Rewatching parts of it, I'm actually convinced to say that her ground game has improved tons from when I saw her the first time on the WTA. Her forehand DTL is a stunning shot, the rest of her game pretty much ok, movement decent, net game surprisingly solid (for WTA standards), nice reflexes and anticipation.

But her serve became a total mess and her game is moody and inconsistent because she is always playing with her emotions on her sleeves.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I guess there is a correlation between her retirements and the rising amount of DFs that she has produced since the middle of last year.

I guess it was the same thigh injury that was already bothering her in Oreias this week. She could barely move and I have seen her with a taped thigh on a couple of occasions last year already.

Thinking back, I can remember that when Dulgheru's knee problems got serious, she as well was starting to DF like crazy. Playing a good serve is demanding for the whole body and not only for the shoulder area. Moreover, injuries are usually sucker of self-confidence and one of the reason the DFs seem to come up the tighter you get or the closer the score is. But maybe I'm just reading too much into it, looking for an explanation for something which can't be explained by logic.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Alexandra had to pull out of Rome with the left hip injury that is bothering her since Oreias.

Pretty much explains why her service motion has become such a disaster.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She's scheduled to play Strasbourg next week.

Entered Roland Garros Doubles with P. ORMAECHEA , but slim chances to make the draw : Doubles Entry List (FINAL)


Good luck !

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Well good luck!!


As a sidenote, we see her so much lately upset, injured and crying on court... it's nice to see she's actually happy and having fun off court. good for her
