She'll get Begu or Wozniak no doubt

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I am also happy for her to draw a qualifier just to get an idea about her current state of form. This might sound odd given that she is on a 5 match losing streak since Kattowice, but none of these losses were surprising or shocking.

In fact, during this stratch she has taken two sets against players ranked inside the Top 20 and not only by luck but by completely outplaying them from the baseline in a way that I haven't seen her compete even in her good 2013. If anything, this slump just proves that she is the terrible match player that I have always assumed and that those DFs on key points in particular completely kill her confidence.

Still, there are a couple of qualifiers that I can't see her beating at the moment. But apart from those, I wouldn't rule out her chances against any of the girls ranked in the 130s downwards. I don't think that the majority of girls reaching the main draw through Q would have done much better in those past weeks with the draws that she had.

She will, however, put herself under tremendous pressure. It will be tough.

Oh, so you don't remember she was in the same position last year-- lost in straights to qualifier Vania King.

She also drew a qualifier at the US Open which turned out to be Nara who is now a Top 50 player. Drawing a qualifier doesn't necessarily mean drawing a walking bye, but I would definitely fancy her chances against the majority of the qualifiers at the FO this year.

Watson and Bertens are the only two girls that I completely see out of reach for her at the moment, although Alexandra has crushed both of them on clay in the past, if I remember correctly.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Needs to hope for a classic Bertens off-day, otherwise I really can't see her winning this right now.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Best of luck, but I don't think she has what it takes to beat Kiki these days.
