Sorana won in a day in which Nadal was beaten by nr 125 ATP and Paire lost a set to Ungur !

I don't know which of the above is more shocking, to be honest.

I think Nadal played on one leg to be honest but Darcis was brilliant, he played a great match.

One leg? This match is the first played after RG final, where he had 2 very good legs. Strange that his injuries happened exactly after the end of the clay season.

Coming back to our topic, I think that is time for Sorana to pass the round 3 and have an encounter with Sharapova in R4.

OMG

Let's just give her the Wimbledon trophy already

She should consider herself lucky if she reaches 3rd round again.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

Why do we, Romanians, have this unequalled talent of veiling our own players in subtle irony whether or not there is a reason for it ? Just wondering.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

Because we care about them.


It's a bit teasing, nothing more. Sorana for example has days where she is that embarrassingly bad that there is no way you can't make fun about it.

Still, there is a lot of good debating in Tennis Romania in comparison to other sections on this board where the only thing being discussed are the outfits at the player's party.

Why lucky? At GS Sorana have lost only 2 times against lower players, but never when she was seeded. So all our "it's about Sorana, we have to expect anything" isn't quite exactly right on GS.

That was a bit nasty, I admit

And she doesn't deserve nasty remarks after today's win, I agree. But comments and predictions like Sorana reaching 4th round here make me smile. She will most likely lose in the third (if she gets there), come back to Romania and give short interviews for newspapers & television saying that "Yeah, it was a good tournament for me!"

Expect only this and maybe you'll have a nice surprise in the end.
Expect anything more form Sorana (not all Romanian players as you suggested) and there's a big probability that you'll be disappointed.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

Great win against a tough opponent. I am one of the people that refuses to get too high or low about Simona's performances because I can't deal with emotional extremes. I hope she can at least make it to the 4th round like grs said, but if not that's fine.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

When did Sorana get in the habit to do a fist pump after every good ball? It's simply irritating.

Her match got moved to Court 12. It's a streamed court, but I haven't found a stream yet.
