Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Watching now.

Alexandra leads 3*-2

Even though she is facing someone of limited capabilities, I have to say that she is playing a decent match. The length and depth of her forehand are impressive so far. Only problem is as usual her net game. She really knows when to go to the net, but her (drive) volleys are just mediocre and wrongly timed more often than not.

Yup, just smashed an easy sitter at the bottom of the net to give Kozlova a break point . Thankfully, recovered nicely and held serve for 4-2.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

More entertaining than Errani vs. Azarenka, to be honest.

Stunning lob from Kozlova after another volley failure from Alexandra that resulted in a netcord.

The pace of the court hides the fact that Alexandra is unable to generate any pace on her backhand, while Kozlova's forehand is useless. Some nice variety from the Ukrainian here and there, though.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

And then she comes up with this wonderful backhand drop volley.

Mess.

Stream quality is awesome.

I'm at work with the game on mute, so I forgot about the French announcers.

This reminds me of that Ab Fab episode with the girls on a plane to Paris. It's madame-moiselle

Master class in stiff-kneed volleys, those two.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Good performance apart from that blip in the middle of the second set.

Things are looking excellent for her to reach a career high ranking next week.
