If I looked for a beauty in tennis, neither Petra, nor Cadantu were my choice. But if I looked for a tennis player whose behaving I am most uncomfortable with, Cadantu would surely be one of my prime faves..

Thumbs up Re: Katowice QF: Cadantu def. Peer 5-7 6-3 6-3

I agree with what posters have said before: I do not like pushers at all but somehow Cadantu makes me wanna watch her. I think it is her ability to completely cut down on unforced errors, despite showing moderate aggression, in important moments when it really matters. I think people who play tennis really get attracted by that ability and it amazes them wanting to watch this girl.
In her match against Begu, there were some Haides here and there but nothing exaggerated and I thought she was a really calm and fair player; did not complain about calls, was quiet during rallies, did not go ratchet when Begu circled balls out that were right on the line.
Today I stopped watching in the third set against Shahar because I had to leave and I did not notice any additional loudness, she was just a little more intense but I think compared to Shahar, who bitched towards to the seven year old ball kids (who do an AMAZING job for their age, btw) she was an angel. I thought Shahar was way more annoying - comparable to her outbursts at the AU Open against KDK.
And yes, she does look a lot older than 22years old, if it is not a fake birthdate then it can be explained by how hard she really works out there.

She deserves my respect and I will cheer for her tomorrow, she needs to create deep and heavy spin against Petra to offset her. Even though I am a Petra fan, I really wish Cadantu wins because she needs it more right now

Always spilling the true tea in vivid detail. What antics did Peer get up to against KDK?

All I know is that this thread makes me want to see Cadantu play.

Re: Katowice QF: Cadantu def. Peer 5-7 6-3 6-3

Peer has received much support during her run in Katowice which was highlighted by the Pirnkova match which had the full audience watching and waiting for Radwanska I haven't noticed anyone getting jeered and whistled at and I think the Fed Cup shambles connection was non-existent. People just came to watch tennis and they usually support good points with some extra support for a losing player like was the case with Minella vs Kvitova.

But as for Cadantu, it's very obvious she's determined to do well and has shown probably the biggest fighting spirit out of all the players I saw this week. People here say she's annoying but her so-called antics are nothing compared to what Camerin was doing since Q1 for instance and this against much lower ranked players like the Latvian kid. Cadantu wasn't a favorite against Peer IMO and quite frankly I'm very happy that both she and Beck reached WTA SF for the first time right here in Katowice. Some higher ranked players were just awful or seemed not to care much about the results anymore when they were losing (Camerin tailed off completely after losing the furst set from 5-1 up yesterday but I'm not picking on her, she's just had this bratty aura around her all the time she played here ) and I think Beck and Cadantu seized their chance to the limit (Peer was the same) and now they're playing the top two seeds in the semis.

Moreover I've noticed that many fans were impressed by Cadantu's performance and fighting this week after overhearing few conversations in the hall. I probably watched her more this week than during her entire career since apart from the Sharapova RG shambles I don't recall any of her matches allthough I watched some but they are completely gone from my memory now. It's funny how you can embrace a player you didn't like much before or treated as random mug at best. For me Cadantu was rather invisible on tour but I can only have fond memories of her stay in Katowice now and will remember that for the future

Re: Katowice QF: Cadantu def. Peer 5-7 6-3 6-3

Holocaust is one thing but there's also the March of 1968 crisis which resulted in several people from the Jewish community expelled from Poland. Moreover the Polish Jews (atheists) were connected strongly to the terror years immediately after the WWII and were occupying high government offices and the courts once Stalin was still alive. The whole situation is much more complicated then in Czech Republic and our relations with Jews since the war have been rocky at times to say the very least.

But that's not the thread to discuss it even though most of the people here don't realize what's really behind the alleged Polish antisemitism.

Thank you for your very nice comment!

PS. Cadantu has already a WTA Final at Monterrey last year.

Re: Katowice QF: Cadantu def. Peer 5-7 6-3 6-3

I was there for the first set and didn't detect any anti-Peer behaviour... People may have been cheering for Cadantxu more because she was getting all fired up and shit.

I don't know of any Israelis who blame Poland... I thought the original post regarding the polish people vs. Peer has referred to the Fed-Cup events and not the Holocaust. Israeli school-kids go to Poland every year to learn about the holocaust. I did it too and I don't "blame" Poland. Moreover, what do Polish people today have to do with what happened 70 years ago?

My grandmother was born in Poland, many people I know came from there and for all I know relations between Israel and Poland aren't bad (better then many other countries, for sure).

BTW, the crowd in Poland was very kind to Shahar all week and I didn't feel it was much different in the QF match. She got support in many of the points, and being the more agressive player seemed like the crowd appriciated her game.

Re: Katowice QF: Cadantu def. Peer 5-7 6-3 6-3

It was a very good match, but Shahar lost her composure completely....disappointed for her.

First time I've seen Cadantu play....she isn't just a counterpuncher, she's also quite aggressive at times. However, that screaming was completely unnecessary.
