Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

That close run against Sharapova must have made her believe she'll actually be doing well on HC on a permanent basis

Why not?
I mean, Miami was the last HC tournament before the clay season started, so we cannot say if it was a total fluke (caused by the very slow courts) or if she has finally found the key.

Many defensive players on the tour have their best results on hard, so why shouldn't she have some decent results, too. Her problems on that surface were her atrocious service, the lack of experience and the fact that she got very often overpowered by her opponents.

It's no coincidence that she decided to work with Urpi who has transformed Pennetta from a claycourter into a HC specialist. I hope she can surprise us!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Rankings update:

Singles #49
Doubles #48

Now, it even looks like she is a doubles specialist, somehow...

And most important, new Romanian #2!
I hope she enjoys the last week of her holidays training and preparement session!
By the way, she was not seen at the 100k ITF in Bucharest. What is this going to tell us?

But maybe that's also part of her plan to let her opponents on the US Hardcourts underestimate her, so that she can come from the behind and beat her rivals in insidious manner.

By the way, I had just a look at the Wahington MD...
Nearly all players there are in a slump! That would have been the perfect tournament for her to enter!
And even in Stanford we have some ridicolous first round encounters...

She better win some matches when she is back!

Yeah, but then it really has to be either a very bad one which I don't belive or think because then she would have had pulled out much earlier from the tournament and the Romanian sport press (which is crap, I know) would have at least reported a bit what is going on or anybody else would have picked something up...

If it's an injury I really hope she withdrew out of precaution because she has nothing to defend until the US Open...

Please, don't scare me!

I knew pairing up with Flavia's coach and practicing with her wasn't for good.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She's injured according this website - http://tennis.matchstat.com/AllInjuries/

But I'm afraid as Sucketta, that she is pregnant.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I've also read about the knee problems, but it only says "knee" and no precise injury...

But maybe we can look forward to some nice
