And so she got herself a free night.

Ok, Gabi, now you can admit that you did something in Morita's water.

Lost 57 62 46

So many BP opportunities in the third and nothing. Thank god Morita retired yesterday, otherwise it could have been another first round exit for Miss Cirsteia.

Sori lost 6-4 in the third against Errani .

Apparently in tears at the end, I believe she hurt her ankle a bit?

I didn't watch it, but I guess it wasn't much different from their Dubai encounter.

Just frustrating, but what should she do? She won't be able to outgrind Errani, therefore she has to go for the winners, but it's nearly impossible for her to be consistent enough in the end and despite 69 unforced errors, she had great chances to win this match.

Re: Sorana's sandbox tour on the clay - join for 2013!

I was right again with the problems she raised to Errani. Unfortunately she twisted her angle at 4-4 in first set and in short time she lost first set and the first two games in the second sets. From that moment she played an exceptional tennis who brought her 7 consecutive games. I didn't watch anymore form 3-2 but I think that eventually she paid for the energy lost running so much with an injured ankle. I am sure that without her stupid injury she would won in 2 sets.

As about Errani - watching the two Romanian's matches today I restated my opinion that Alexandra is more talented than Sara and without her injury she could be in top 20, at least, in that moment.

Of course Dulgheru would be ranked around Top 20. I guess comparable to CSN at the moment as they are both rather consistent and both know to play on clay.

There is no reason, Alexandra, without her injuries would have been ranked lower in the weaker field now than when the knees started messing up. She had over 2000 ranking points after Miami 2011 (#26) which would indeed be enough for a Top 20 place at the moment.

Rome, MD:

(15)Ivanovic vs. U. Radwanska
Cirstea vs. Morita
Goerges vs. Q
BYE vs. (3)Azarenka

Another golden draw for Miss Cirstea, another dollar.

It's Sorana, so she will lose this this time.

Ivanovic in second, Azarenka in third, this is golden draw?

Re: Sorana's sandbox tour on the clay - join for 2013!

Azarenka is still not fully recovered after her injury, she lost to Makarova in Madrid (if one of these girls want to kick Azarenka's ass now is the time to do so), and Ana is playing crap, despite her semifinal appearance this week.

So yes, it is kinda golden draw... But I was only referring to the first round, I don't think Sorana will go "that deep" in this tournament so that I can worry about her facing Azarenka
