Monterrey, R2: 'The Unbreakable' Alex Cadantu def. Silvia Soler-Espinosa 7-6(6) 6-3

1st WTA quarterfinal, and of course on Hard!

Saved 2 SPs in the 1st set tiebreak.

BP conversion:
Cadantu: 2/2
Soler: 0/6

Won 89% of the points on her 1st serve as well.

Your fave could never.

Does she really have such a big serve? She won 100% on 1st serve in a 7-6 set Don't remember when wast the last time I saw it on WTA.

Yep, that's our GOAT. TF will get to know her sooner or later. Better watch out.


Fun aside, she has a decent 1st serve, but Silvia's return especially on the backhand side is a big hot mess...

Gotta love her randomness.

Good for Cadantu, I picked Fes for her first WTA qf but she's done it already. She's clearly underrated like her namesake and countrywoman Dulgheru was, the next question is how good is her Michael Jackson impression?

I saw her live at the AO vs Vinci and I honestly am so surprised she can even win matches on hardcourt, she looked helpless and lost against Vinci that day it was frightening.

Good on her though

we don't care of how good 1st serve was, how many underarm services on 2nd?

well done Alex

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
