Marbella R2: Alex Dulgheru def AMG 5-7 6-4 6-4

3h
clay court drama and i loved it
AMG was the better layer for a set and half but Alex never gave up till the end altough was very erratic
Alex took her risks in final game and it paid off
tomorrow it's gonna be another marathon against Sara i still remember their last 2 matches on clay last year

Re: Marbella R2: Alex Dulgheru def AMG 5-7 6-4 6-4

I just love to watch Dulgheru play on clay. AMG was very good, too.

Title should be between Azarenka and Dulgheru.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Very strange match. Medina was easily the better player for the majority of this match but was wasting opportunities at will. Can't afford that against such a solid opponent.

Re: Marbella R2: Alex Dulgheru def AMG 5-7 6-4 6-4

Great match to watch if you're into clay tennis
Both players kept wasting chances, Alex choked in every set


2h57m on court, and Sara played a 57m doubles match, that is excellent

I may not dare to show you
I might just walk away or crawl under another rock
It's so tempting

And in less than three hours too.

Seriously. Absolutely wonderful claycourt battle. Alex is such a fighter. You can almost feel how much Alex enjoys these kinds of battles, win or lose. I don't think there is a player in the game who enjoys being stretched to their very limit as much as Alex.

Dulgheru lost 8 point in a row to lose first set Anabel was broken to love to lose the 2nd. Pretty random, uninspirational, predictable clay boredom.

this show you really didn't watch the match
AMG played a very good match but not mentally tough on important pts
btw you expect a GS winner and silver medal in Olympics to have a good net play but her volleys and smashes are so bad

Current Clay-GOAT outslugs the former one
This classic showdown should be replayed time and time again on tennis promotional reels
