Was 2-6; 6-4; 2-2 Can we mark this as a Top 10 win?
Anyway Sorana is back in Top 50

Re: Around the world - and back into Top 50?

Ah, a typo on my part. I don't think a retirement should count as a top 10 win. However it is a great opportunity for Sori. She has a good H2H with Kiri as well (2-0) so she will have a chance to advance.

Although admittedly they haven't played since 2010.

Re: Around the world - and back into Top 50?

Great, great result, pity about Vera's injury, but such an important result for Sorana!

And Kirilenko really bullshited her way to the semis for most of the time. She has a chance, but above all I'm happy to see her on a stream!

By the way, the question mark of the title is removed!

Re: Around the world - and back into Top 50!!!

Kirilenko won 6-2 5-7 6-4 again with some big time luck, those net cords...

Sorana was crap in the first. got better in the second, but in the third they both played great tennis, but Sorana should have never grt broken at 4 all in the final set!

But this is a good result and now let's see what she can do in Doha!

Re: Around the world - and back into Top 50!!!

Main draw at Doha Premier

(6)Vera Zvonareva (RUS) v BYE
Elena Vesnina (RUS) v Monica Niculescu (ROU)
Q v Q
Flavia Pennetta (ITA) v (11)Dominika Cibulkova (SVK)

(13)Ana Ivanovic (SRB) v Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP)
Petra Martic (CRO) v Petra Cetkovska (CZE)
Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS) v Sorana Cirstea (ROU)
(3)Samantha Stosur (AUS) v BYE

Another match against Sam in less than a month.
And why not another QF against Vera?

Re: Around the world - and back into Top 50!!!

Monica will take care of Vera!

But pretty good draw. She even beat Jarmila last year when she was in less good form, so she should win now as well!
