Did you know that in 10K tournaments, the tennis players have to prepare the court after they finish playing so that the next players can have the perfect conditions to play?

I was at a 25K last year and didnt know what to expect when it came to ball kids and line judges. They only have 1 line judge for each line, so they had the side of the court they were on and also had to judge the line on the other side of the court

There were so many complaints from players

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

It was supposed to be 4-1 now, not 3-2

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

7-5 7-5

Dream semifinal against Irina-Camelia. Hard to predict a winner & I have no idea who to root for, but I think I'd be equally happy for both of them.

One Romanian in the finals . Alex wasn't making things easy for herself, but I'm glad she pulled out a win.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I am concerned with Alexandra retiring so often. It looks like she lacks endurance to play a few matches in a row.

Exactly what I was thinking. It really is concerning

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Well, I don't know why she retired today. I watched the last 4 out of 5 games and she seemed fine physically. Irina played great tennis, maybe she knew Alex wasn't herself today and this worked for her confidence level. I know there were only 4 games and you cannot really judge correctly based on such an arbitrary sample, but she seemed to be back. As for Alex, it looks like her health problems still rule her career

It rather looks to me as if her body doesn't allow her more which is even more concerning.

Endurance has never been her problem before the knees, nor did she have a history of so many retirements.

In the last year alone, the knnes, the wrist, now the back, even her toe was forcing her to retire in Palermo.
