Arvidsson on clay is a good draw, but the scoreline is great.

She can trouble Kvitova who is far away from her best and here on red clay Sorana may feels more comfortable for sure. Already looking forward!

2-6 7-5 2-6

Good that she didn't choke it away in the 2nd, match quality was pretty poor, still a good week.

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

her main problem is patience I saw the whole match vs Petra it was mess she is going to finish the point ballbashing. she is even overhitting pettra her fh was really hard but she was so much going for shots early not enough patient wants to end the point u know she does it all the time its frustrating. petrahs very very very poor form atm so I really dont know obviously its biiiig improvemnt to last year.... but she can do much better still

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

Yes, she's still going for far too many low percentage shots. A huge amount of them can be explained due to her lack of defending game, that she couldn't keep a certain ball in court anyway and just unleashes a forehand/backhand with the hope that it may lands in, but what is really, really annoying are those completely brainless returns. There is nothing wrong about attacking a weak 2nd serve, but she simply exaggerated yesterday. Better take away some pace and add some angle or spin to force your opponent out of position.

Bad draw, turned out to be a very bad draw Lost 6-2, 6-1.

I didn't see it cos of work, but looking at the stats, the one that jumps out is Sori had twice as many UE's as Na Li.

Cirstea Kirilenko Goerges Ivanovic Cibulkova Petkovic
Paszek - Vesnina - Minella - Gajdosova - Robson - Pennetta

Stupid draw. I thought she wouldve been able to grab a few more games.

The gap between her best and worst is just way, way too big.

Her team retired from doubles some minutes ago.

Very good draw. Even not playing her best, she should make the semis easily.

However, she shouldn't underestimate her opposition.
