In my honest opinion, she couldn't have wished for a better draw.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

Na Li (CHN) [6] vs. Sesil Karatantcheva (KAZ)
Pauline Parmentier (FRA) vs. Olga Govortsova (BLR)
Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) vs. Sacha Jones (AUS)
Coco Vandeweghe (USA) vs. Sorana Cirstea (ROU) [27]

Julia Goerges (GER) [18] vs. Qualifier
Romina Oprandi (SUI) vs. Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL)
Yuxuan Zhang (CHN) vs. Jie Zheng (CHN)
Kai-Chen Chang (TPE) vs. Samantha Stosur (AUS) [9]

All that section is very good for an in-form Sorana.

Definitely and she has more or less a free ride to R3 and then you never know with Li.

On the other hand you never know with Sorana as well, but R3 is really a must do, especially compared to the draws of her compatriots.

All her R16 section is full with "you never know with ..." .

Maybe a rematch with the drug addict?

She wouldn't lose this time. Even though Sorana is a mess I can't recall her throwing in such an epic stinker twice to the same opponent.

Coco has been in such terrible form since that final in Stanford....surely Sori will beat her?

She needs to capitalize on this draw. Li, of course, is tough, but Sorana knows she can beat her. I can think of few players I'd rather have her face than Vandeweghe.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year

Sorana may not be 100% healthy.
Reason is the bookies "opinion".
At an important one, the opening odds were Cirstea - Vandeweghe 1.22-4
Now are 1.72-2. This is a huge change.
Worrying.
