Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

And over all other remaining seeds. Tomorrow is my day-off so I will have the pleasure to follow it live.

She really has a shot. Wozniak's career record on red clay is everything but overwhelming. It will depend on her serve and her nerves.

Yeah, I've already noticed yesterday that there is coverage on TV Sport 1 when I watched the Babos match.

Thanks.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Badass 2nd serving.

I've done her wrong. Her game is surely Top 100 level, no doubt, but her (2nd) serve is just atrocious, even worse than Monica's and the loads of Foot Faults as well...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

It's only enough for a set at the moment, I blame the lack of experience here. We shouldn't forget that the biggest difference between ITF and WTA lies for sure not only in the differences of talent, but mostly in the level of fitness, training and endurance. It's not that easy to adapt to the demands of the WTA tour with the much more professional opponents when you were used to the ITF for so long.

Most girls have completely different training capacities and possibilities, while Alexandra's environment is completely basic and local, probably the most basic among Top 100 and it became obvious today that it's very hard for her to keep up her performance. That first set was probably the best I've seen from her, the tiebreak especially was brilliant, but once she got a bit negative after wasting chances and decreasing her 1st serve percentage she was toast. In the end she hid herself behind the towel, she was clearly frustrated about her game, but there wasn't more she can give.

Still, I'm positive about the upcoing ITF in Cagnes-sur-Mer and no doubt she can win a match at RG as well with a decent R1 draw.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I agree with what you said Aaron but still, a double bagel ?

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

If things go wrong, they go wrong completely.

Blew some GP/BP chances early on in the 2nd and never recovered...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

That was some pretty good and heavy hitting from either player in that 1st set. Cadantu just stepped it up in the TB to go in lead, then her serve broke in and Wozniak hit like 20 direct ROS winners from there on.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Alex is the #3 seed at Cagnes Sur Mer. Plays Edina opening round. Interestingly, these two have never played each other before.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Tough one. Edina's slice could easily trouble Alexandra who has the more potent ground game by far. Serve sucks for both.

Not that surprising that they never played each other. Cadantu is much younger and they are only ranked within the same ranking zone for 8 months or so.
