Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Final score, 57 64 36.

That was always going to be a tough match.

Yet she's been in Bogota for the last couple of days. I believe she received a wild card, just like in Cali.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Or she used her SR.

It would make perfectly sense to use it here, because the tournament, although having its best entry list ever, is still very random and she might easily win a round or two.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

True that.

Anyway, I trust her to do the right thing. She has now nothing to defend anymore for the next 10 months, so she can only climb up the rankings from now on and should decide when it's best for her.

By the way, then we can also say she didn't use it for Acapulco either?

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alexandra uses her first two SE's in Indian Wells and Miami - smart choices if you ask me. Why? Because in the first round she will draw a girl outside top 32 (even 35) and many of those girls are beatable for 50 points.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

i don't think it's a good choice should have used them for bogotà and acapulco, clay it's her surface not hard, for me it's just a complete waste..

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Her best result outside Warsaw was in Miami, so why not!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I agree with Francesco here. Using it for that joke field of Bogota at least when playing in Cali the week before wouldn't have done her any harm.
She was the only girl to took a set of Lara on her way to the title.

On the other hand, she has done very well in Miami before. But how far her game is on hard court? I don't know...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

But, Premier 5 means more money; 5 points for first round and there are many girls in such a bad form which can be drawn against (once again - the first 32 have bye in first round)

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Yeah, I definitely see your point Gabi.
You won't draw a Top 32 player in the first round, but I'm wondering if she is far enough to compete with a Top 100 player on hard at the moment. If I had to use my SRs for mendatory tournaments, Miami and Indian Wells would have been my choice as well.

Let's see how this turns out. We will know more in a couple of weeks.
