Quote:
The 21-year-old Cadantu followed with her own marathon win over No.6 seed Greta Arn. After losing a lopsided first set Arn came back in the second set and was leading in the third, 5-3, 30-0 - but Cadantu lifted her game again, winning the last four games to close out a two-hour, 36-minute, 62 46 75 victory.

"I'm in shock. I don't know whether to shout for joy or cry," Cadantu said after the match. "I've been working so hard to get better and doing so well here just gives me even more motivation. I don't even know what to think."

At the start of the week, not many would have picked a final between Babos and Cadantu, ranked No.107 and No.110. Before last week, Babos only had one WTA main draw win, but then made the semifinals of Bogotá and now a final here; Cadantu has been a bigger surprise, given she only had one WTA main draw win before this week. The two have met once before, with Cadantu winning a three-setter on the ITF Women's Circuit last year.
Lovely picture!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

WTA Acapulco, Main Draw:

(1)Roberta Vinci (ITA) v Silvia Soler-Espinosa (ESP)
Mathilde Johansson (FRA) v Stephanie Foretz Gacon (FRA)
Michaella Krajicek (NED) v Alexandra Cadantu (ROU)
Alize Cornet (FRA) v (8)Alberta Brianti (ITA)

You were right Gabi, a lot of withdrawals there!

She already beat Krajicek last year on clay in straight sets, so she should win this one as well if she's not too tired.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Lost the Final 4-6 4-6

This time she really should have served underarm.

Expected win for Timea who was the only player out there being able to break or at least get BPs, something Alexandra failed to do mainly because of the Hungarian's strong serve.

I hope she will get another chance in her career, however, great week and back into the Top 100!

But back to clay now...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

that was kinda expected, adapting to clay again in so few time must have been hard, but after all i guess it's a good thing as she can be ready for IW

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

For IW 2013 I guess, as she's not in Q list this year (at least this is what I read on IW Entry List thread )

A must qualify for her to be honest!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

At least I got sig worthy now.

How the hell did she won a 100k on clay? That woman makes me wondering.

EDIT: wasted SPs as well. People, I'm really close to opening a Romanian choke watch, it's getting a bit... overdue.
