She will get her own thread if she wins R1 against Luksika Khumkhum.
Too much pressure on her it seems.

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Top 5 expectations for 2013

1. A glorious comeback for Alexandra Dulgheru after that awful injury.
2. Sorana Cirstea will (finally) break top 20 and why not top 10
3. First tournament won for Simona Halep
4. Monica Niculescu will continue to slay the brainless ballbashers for the enjoyment of her tennisforum haters
5. A new Romanian girls will break trough top 100

Nothing beats Begu losing to freaking Soler-Espinosa in the second round of US Open after having played the match of her career, especially the way she choked once again deserves an honourable mention.

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Sure, I do.

I always expect a Romanian tennis player to flop badly after a great win. Just look at my chart above proving my point.

So many beatdowns. Epic.
Lost to AMG, Kirilenko, Serena, Jankovic, even to CSN ar not surprises.
Only
3. S. Soler Espinosa def. I. Begu 6-4 7-6
5. V. Dolonts def. S. Halep 6-1 6-0

can be considered big disappointments.

And I told you before - beating Argentina don't make you favorite against, let's say Belgium at football.
