Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Really nice comeback from Alex I just saw a small part of the match but from what I saw, it was nice tennis from both players.

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

You saw it!

Just one question! Has Alex really improved her serve in sets 2 and 3 or has Polona declined a lot on the return?

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

R2: Alexandra d. Klara Zakopalova 63 62

QF against Vera Zvonareva. Vera struggled today against Voskoboeva, Alexandra definitely has a chance.

It's scheduled to be on the main court, so there should be a stream

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Some GOAT return stats today!!

Klara couldn't hold her serve once in the entire match!

79% on Klara's first serve
68% on her second serve

But her own service back to mediocrity with 2 DFs and broken in 5 out of 9 service games...

Good luck for tomorrow!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alexandra winning matches again!

Premier QF is a nice result. And Zvonareva is not unbeatable.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I think Alex has a good shot at Vera here but whatever happens tomorrow the good thing is that Alex has finally got her game back into decent working order.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Brussels, QF: (2)Vera Zvonereva def. (7)Alexandra Dulgheru 6-1, 6-0

Just when I thought things would get better...

This was a very, very bad performance today. No need to deny it. After having broken Klara yesterday in all of her service games, she only scored one single point on Vera's serve today...

I don't know where this comes from and can hardly believe that she has played like that the whole week, considering that she had probably the worst draw of all seeded players...

Too many easy erors and unfocused actions and a lack of fighting spirit as if she was frugal with reaching the quarters and didn't seem to see much reason in fighting today against the #3 of the world who would have beaten her anyway.

Vera probably showed her best performance on the clay for a long time, indeed, but still it was very disappointing to see so much easy errors from her racket. Let's hope that this loss won't wear her down too much, but seeing that she didn't seem to be interested in that match, I would say no. She was rather happy to beat Hercog and Zakopalova, but that's not the way you can win against Top 10 players with such a loosy attitude...

Let's hope for a good draw at RG, so that she can defend her points from last year and hopefully not Vera in her section...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Vera played well no question. But one of the things I most like about Alex is her fighting spirit and her professionalism. When she loses but it is clear she gave it her best I'm cool with that. But even though Vera almost certainly wasn't going to be beaten the way she was playing today that is just no excuse not to try and to fight. And seeing such a lackluster performance from Alex really disappointed me. I'm not bother that Alex lost and she will lose a few hundred ranking points. That's not a big deal. She can make those up somewhere along the line. But the manner of this defeat was very disheartening. I thought Alex had more pride in herself. I hope and expect much better from her at Roland Garros but that loss really does leave a bitter taste.
