Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Nu prea pare ceva de incurajare pt Simona. lol. Adica , totusi , ea a simtit`o un meci , Simona o stie din 3 meciuri in ultimele 3-4 luni )

Simona Halep

I didn`t want to be her fan, I just ... couldn't resist

Always remember you are unique. Just like everyone else

Nu ma mira. Citeste / urmareste numai declaratiile de pe site-ul asta. N-are rost sa incerci sa gasesti o explicatie logica pt tampeniile pe care le scriu mascaricii astia personal.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

"During warm-ups I basically couldn't play with my right hand and I thought about whether I should play or not. I decided to play; took an anti-inflammatory and I managed to play until the end. After the second set, I felt my hand was getting tired [wearing down]. I'm glad I managed to finish the match, for the spectators and for myself first of all. A match like this helps me remember I could get back to my old [ranking] spot," said Dulgheru a former 26th ranked player.

Asked about Simona Halep's chances of beating Sharapova, should both players reach the quarterfinals of the US Open, Dulgheru said "Every time I played against Sharapova, it felt like [playing against] a stone or a pillar. She's an incredible player, tough to beat because she fights until the end. She sometimes gives the impression that she cannot keep up anymore, but she stays with you neck and neck until the last breath. She's very persistent, even if she is tall and sometimes appears uncoordinated."

Simona is in much better shape than I am, she's better prepared physically, but I don't know if she could beat her. Halep is shorter and that comes across in their matches I've seen. She needs to cover more ground than Sharapova and in the end she gets tired, as well."

She was that good . Thank goodness that article was mostly quotes. Once they try to add their own comments, it's all downhill. Fast.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Additional quotes from this article http://sport.hotnews.ro/stiri-tenis-...-unde-fost.htm

The Romanian player stated she knows how to play against Maria Sharapova. "I know how to play against Sharapova, I know you need to be very well prepared and move really well; her ball comes in with good depth and it flat. Today I knew that if I got to a third set I wouldn't have enough energy but in the end the match was good overall and I am pleased taking into account my playing conditions. I haven't even practiced on Arthur Ashe and during the first few games I was a little out of it, I didn't judge distance well, but afterwards I started to adjust to the atmosphere and when you have [big] crowds and atmosphere it seems you manage to give your best effort," said Dulgheru.

Alexandra said she would take a break after the US Open. "I will take a two-week break now. I was scheduled to play in Asia, but I will not play the first two tournaments and would try to get better during these two weeks in order to play the next three [tournaments]."

She was also asked about Maria's grunting "I'm not particularly bothered by them. When you're focused during a match, they're not that audible [loud]. Sometimes she yells very loudly and you get the impression the ball is coming back with a lot of speed, but it lands short in the court. She doesn't hit as hard as she screams."

Love her. Hope her wrist gets better soon.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Top 50 next year when she stays injury-free, which seems to be as realistic at this point as Mitu stringing together 3 weeks of good tennis.

It would be a crying shame if she doesn't get back in top 30-50.
