP)
A Brianti (ITA) vs. [3] Y Wickmayer (BEL)

Great draw and badly needed!

She has to defend 130 points here!
