Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

It's was a unexpected quality match from two clay girls on HC. The first set was taken from ATP book - not any break points, very high percentage on first service (100 % for Alexandra ), very disputed TB.
In the second set Alexandra saved THREE times from 15-40 in Federer's style - very well placed and strong first services.

And Alexandra is back in TOP 100 in style

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

She has definitely a better 1st serve than Dulgheru or Niculescu, that's for sure. However, still too many DFs because she more or less hits the second like she does her 1st.

She was outstandingly clutch throughout the match, took both BPs she had while saving the opponent's 6. Wow...

Well deserved quarterfinal against probably Dominguez-Lino. Room for more?

Odd stat, yes. Where'd C make the diff?

Cadantu won 89% of her points on her 1st serve throughout the match, 100% in the 1st set.

That girl is so completely random!

They probably thought Sorana would win and now Alex has to play on the parking lot!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I just saw that Alexandra is currently even ranked higher than Lourdes...

However, those moonballs, I don't think that she can deal that well with them, so we won't miss that much.

I still have a night session match at the ATP Marseille which would have been at the same time, but interests me more to be honest.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I know that Alexandra hasn't a play too enjoyable to watch but I love her determination, her fight for every single point and the intensity of her living the game. I really want to see her ranking higher

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

6-2 1*-0

From service GOAT to return GOAT! She's hammering LiDL's second serves!

I'm not allowed to think what she could achieve here...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I guess she has more in common with Alex D. than her name...
