Re: Alexandra Cadantu

20 years between Alexandra and Kimiko.
Alexandra need to respect Kimiko, but she must beat her and she can it

I hope so, but I'd rather have no expectations at all. Kimiko has so much more experience compared to Alex...

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

I want Alex to win against Kimiko but that would mean facing Serena in R3 and probably getting double bageled again on a central court So I'm not sure...

It's not about experience here.

Alexandra is really hopeless on grass under normal circumstances. We can't even say that she played well today because she hit more UEs than winners herself, judged by the stats. However, Tamira was being an unforced error machine of epic proportions.

Kimiko is the better player on this surface by quite a margin. I hope Alexandra wins 5 games at least.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

who cares? R3 of slam on Grass = GM gone grazy

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I know that, I was just saying that age comes along with a great deal of experience, let alone the individual affinities for the surface in Kimiko's case.

Still, I would love Alex to get trashed by Serena in the third round! Third round!!!

Alex rankings will jump high if she gets the R3. 160 points is a lot at her rankings

just checked, will jump to 69 from 86, not accurate of course.

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Why do I have a good feeling about her game with Kimiko?
because I remember her character in the photos from Saturday and she looks happy and ready and dynamic

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

OK scoreline, but the match itself was very poor.

However, she is the only Romanian tennis player who can be happy with this Wimbledon.
