Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Yeah, her double performances were actually superb so far!
And you are right! I completely forgot about the "Harry Potter" imitation video where she also seemed very happy!

This is another reason I really don't understand her decision. I mean just a 50% Alexandra would have chances to go far with such a draw at Bastad, but she just pulled out on! in her favourite part of the season! On clay! Just before her least favoured part of the season! Gifting easy points away!
At least she hasn't to defend anything up to the US Open then!

She nearly played most tournaments of the whole Top 100 last year and only 4!!! MMs so far this year (with Brisbane and Marbella which are actually the best Tier III of the year)!!

I've asked in the thread of Bastad if anybody has an official statement because I'm completely at the moment...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I still can't figure out how she reached the quarterfinals of Miami and almost the semifinals.

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She played at 100%, simple as that!

However, she just lost her way after that and I really don't know why. She obviously tries to focus on the HC series now, instead of playing some smaller tournaments on the beloved clay what is already surprising enough!

I hope it pays off because she has nothing to defend throughout the whole US Open series to the US Open. She is the athlete and actually knows best what is good for her at the moment and if she thinks she has taken the right decision we should support her and hope that the HC season may have some surprises for us!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

OK, I've watched some matches of the tournament favourites in Budapest and Bastad so far and what should I say?

Alexandra should be extremely gutted not to enter one of those events. After seeing some of those low level quality shitfests, I can hardly imagine that Alexandra could have done worse even in her crappy spring clay form...

But as I've already said, she as the athlete knows best what to do and I have full confidence in her and hope for a strong comeback on the US Open series!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

she should have playing Bastad with Caro out and all the other "bigs" sucking so hard she would have won hands down

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Please come back soon! I miss you and your mental GOATness in WTA finals

By the way, the official statement for not playing Bastad was knee problems...

But playing the very important mixed doubles tournament in Wimbledon before and having fun, laughing and imitating Harry Potter. Must be a severe injury!

I still think that she only contemplated to eneter Bastad if she had lost first round Wimbledon. By the way, last year she also retired from a few tournaments with the same problem, but in contrast to this year, she played a lot...
But fun aside, the knees really seem to be a weakness of hers and she often plays with them taped...

But to be optimist, I think she could cruise through the indoor season when the other players are already exhausted (hopefully )

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

probably she's a beach girl
or Urpi is teaching her how to turn in a hard GOAT during the summer like he did with Flavia in last 3 years

... or maybe partying with Radwanskas
