Re: Alexandra Cadantu

It's just me or this match was too long for a two short sets?

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Start dates, Dubai 75k vs. 10k, all these minor details. Glad she got a win, though

There were many close games, especially in the first set.

I'm happy that she got the easy win and drew someone against whom she could practise her shots in a match before it really matters. Return of serve was dire and she missed many easy sitters, especially in the early stages of the match.

Got better from the baseline, though as the match went on. Highlight to me was when she hit one of her trademark 'drop shots' at 5-3 0-40 that dropped rather long. She already went back to her bench not even noticing (and believing) that Ce somehow hit it long.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Would have loved to watch this (instead of meaningless doubles matches placed on that court) as this scorelines looks like a complete domination against a kind of player that I wouldn't have expected. Alexandra has obviously shrugged of the rust and is now well prepared to reach her first WTA semifinal of the year.

Edit: Only 2 DFs compared to 3 aces. best serve stats since what feels like forever.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Quarterfinal versus Slava Shvedova, who wasn't great recently. But then again, until Florianopolis Alex wasn't great either these last couple of months. Hope she has what it takes though to make it into the semis. Hai Alex!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Surprised she entered Katowice which is now played on Indoor Hard instead of Bogota on clay, but then again she seems to love this event.

Also didn't enter Charleston this year.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

That's too bad, I like indoor clay events. But it's gonna be a great opportunity for Monica, who entered as well, to slay.
