Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Yes, I think Alex has a chance here. She is 0-1 against Julia, but that was 6 years ago. This is their first meeting on grass.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

She definitely has a decent chance.
Even the bookies odds are better than one would expect Goerges-Cadantu 1.5-2.5

Obviously she can't, although Goerges plays 50% or less of her potential today.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Julia is absolutely beatable as long as Alex stays in the point for more than 3 shots.

Ace and holding to love She'll probably get broken when serving for 5-4

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Saw this loss coming from the day the draws were out. Goerges could have had problems with both her wrists and still would have won today. The fact that she won this despite playing worse than she did at the French Open where she lost to Kucova kinda shows where Alex is right now.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Alex played a decent match, she had SPs in the 2nd so that means she was on par with Goerges at some point. Julia wasn't at her best but she played way better than she usually does in MMs, perhaps being in Germany motivated her a bit more.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I just wanted to say the same. I watched the first set and was surprised by the quality of the match. Goerges was the aggressor with some great winners from both wings while Alexandra hung in and counterpunched quite well.

There was one game which went to deuce multiple times and in which Goerges saved tons of BPs, so she definitely was motivated.

It's the random DFs that still cost her so many matches. Her second serve is actually indeed a second (first) serve for her. She can't play it safe or just throw it in.
