Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

3 back to back DF, 5 overall in this last game. She needs to wake up real quick now!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

When I was talking about a thunderous comeback I obviously didn't intend her to start serving like Karatantcheva.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alex Not such a surprise she lost to a player who won a tournament last week

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

This is not an excuse. Cibulkova won Stanford two weeks ago and then lost in the first round in Carlsbad. And this is just one recent example out of many. Meeting a player who just won a tournament the way Rybarikova had (after long exhausting matches), who after winning that had to change locations so quickly, was supposed to be an advantage for Alex...

Pretty sure Rybarikova was dead tired today & she only won because Alex wasn't able to capitalize.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

the funniest thing is that Alex hit a better percentage of 1st serves in than 2nd she actually lost only 2 points when she could hit the 2nd serve in

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

At the end of the day, taking 7 games to an in-form Rybarikova is actually a good result. But it's the way she lost that is kinda worrying, already blowing opportunities left and right. And she's not even back in the top 200.

Oh well, keep going Alex !

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She and Irina-Camellia should swap ranking positions.

Win-win-situation at this point.
