Alexandra Dulgheru!!! - vol2



Alexandra is a former Top 10 junior who's been left in the dust as her contemporaries, Victoria, Caroline, Aga and Agnes have made their names on the WTA tour.

Now, Alexandra seems to want to make her own noise. She just lost out on winning her 2nd (and by far biggest) title at the 75K hardcourt in Monzon. She is now within the Top 250 and warrants her own cheering thread!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

She withdrew from the 50k in Osprey next week. Hoping it's just a scheduling choice, not injury-related.

I kinda expected that. Probably not injury related anyway.

She was scheduled to practice with Halep on Court C from 10 am but IDK if they did that , as Halep practiced with Vesnina from 11 am

Of course she withdrew. She's playing in doubles with Halep. First round tomorrow I think. I'm surprised nobody noticed that.

I'm so excited for both for this team-up!

Not sure why dubs in Miami and a Tuesday (at the earliest) start in the ITF would be mutually exclusive. Hopefully they do well as a team, but I really don't see them lasting past the quarters. Good to see them getting into Fed Cup spirit early on, though

Ofc they're not. Especially considering that these two doubles-specialists, Alex and Simona, are widely expected to lose easy in the 1st round

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!! - vol2

I agree they don't seem to have much chance (though one can only hope).

But isn't it more fair-play of Alex to let the organizers know in advance, rather than calling last minute to say she can't, because she actually did make it to the 2nd round in doubles here (which I think will be on Tuesday only).

Also, I'm not familiar with all formalities in these tournaments, but maybe there are even some deadlines and fees to pay to confirm your participation, and that deadline might have been today. I don't know...

Anyway, I do agree that either way she's taking a certain risk, sacrificing probably some points and money, for an experiment which might or might not pay off on the long run. Because I do wish them all success. They're both among my favorite tennis players, so I couldn't be happier if this works out for them.

There are such fees and deadlines (as described in the factsheet). The only thing, Alex will now have to pay a fine to the ITF because of her late withdrawal

Not even that -unless she's already done it three times already, which I doubt. First 3 LW's per year are 'excused' http://itf.uberflip.com/i/464146-201...book-english/0 (on page 105). The whole section reads like a school attendance policy, which I guess it is in the end
