On the other hand, she well deserves an entry for her come back from MPs down in R1.
She did choke - from *3-1 to 3-6 in second set she lost her concentration after a service called out.
and from *4-1 in the third after a long game won of Alexandra's service when I thought that she had the mental advantage.

I'm always hard with chokes, but in all honesty, compared to her choke against Vinci in Budapest final where she was missing sitters left and right, this time she was just being worn down.

Would have been a different story if this wasn't streamed and I would have just judged from scoreboard. She was pretty much finished already at the end of the first set, nothing left in the tank.

Simona said that the Romanian girls are all mentally strong

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
