I was so hoping I would wake up from sleep and see a result like this!

RG qualies loss ended up being a blessing in disguise.

Enjoy the win Alex because you surely deserve it

I really wish there was streaming for this

Any idea if she's going to play a grass court warm up event?

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I'm so happy for her, after everything she has been through. She didn't drop a set, fantastic play from her! Delighted!

Many dangerous players in that little section. I think she'll come through R1 though. Don't know about after that!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Not the easiest draw, that's for sure. Burnett made it to R3 in qualifying last year, and she's usually good on grass. I have faith that a healthy Alex can do well, though .
