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

She still should consider herself lucky, I'm sure she lost just in time to catch some wedding in Targoviste

You know you're choking is really one of epic proportions if it looks as if you are tanking, because it defies the capabilities of an ordinary human mind.

And she has Sharapova, Federer, Nadal, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Azarenka, Tsonga, Hewitt, etc among the people invited?

Getting on a court with no strategy at all (except for her constant & annoying "Hai, trage de tine!") defies logic.

C'mon, man, don't even put her name close to those of Roger, Maria, Lleyton, Jo & Vika. Just don't!

They all lost to players who were at least playing well and they all lost in 'normal' fashion, Sorana on the other hand flopped to a player who hit 8 DFs in the 1st set alone, wasting SPs in both TBs.

Obligatory DF on SP included.

I only watched a bit of Lleyton's match and Sharapova's second set, and I agree. Their opponents played Solid today and deserved the wins. Sorana just choked with a player who was an UE and DF machine today and who only won 3 main draw matches this year until this one.

Because they are Grand Slam champions or finalist, that's why. And because Sorana is not & will never be one

Giorgi and Cirstea plays similar style of game, like they are sister. In such a match usually win the girl who are feeling better in that day and who had a bit of luck. Also, I have the feeling that Giorgi like more to play on grass because she can move a little faster and can bend a little better.

I bet with everyone that on HC or clay Sorana wins 8 / 10 matches against Giorgi.
