Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Another epic win from Alexandra 6-2; 5-7; 6-4. Could it be finished in 2 (Alex was 4-3 and 5-4 with a break in front in second set) or with the short 3 set (Alex has 4-1 with serve) but she wouldn't be our dearest Alexandra Cadantu if she did finish it quickly.

Now she is for the first time on the WTA tournament main draw (no, it's not a clay tournament ) and a win away from top 100 (with a little bit of luck she can do it )

FQR: (8)Alexandra Cadantu def. (4)Mona Barthel 6-2 6-7 6-4
#isthisreallife

Nevermind, party time!!



OK, just to help my brain realizing:

-2nd Top 100 win, highest win ranking wise
-First WTA main draw on indoor hard
-Top 100 super close now


Of course the cameras weren't on at time, so that I had to rely on scoreboard watching:

Set 1:
Alexandra serving GOAT Cadantu only losing 4 points on her own serve, only 4 points?
And this after losing the first sets against Jurak and Klepac!

Set 2:
A mixture between holding and being broken to 0 with Alex finally serving for the match at 6-5, DFing twice (probably on underarm ) and broken to love. Then, a MTO, probably from Alex to get some time and break Mona's rhythm.
Mona hold to 0, though and i expected the worse...

Set 3:
Like in Set 1, Alex with a fast 4-1 lead, but then her usual choke to not leave the court too early and gain some more experience!
At 4-4 Mona served for an epic game where Alex at first squandered 4 BPs, but also saved 2 further GPs and finally broke...
Then, she served for the match, DFed again, but was unbelievably able to take her first MP to win it all!

This match must have been so epic! Damn cameras!

And now draw Yakimova or Minella!

R1 against Yakimova. Not the worst option!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Yakimova is nr 61 WTA but she has only 3 victories over top 100 this year (one of them by retiring). How could it be possible?
