Bally blew it big time and should be furious with performance. Truly appalling result. 4 set points including being up 5-4* 0-40

Then had 4-4* 0-40 in the second and lost 5 in a row.

Haven't been this disappointed with a result of hers in a very long time.

Bally What the hell happened

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

Alex is a mental giant at times! I really have the feeling that she sometimes needs a push to wake up!

Very, very important for her self-confidence!

Re: Dubai R1: Alexandra Dulgheru d. Elena Baltacha 76(3) 64

Not a big surprise. Last year Alex started her season pretty dismally. But gradually she got better. She won her 1st match of the year in Dubai. After that she won matches in her next two tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami. By then she was ready to kick ass during the clay season and follow this up with a successful grasscourt campaign. And that's just what she did. I expect this year will be quite similar.

While Alex is not ready to challenge top 20 standard players on a hard court when she is playing well she is most certainly able to win on hard against most of those outside the top 30. But clearly it takes her a few weeks of the season before she gets going. January is not her best month, to put it mildly.

I do now expect her to follow up this win with further victories in Doha, Indian Wells and Miami.
