Re: 100K+H Athens FINAL: Lourdes Dominguez-Lino (ESP) d. Sorana Cirstea (ROU) 6
I got to agree with Y.J.CHANfan, Dominguez-Lino isn't a bad player, at least on clay, and when she is playing at her best, on her favourite surface, she can be very tough to beat. I would guess probably 90% on this board that had any interest in this match wanted Sorana to win it, myself most definately included. And I share the disappoint others feel, it would have been nice for Sorana to win in Athens, but I really don't feel this was such a bad loss and Sorana's continued rise up to the rankings isn't going to be significantly affected by it. It is just 20 useful ranking points down the drain, nothing less, nothing more. Sorana is still doing just fine.
