Solid result and I can't believe it, but for once without a mental lapse.

Even though she could have avoided the drama at the end of the 1st set.

Playing Robson tomorrow and the Brit even though playing on a high, appeared with a heavily taped shoulder at the press conference after her match today.

Streems should be available.

WTA Tokyo, Main Draw:

[11]Ivanovic v Q
Q v U.Radwanska
Cirstea v (wc)Morita
BYE v [5]Kerber

Good draw, especially with a very winnable R1.

Kerber is another story, but she had MPs against her at the start of the season, so let's see what she can do here.

Sorana lost to Laura 4 and 2. She saved 2 MPs when Laura served for the match at 5-1 in a marathon game (there was also a marathon game at 1-4 where Sorana lost her serve eventually), but then Sorana lost her serve to lose the match.

Laura is in good form now and Sorana's current tennis was not quite good enough.

That second set was much more competitive than the score reflects.

Still your usual Sorana with great serving and ball striking, but little till no consistency, a pity.

Robson played very well, though.

Unexpected high quality match from both of girls, but Robson was the more consistent one.
I hope Sorana has able to recover well for Tokyo.

Re: Fall Season 2012 - Top 20, here she comes!

Well I stopped watching at 3-0 in 2nd sorana played poorly. first game she totally should break there. and the lots of netted balls and simply she was afraid of doing errors I felt like still she made way too many. I am not satisfied how she played. idk how she is almost top30 with that she needs to imrpove a lot yet. I dont see her beating Angie. depends if angie plays bad

Re: Fall Season 2012 - Top 20, here she comes!

First of all she has to beat Morita and I've just seen that she only dropped 6 games in 2 meetings against the Japanese so far. She should easily overpower her as long as she keeps her error margin low.

And against Kerber it will mostly depend how Sorana plays, like all matches she plays are on her racket.

Re: Fall Season 2012 - Top 20, here she comes!

There is a thread on GM asking why Lepchenko is in top 20. Simple as 1+1. She hasn't won a single match against top 10 in 2012, but she didn't lose to lower ranked player like Babos, Oudin, Watson, Espinosa, Karatantcheva or Tatishvili.

Being Sorana is difficult.

Not nearly as difficult as being a Sorana fan
