Re: Arantxa Rus

Well that was an underwhelming tie break, really just threw it away when she lost the point at 3-0 down.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Lost 75 36 67(1). Big outburst at 0-3 in the tiebreak. ('JONGENS, WAT IS DIT NOU WEER, JEZUS!')

That loss was on her, 5-3 up in the 3rd. Somehow I'm not really upset about this loss. Alexandrova played really well and although Aran should have won, it may also be nice that she doesn't have to rush to Cagnes-sur-Mer where she is playing the MD and is 100k so a lot more important.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Alexandrova is such a random player who on paper has extremely good results at strong tournaments with some quite exceptional wins but her ranking is so low I agree with MarkNL although she really should have won this match...

Re: Arantxa Rus

Aran withdrew from Cagnes-Sur-Mer

Nevermind then.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Arantxa is playing 100k+H Prague this week and is seeded 3rd in qualifying.

Today she played Pemra Ozgen and won 76(8) 62. First set was a see-saw affair, up 4-1, then down 5-6. Edged the tiebreaker and won the 2nd set more easily.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Roland Garros Q-draw:

(9)Timea Bacsinszky v Richel Hogenkamp
Arantxa Rus v Lyudmyla Kichenok
Sesil Karatantcheva v Stephanie Vogt
Laura Siegemund v (13)Andrea Hlavackova

Arantxa can win her first match, but I think Bacsinszky will qualify from this section of the draw.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Disaster draw, Bacsinszky was THE player I hoped would be avoided by any of the Dutch players

True, our only hope is a very big off-day for Timea.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Choked the 2nd set 46, was up 42*

She has broken to love in the 1st game of the third set though.
