Soriiiiiii

And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken

Sorana played a less strategical match than in Australia -- let Sam see too much FH's especially that one at 5-5.

Anyways I'm pretty satisfied, her game is in place again, she has great on-court positive attitude honestly the future looks good for Sorana in her future tournaments. Also she didn't collapse in crucial moments like she would in the past, stayed composed etc... and kept trying promising like I said.

Oh dear Sori...after being 5-3 up in the TB...

But good level of play overall, she's on track for a very solid year

Fantastic match !! I feel sorry for Cirstea, she played probably her best game up to date. Maybe next time.

2nd major choke this year after that Kerber catastrophe in Horbat and still she plays better than I have seen her for the past 2 years. Makes you thinking.

Please sort it out and do some damage in Monterrey now...

Sori good match overall, did very well to break back when Sam was serving for the match.
the loss in the tiebreak after leading 5:2 was
still a promising start of the year nonetheless. keep that good play.

Still not convinced by Sam's form...AT ALL, but she's lucky that Cirstea is one of the best match-ups possible for her (leaving aside the mental meltdown in Australia, she thrashed Cirstea in both their other matches).

She's going to have to step it up I think, because Cetkovska's flat-hitting is the type of game that actually can trouble her. Hopefully she can atleast get through that one to get some modicum of momentum going for this season.
