Re: Bucharest Open 2014

The tournament actually was a big success, it was NID that it will continue. Hope to go next year

I think she'll play, not only for marketing purposes for the tournament, but for her to have a title next year since she struggles in bigger events.

Now you're being a little rude . If healthy , I could bet that 1-2 titles can come before Bucharest, no doubt.

Re: Bucharest Open 2014

You know what struggles means, right? Sure she could win but she also might not

All the top players (maybe except Serena or the vile russian) should play and try to win one MM pro year. Even a small title can make wonders for their confidence

Re: Bucharest Open 2014

So... is there any logical reason why they didn't move to take the place of the now defunct portuguese Open??

Maybe it's too late or maybe they didn't apply for that or they were denied. Some say that it depends on the influence of the tournament director as well. For the ATP tournament it took a while to be moved in the spring ....

Even so, tomorrow the Shenzhen list comes out and it's definitely too late. Halep is already on the Entry List and posters and if that would happen, the Shenzhen withdrawal reason would have to be a very good one to not get sanctioned by the WTA (cause fines there will be anyway, regardless of the reason) and to be able to play an eventual spring Bucharest Open.

Re: Bucharest Open 2014

Damn . Didn't expect Irina Begu to not enter here . Overall , it looks better than last year (except Top player Simona Halep of course) .

Interesting that Sorana (Cirstea) signed up on the pre-Qualies list this year, when she's in very bad form and her ranking dropped and will drop more.

That makes no sense Irina is the last one I didn't expect to sign up.

Also Serena signed up to play the Bastad clay MM that week, while superstar Halep can't be bothered to show up in Bucharest... embarrassing

Sorana will get a MDWC tho, that's just common sense. I understand Gabriela Ruse will also receive one, we'll see...

Come on , with the Serena comparison ......

She has to play at least one MM for the WTA sake, commitment and bonuses . Also, the Bastad moguls emptied their pockets deeply to bring Serena here ( she signed up from 2014 ). Bucharest will not give sh*t to Halep or any other player. . Also, the american could withdraw, like last year.

And the decision is taken after last year when she f*cked up the american & asian swing big time because of not being recovered from the Wimbledon injury and aggravating it in Bucharest (cum "s-a dat de gol" recent si cine are ochi sa vada, a vazut asta).


EDIT: Oh yeah, and Serena, at 33 is MUCH better prepared physically and adapts quicker than Halep . Also, Ruse might be a big mistake for an MDWC !.

So what are you saying... if the Bucharest moguls give Halep enough money she would play???

I really don't think it's about money. I don't know what it is, but it's really disappointing to see her recent refusals to play in or for Romania.

Oh... and she didn't "f*ck up" anything by playing last year. She lost to Lucic-Baroni fair and square in the exact same fashion she lost last week, or do you blame that also on playing in Bucharest last year?
