Re: Cristina Dinu

Nice to see her winning something. Good for her. What I like about Dinu is that she is making a slow but steady progress.

Re: Cristina Dinu

She was disqualified . How can you say it's a mess if you don't know what happened ?

I know she was disqualified, Skerlock That's what default means & that's why I said she is a mess. She was a set and a break up in the second, then somehow she managed to lose the second set. Very well, so far, nothing unusual. But then she got disqualified. What for? Maybe she refused to play any further and just left the court, maybe she said nasty things to her opponent or to the chair umpire, maybe she hit someone with a ball like Olga Puchkova did earlier this year. I don't know & I don't care. I still think she's a mess no matter why she was disqualified for

Re: Cristina Dinu

Exactly my point . Like in Puchkova's match where the idiot that got hit by the ball was acting like he was Shot.

Or in Serena's match a few years ago where she didn't actually threaten (to kill) the line referee and maybe more examples.



P.S : I didn't know about the break up in the 2nd set. (but maybe she could've won the match in the decisive)

P.S 2 : Esti fata sau baiat ? (pretty stupid question)

Maybe "that idiot" wasn't acting at all, I'm pretty sure it must've hurt like hell. I'm also sure Olga didn't hit him on on purpose, but although she apologized & went to see if he was ok, the umpire did the right thing disqualifying her. I would have done the same & I'm a big Puchkova fan. As for the Serena incident, there was a death threat there & she should be thankful she got away only with a point penalty. That poor woman could have pressed charges against her. Check the videos on youtube, maybe you need to refresh your memories.

PS2: Does it really matter? I can hit like a boy & scream like a girl

Re: Cristina Dinu

There was an interview with Dinu posted on this thread in which she admits losing her cool and messing the whole match up after that. Do I remember correctly? Is that a recurrent problem with her? Maybe she needs some counseling, some professional help.

Re: Cristina Dinu

SpÓrlea loves this.

Cristina definitely has a huge attitude problem. It's not her demeanour alone. She has days where she literally doesn't give any fuck and it shows in her up and down results over the year.

Never thought she could crack the Top 200, though. Maybe she thought that things would go by themselves now, but it's still avery long way for her to go.

Re: Cristina Dinu

She is hot tempered, indeed & she's quite proud of it. I'm sure she has a squirrel, they all have.

Re: Cristina Dinu

She's not talented enough to pull off a disqualification. It doesn't even look good when Serena does it. A mess indeed

Re: Cristina Dinu

Looks like it was nothing but an irritated umpire.

Apparently she left the court without asking permission to go somewhere after the second set and when she returned the umpire defaulted her. A bit harsh this decision. I remember a match a couple of years ago when Petkovic literally ran out of court in the middle of a game. Nobody knew what that was, everybody assumed she had an emergency, she came back, nobody defaulted her, the umpire didn't even asked what was that all about... But I guess the prominence of the two players played a big part in these two very different approaches of these two similar situations.
