Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I haven't seen her playing like she did tonight in a very long time! Semifinalist again in Stanford

She really likes it here apparently

And the good news after this victory is that, after 15 years Romania will have 2 seeded players in a grand slam. Last time that happened was in 1998 Australian Open when Spirlea was seeded 6 and Dragomir was seeded 15.

Go girls!

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

She is playing well on these courts but I am not impressed, nothing really sexy about her game. I like her serve but that's pretty much it.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

After losing the first 3 games in the first set (with only winning 2 points), she became more agressive and not only she served well, but her return was a beauty until the end of the match. I don't usually get excited about her tennis, but it was great to watch today. On a killing spree!

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

A lesson for me not to listen to rumours and watch the player first before I talk bad about her.
two romanian players in semis of two wta events in same time, and its not even halep the top ranked. they push each other. well done romanian tennis

She actually won the third game of the match, which was critical as it went to deuce. Had she gone down two service breaks, it might have been a different story.

Sori also caught a break in the sixth game. Govortsova was serving at 3-2, 30-15 when she hit a service winner that was called out. They replayed the point and she double faulted. Sori went on to break and sweep the rest of the set.

Let me know what you think of my box score. This is what I did instead of working on a Friday afternoon.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

one good match - one bad match - one good match ...

What the actual fuck.

I missed this match and really believe she was stellar as the courts favour her game, but that up and down from match to match is really tiring.

Well according to that logic she will play a stinker in the SF, but I hope for the better.
Looking good for another Top 30 finish.

On a Friday afternoon in July when half the office is on vacation? I'm sure my boss was doing something similarly useless.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I really hope she makes the Final and plays Aga. Of all her matches that I watched this year I enjoyed the one against Aga in Indian Wells the most, even more than the one she won against Kerber.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Routine win

Now into her second SF of the year! Up next, a rematch with Cibulkova, which Sorana won last year!
