Bastad 1R: Cirstea beats Lucic 75 26 75

One of the shittiest matches of the year, but the third set was a lot better with Lucic playing errorless tennis till 5-2 and then Sorana stepping it up and playing her best tennis of the match to win.

Lucic should be ashamed though. No fight from her whatsoever.

Chokerrrrrrrr

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Bastad 1R: Cirstea beats Lucic 75 26 75

this match can be summarized in: "you suck? i can suck more..." "you choke, i can shoke more"
still happy Sori got through this

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Bastad 1R: Cirstea beats Lucic 75 26 75

it's hard being Miki's fan

leading both first set & final set 5-3 and serving, play too passive and let Sorana back in the match

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

Re: Bastad 1R: Cirstea beats Lucic 75 26 75

Horrible match full of wasted chances and unforced errors, DFs and 2 girls who are that far away from the best like the earth is from the sun. It was like watching a 50K challenger level club match, but even one of the less good ones... .

I'm a fan of Sorana, but still Mirjana should have won that match. There was nothing to see from her solid grass court season... . She squandered BPs on nearly every occasion, hit nearly 20 DFs (most of them when being a break up), and was actually in control of all three sets until she got brain injured.


Led 5-3 in the first losing 13 of the following 16 points to lose the firs set, even took a medical timeout, though her illness
didn't bother her much in the run of the match...

She also led 5-2 in the final set before the brain injury reappeared, though Sorana hit some nice winners and leveled up her first serve percentage at that time.

Next up is Dolonts who is actually a cow on ice on the clay, but with Sori' performance from today, I'm not that optimistic anymore...

Just watched from time to time, and I've honestly watched much worse this week. Yakimova vs Craybas, for example. This was a superb match compared to that.

Yeeees.... comebaaaack...
