Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She's an aggressive but powerless baseliner.

This. And that's where the mess starts. Luckily, she isn't that bad a retriever on clay, but on other surfaces...

And she lacks a second serve. Her second serve is basically a slower first serve, no spin or anything.

Yeah, I thought she seemed to do well on clay...although that run in Monterrey was good.

Most people seem to think she's the worst player in the top 100 though, reading GM anyway. Although some ppl there are very negative...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

No, that's Bratchikova.

She isn't less talented than other Top 100 player, but she needs to beef up her game in general.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

It's either Foretz-Gacon or Oudin for me. Karatantcheva isn't too impressive either.

Ok, cool...I hope she has better slam results next year too.

I'm such a huge fan of Romanian players, and Alexandra C is the one I always seem to forget about..

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

There aren't bigger clay events at the moment and the Entry List is better than those WTA Challengers for sure.

It's a good decision for Alexandra to make some easy points.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

that's a really bad loss Yulia was in probably a worse form than Alex, but she wanted to prove me wrong

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
