Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

So unlucky... highest seed of her section on paper, but with little real chances of qualifying

Do your best, Alex!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I have always thought Alexandra could do pretty well on grass. We have very little record about her game on this surface, especially because of her injury, but even back in the day she had good wins despite her lack of experience.

Crushing a player like that in your first official grass court match for 3 years is just outstanding.

She had a legitimate shot at being in the top 20 before injuries took over. It would be so nice to see her get back to at least some of that level of play. [antijinx]Seems like she's on her way back based on the past few weeks.[/antijinx]

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I think it's safe to presume she's still not entirely healthy, but even so, with the confidence boost after Marseille, she can still show that she's a hell of a player... on any surface

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

She'll meet Mel Oudin in the second round, who can be extremely dangerous on grass. Hope Alex will bring her A game because she's gonna need it

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I expect Alex to beat Oudin and whoever is next (Wozniak?) and make it to R1.

Great win Alex ! Oudin spent a lot of time on the court today, hopefully that'll help Alexandra

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

First, congrats to Alex on returning to Wimbledon for the first time in three years! Nastassja, a grass-phobic player, was a good first round draw.

She is 0-1 against Melanie, but that match was back in 2007, and on hardcourt. Also Melanie is very, very good on this surface. Still good luck to Alex
