Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Unexpected win against Bondarenko today : 0-6 6-4 6-4

I haven't seen what happened, only watching live score. There was a long break at 0-5. As much as I'd like to think ihis was all Alex, it could as well be that was an MTO for Bondarenko, and whatever caused that, may have further affected her in the match. Some chances to make the MD now.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Qualified with another come-from-behind win 57 61 61 over (wc)Antonitsch and will play fellow qualifier Krejcikova

Tbh after Istanbul I was kinda expecting her to do good here also. You hear players say all the time that it's much harder for them to play in ITF and they perform better in WTA.


Nürnberger Versicherungscup (GER)
Main Draw

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Played Bundesliga in the last period and won both her matches (ag Ostlund and Wachaczyk), so hopefully the injury from Nurnberg is nothing serious.

Also a new episode of her vlog is online:

I don't know, Alex didn't seem to be disrespectful in any way. She took a long MTO when up 3-0 and she was quite loud when hitting the ball (so was Sakkari) but apart from that I don't know. Sakkari played very badly towards then end so maybe she was just frustrated.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

So happy for her.... she's playing soooo well

Well, I feel like even tho little Krunic has been struggling for some time now, it will be very hard for Alex to beat her in the final

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

As expected she couldn't do much against Krunic, lost 63 30 ret Alex rallyied as good as she could but just kept getting outplayed, the retirement seemed half because of an injury and half out of frustration.






Anyway, as it is in tennis..... another week, another tournament. She's been playing so well in WTA's this year but she needs to bring it also in lower ITF tournaments if she is to rise in the rankings.

$60,000 Hodmezovasarhely (HUN)

Alexandra Cadantu (ROU) v Nicoleta-Catalina Dascalu (ROU)
(SR)Mihaela Buzarnescu (ROU) v Patty Schnyder (SUI)
(6)Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR) v Vera Lapko (BLR)

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

@Not A Fan thank you so much for posting the videos to her blog... I've watched them all now I'm excited to be able to follow Alex and her tennis

Is Christian her boyfriend?

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

You're welcome I like the vlog too... someone should make like a GM thread, I think many people on this board would like these vids

Yes, he is her boyfriend. I think he works in television so you can see the vids are very professionally done.
