4 SPs and a 5*-1 lead in the TB.

No need to cry.

The Romanian choke of the year-banana is a pretty good booby prize.

Yes and no.

It's harder for her on the net and also to set up her strokes, but it's also a reason Karolina's moonballs dropped pretty short on a regular basis.

EDIT: 4-1 it was.

Re: Sorana's Asian Swing 2013 - Part I

To be fair, i'm not sure she would have won this even if she hadn't choked, but it's still one of those things that annoy me because it's happening again and again...

Re: Sorana's Asian Swing 2013 - Part I

A complete embarrassment to her fanbase, this woman at times.

How long did that 2nd set last? 15 minutes?

Re: Sorana's Asian Swing 2013 - Part I

She was playing so well that first set. Got a little cautious on thet set points, and you can't do that against Caro. Completely gave up after the first game of the second set. Where the hell was her coach during this time? Piotr was out there twice.

Sorana's stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. And that outfit? Hot. Too bad her tennis sucks.

Re: Sorana's Asian Swing 2013 - Part I

WTA Dubai, Main Draw:

Victoria Azarenka [1] - Bye
Dominika Cibulkova - Nadia Petrova
Sloane Stephens - Sorana Cirstea
Sara Errani [5] - Julia Goerges

There are no easy R1 draws in Dubai and both players choked massively in Doha.

Still, Sloane is quite a bad match-up for her I would say, but we'll see.

She has no points to defend, so even if she loses, it won't hurt her.
