Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Sorana won after Tsurenko retired at 1-all in the second set.

Good solid 300th win!

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Tsurenko is struggling with injury problems for quite some time, however, Sorana's serve stats look decent.

Next up is Riske. She should be able to beat her.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

A win is a win. Next up is Cornet - a very winnable match, IF she plays well.

IF she plays well, she should make the final, as the bottom half of the draw is a complete joke. But there's a big IF.

Not so easy. Cornet took a set from Vika in RG and is not as easy as you say, and Sorana can have a bad day any day
Maybe she learned from Simona to be a new Sorana? hard to tell

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Sorana hasn't lost a set to Cornet since 2008. Twice on hard last year quite easily, 61 75 & 64 63. And we all know what happened in 2009 RG: 63 62.
Cornet, on the other hand, won a set against a terrible terrible Azarenka in RG; any other decent top 50 player should have won that day.
IF Sorana will play decent tomorrow she is the favorite for winning. But, as I wrote in my previous comment, there is a big IF. IF she plays well, she should qualify for the final here. I doubt that she will, but we'll have to wait & see.

Monsterball, why did you delete your comment about Sorana's answer to the first question in her interview? What you said made sense.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Thats the problem with Sori. You never know which one you get. A good one or a losing one. The gods decide when she wins

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

The word to describe the localness of this match so far has not been invented yet.

At least we can say that she already hit the worst drop shot in the history of the game.

What else would you expect from a match on a Grandstad nearby a parking lot?
