Re: Alexandra Cadantu
Yeah, I don't know... I mean I used to be a huge fan of Alexandra.
I saw her playing the 100K in Bucharest in 2011 and in that quaterfinal match against Halep she was just incredible. She lost it, but she fought til the last point.
And besides that her story always impressed me the same way that Gojnea's sad story impressed me. The lack of money, not affording a coach, let alone a professional team, the lack of interest from the Romanian Federation for her and other girls who aren't ranked that high, everything made me think that if this girl can get to no 67 in the world without a Federation and a team on her back, when she'll have an opportunity she'll just take it that instant.
Well, she now has that opportunity for quite a while. And instead of making the most of it, all she does is lose gracefully, in qualies or first rounds. I'm sorry I have to say this but I expected much more from her. I know it's easier to win when you're Laura Robson and you have 20 million worth sponsorship contracts, but what Cadantu keeps on doing this last 8 months is just crazy.
