Yeah, that's probably it. There must be something about Alex C's game that troubles Mona since Alex has played so competitively against her twice on fast surfaces. It would be interesting to see what would happen if Alex C got to play Mona on clay.

It's so hard to follow Alexandra's matches on livescore

Lost to Oprandi, but won 3-6 6-1 7-5 against Dokic in Monterrey R1
4th Top 100 win.

Possible R2 rematch against Alexandra The Great now!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I like Alexandra first serve - it's really a good one for hard.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Yeah, her 1st serve really isn't that bad. Her second is a mess, though, and she is still hitting too many DFs.

She also defended quite decently with some good length in her shots, hit some nice forehands as well, her return was surprisingly solid, her backhand on the other hand is quite loose. However, it's enough to beat Dokic today.

Where did you watch it?

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

It would be so painful yet entertaining if Alex the lesser actually beats Soler.
