Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She uses those small ITF tournaments to reenter step by step in competition form. It's not a bad plan.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Yeah, and I don't criticize her for that, but who else woud have played a 50k tournament the week of Christmas somewhere in Turkey!

She is a fierce competitor and the fact she is currently only Romania's #5 ranking wise should be enough motivation for her to keep playing!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alex is only Romanian #5 behind Niculescu, Begu, Halep and Cirstea. But good for Romanian tennis!

To be honest I`m worried about Alex`s career. Hope it won`t go like Szavay and Cornet

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I wrote a pm and got an answer from a nice poster!

Quote:
Yes, i saw the last points before retirement. It was unpredictable as she moved well on court. Imo, as they lost 1st set with Alizé Lim, she preferred to stay stop. Cornet and Flipkens were also really surprised. Video here : http://www.fft.fr/actualites/tennis-...enain-en-video 0,28s You can see Alex when she decided to retire.
Knees heavily taped

So, only a measure of precaution? Whatever, how will she have any success at any tournament next year when she is only able to play such a light schedule without bothering her knees too much...

Like Gabi would say, she is reminding me of an old Dacia now!
