Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She is ranked at the bottom of Top 100, no one expects players ranked there to be world beaters and most of them have some serious flaws in their games.

Alexandra's strengths are not visible at first glance, but she is an amazing competitor, she is feisty, she is tenacious, never gives up, and reads the game very well. Her movement on clay is fluent and natural, her shot selection is nearly impaccable considering her limited abilities.

Thanks much. I thought that might have been it after reading backwards through the thread to the start of the match.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I only caught the last few games of the match and I must say she was pretty good.

She deserves my respect and I will cheer for her tomorrow, she needs to create deep and heavy spin against Petra to offset her. Even though I am a Petra fan, I really wish Cadantu wins because she needs it more right now

The owl has spoken.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

2 games loses at 30; 4 at 40, 19 points won in 6 games - I can't call it an one way match.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I wanted to watch a little but then I saw the score.
I'll stick with the Masters.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She is one of a kind. Taking it with humour which is a good sign.

She is just staffage out there, as expected.
