Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Bogota - Acapulco - Budapest - Bad Gastein - Bucharest 100k

That's what counts!

Why not RG? With a good draw she could win the first round.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

All the fuss for one game, oh dear...

We should be honest, Alexandra simply isn't slam material off the clay, but in view of RG, she can climb the rankings up a bit! She will play Bogota, maybe Cali as well...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

ITF $100,000 Cali, Main Draw:

(8)Alexandra Cadantu (ROU) v Q/LL
Petra Rampre (SLO) v (wc)Karen Castiblanco (COL)
Q/LL v Q/LL
(2)Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU) v Sharon Fichman (CAN)

All Alex in the quarterfinal?

However, happy to see her back on the dirt and I hope she won't go back to hard that soon...

Agree. While the top 5 Romanians all grew up clay, and clay remains the best surface for all of them, aside of course from Monica, with Alex D, Sorana, Simona and Irina there is no question there is the feeling that they will all develop into players that can be effective on all surfaces during their careers. Monica and Sorana already are pretty decent players whatever the surface and Alex is getting there too. Irina is has further to go before establishing herself as a player for all surfaces but she also has the potential to do so. And Simona is already fine on hardcourts but still needs to improve indoors and on grass.

In contrast, Alex C strikes me as an out and out clay courter and this is probably what she will remain and as such it is probably for the best that she sticks to the red stuff as much as is feasible.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

However, she beat Barthel on indoor hard last year in Luxembourg and I have no freaking f*cking clue how she did that

True. That was definately her best result of the year and one of the most surprising, even baffling, results by anyone over the course of the year. I have no idea how she did it either. Maybe we are underestimating her and she should be playing Midland and then Memphis right now and kicking some indoor ass.

After losing sets to Klepac and even Jurak the Q-rounds before!

But I guess it was more Mona completely losing her head. They have already played one match before at Wimbledon QR1 and Alex was able to win 9 games without having ever played on grass before as far as I can think back!
