Budapest, QF: (7)Irina-Camelia Begu def. (Q)Estrella Cabeza-Candela 6-0 6-3

Convincing and energy saving performance in the heat of Budapest!

Got only broken once in the whole match and also hit some smashing winners on to the lines!
Still some ITF ish patches in the middle of the second set...

Enjoy your second WTA semi now!

Took her a while, but at least she shows that Marbella wasn´t a complete fluke.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

If she is progressing as much as she did recently, it won't stay her last WTA semi!

Meanwhile, she was cruising on the ITF circuit reaching the final of the 100k in Marseille, too + she nearly upset Pennetta at Wimbledon on the grass and is now Top 50 in the Race of next week.

Right!

Irina has currently the best all surface game from all Romanian players in the Top 100 (besides Sorana, but she sucks as hell now )
The reason therefore is her very solid serve which is also working on the grass and on fast indoor HCs as well. For example, she won the indoor challenger of Glasgow twice in her career.

This year she played a lot on the clay because she broke through on that surface and we have a lot of small WTA and big ITF tournaments on clay in spring and summer to increase her ranking fast.
