Had to google that. Means Happy Easter, it seems.

Well, overall it was quite a good week for her, although the beatdown in the semi seems a bit harsh. Domi is pretty tough when on. I didn't see the match though so I don't really know how well the two girls played.

Sori good week
And Happy Easter

She lost R1 doubles though

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Sorana's sandbox tour on the clay - join for 2012!

Sorana is Top seed in the Stuttgart Q-tournament, facing Chakvetadze in R1.

She shouldn't be afraid of the big name here, Anna is actually a doable R1 draw IMO taking into account that's her first match on clay as well. Sori should win this one (if she plays with brain)...

Her section:

(1)Sorana Cirstea (ROU) v Anna Chakvetadze (RUS)
Irena Pavlovic (FRA) v (wc)Julia Kimmelmann (GER)
(wc)Antonia Lottner (GER) v (wc)Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER)
Gisela Dulko (ARG) v (7)Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)

Re: Sorana's sandbox tour on the clay - join for 2012!

Just came home and I'm pretty speechless.

You should actually think that being ranked that high again should lift her confidence, but she obviously went on from where she left after the Cibulkova match.

Let's pretend that never happened, of course she wouldn't have won a match in Fes as well with such an effort (Lalami included). Here she can at least state she played a 'tough' opponent...

Chakvetadze beat a Pavlovic in QR2 in 3 sets who barely survived wc Kimmelmann, so this was probably Cibulkova all again...

The W/UE ratio would have probably be far enough to make it into that latest thread.

I'm actually surprised it was that close...

No, I had to leave for uni, but losing to Soler means more or less missing most of your shots.

Random good form didn't hold up for too long.

Sori . On clay players like Soler are pretty tough to put away, they feast on your errors.

She drew 7th seed Marion Bartoli for Madrid R1.
