I am so, so glad she played Hobart instead of Sydney!! Great tournament for her, regardless of the result of her next match.

Re: Sorana in Down Under (Rebirth or Back to Suck?) - the Start of 2012

I had to leave for uni at 6-5* in the final set and hoped so much that she would break Beth's serve and she really did it!

I turned on from her trailing 1-3 in the decider and what I saw was quite an entertaining match with some nice rallies and Sorana with her usual club level-Top 20 tennis roller coaster, however she fought it out in the end from a set and a break down. The mental strength which used to be one of her assets is back!

Wow this is very impressive, and have to say a bit unexpected! Great to see her in such good form and recovering from losing 1st set 6-2 v BMS was great!
Btw if any Sori fans here haven't voted on the games thread thing please do now PYW Romanian Championships 2011 - Welcome to Iași! Champion: Sorana Cîrstea

Sori almost has it won! Be her 1st title of 2012

If she could beat Kerber that would be a big step forward. Not sure she's ready to do it. But hope she is.
