Re: Alexandra Cadantu

It's the Romanian tennis federation.

They can't even afford a decent Fed Cup coach, let alone motivate the best players to participate for different reasons and we are actually quite patriotic people.


Once again, stay patient, Gaspa!

God, I just have to think back at the stories of people waiting 15 years for their first car...

I did not know that so thanks for this info.
Great article as always. The Begu one was the most emotional.

Will you do one for Simona also.

Agree with you about the emotions delivered by Curcubeu's articles, but I don't think that he can ever match the emotions received by watching a Simona match. This girl is a "killer"

I've known that Italians are very optimistic, but you are beating all my expectations

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

My most emotional matches from all Romanian players:

- Alexandra winning Warsaw first. I was so tense in the end with all the weather mess and restart, but it just felt so surreal, especially how she completely demolished Bondarenko in the end

- Alexandra winning Warsaw for the second time. Made me unbelievably happy and by looking at the hate and all that bashing (Dulgheru winning watch etc.) the most satisfying win ever

- Alexandra again, losing to Sharapova in Miami 6-7 in the 3rd after over 4 hours of crueling fight. I stayed up all night and I was so crushed and empty afterwards. In hindisght that tough loss also was the nail into the coffin for her knees.

- Sorana losing to Ivanovic in Linz, the second set lasted 12 minutes, just sad. I'm glad she picked it up again.

- Irina-Camelia's TB dilemma nearly made me throwing my laptop out of the window. For the first time I really pitied someone for being such a headcase, I have never seen anything similar in my life as a tennis fan

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Classic Romanian match with tons of drama and chokes. I wouldn't be surprised if she wasted SPs in the 1st.

Anyway, good to see the work with her new coaching staff paying off in the fitness department. Like no other player in the Top 100 Alexandra is dependent on the fitness, because she needs to play a lot of tournaments especially on the slow clay to keep up her ranking.

Alex is on the EL for Shenzhen. First tournament for 2013, it seems.

BARBIE

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

First she has to snatch the title for worst player in Top 100 on GM.

Then, she's gonna kick ass for sure. As I said in my review, always expect the unexpected with Alexandra.
