Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Normally Mladenovic is beatable on clay, but after today's counter-performance from Alex, I'm reserved in making any predictions.
My reserves stop when it comes to Putintseva, things are clear there. Should them meet in the second round, Cadantu will replay today's match.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She can frustrate Kristina by getting every ball back but she seems off this week

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I didn't either, but I followed the livescores amid my breaks from writing my dissertation and she had break points to go and serve for the first set and in the 3rd she was 4-2 up

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Not in the least surprised by the evolution of the match / score.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

For Romanian standards this one doesn't even qualify as mental blip.

Respectable scoreline, though, after the mess she produced in the qualifying.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Equal mess, in my opinion, considering that Babos is by far a better player than Mladenovic.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Kiki Mladenovic about her win yesterday:

"...Then the third set started.. I started to feel really tired and couldn't put the same intensity to produce my tennis. I was more defensive and lost the important points - and my opponent played better.

2/4, 15/40 down in the third set.. I was definitely in a bad situation with the scoreboard; but the worst thing was from that moment I got cramps in my right calf and thigh!!!!!!! Everybody around the court was, I guess, expecting me to lose this match - I say that because I was the first one to think, 'Oh my God, how am I gonna do this now?' At that point I was serving and just tried to serve some big serves and save that game to at least make it to 3/4.. which happened!..."

Almost no time to adapt to Marrakech conditions after playing indoors for Fed Cup, tired, injured, but still she did it.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Will you go and watch?

100 bucks for you if you pull a streaker asking for her interview on court.
200 bucks for screaming 'Alex, I want to have a baby with you' from the stands.

I wish I could go but I'm on the other side of the country. And my finals are approaching

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

100K Cagnes-sur-Mer, 1st Round:


Romina OPRANDI (SUI) [1] v Claire FEUERSTEIN (FRA)
Teliana PEREIRA (BRA) v Shahar PEER (ISR)
Nina BRATCHIKOVA (RUS) v Virginie RAZZANO (FRA) (WC)
Sesil KARATANTCHEVA (KAZ) (WC) v Alexandra CADANTU (ROU) [7]


Terrible terrible draw, with big chances of an early exit if Sesil plays like she did in Cali a couple of months ago.

But good luck!

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

A lot happened since Cali.

Alexandra is the favourite here and should really reach QFs with this draw.
