Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!
That was actually a pretty good win against a hometown girl who was playing with confidence and can play a big game. I'll trust Curcubeau's match analysis since I didn't see it, but maybe first strike tennis against a player like Coco was a good strategy. (I'm giving Sori the benefit of of the doubt here). When comfortable, Coco will feast on soft hitters ala Niculescu. It seems like Sori never let her get comfortable.
Good luck against Govortsova. Another very winnable match, although she looked pretty good against Stosur.
