Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

What's happened with Alexandra? She has gotten herself to the edge of the top 200 and now suddenly she seems to have taken a few weeks off. When will we see her again? I do hope she isn't injured.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

I haven't heard anything about an injury, but I know that she is a real clay specialist indeed and maybe waits for the first 25k ITFs on this surface in Europe. Last year she had also a break at that time to prepare for the bigger clay events.

She has almost nothing to defend up to April, so this isn't a bad decision, I think...

Yeah, I think you have hit it on the nail. Even by normal Romanian standards, looking at Cadantu's career record, she really is an ultra-clay specialist. In her entire career of approxamately 90 events she has played only 6 events not on clay. So I suppose she will be back playing again once we start getting some more 25ks on clay.

Yeah, but against Lindsay lee-Waters on clay it shouldn't even have been close, Waters is still a good player on hard but on clay this should have been a routine win for Alex.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

Cadantu near top 200?
I would never have guessed that Begu & Cadantu would get so high, but they both must have improved tremendously. On the other hand, Dabija & Enache were two players I thought would be breaking onto the main tour, but they are in the same position for years now.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM)

You never know how a player develops...

Don't forget our former Top 10 juniors Ana Bogdan and Buzarnescu who are only part time players today because of injuries...
