Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Playing against a qualifier in her first round match at RG.

Possible second round against Sloane Stephens or Karin Knapp.

Perhaps her biggest chance to win a match in a grand slam.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Here would be a chance.
Mandy Minella: Luckiest player ever?

I would love a 2r match vs Stephens on clay.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She drew King

One of the bigger names, but definitely beatable barring that she hasn't developped some Slam complexes.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Definitely beatable, but shouldn't be underestimated. Watson was more than beatable in AO and we all know what happened there.

Anyway, good luck Alex! Hope King will be your first victim in a slam.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Not the opponent she wants first round. Vania has had a terrific claycourt season, and will be looking to defend her second-round points.

Not sure Alex will get by her

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

It seems that even her own fanbase is still underestimating her...

Red clay wins in 2013:
King (10)
Cadantu (16)


King's best win was against Beck 6-1 7-5.
Alexandra's best wins were against Lisicki and Begu, also trashed Beck 6-1 6-4

Taking into account that the American is getting brushed aside easily by any half decent player at the moment and also needed 3 sets to beat Kichenok and Meusburger in qualifying, there is absolutely no reason to see her as a heavy favourite.

King has more accomplished in her career, but at the moment Alexandra has all the advantages on her side.
Of course, anything can happen here, but I would be truly disappointed if Alexandra would lose this one.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Black Monday. All 3 lost today.
Alex fought like a lioness to get her break back in 2nd set and made it 1-1 then totally collapsed.
