Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Sorana's back! Here's her Stanford section:

[5]Cirstea v Morita
Q/LL v Niculescu
Goerges v Govortsova
[2]Stosur v BYE

Sorana has a bit of a tricky draw. She's not going to be happy facing Ayumi first round-- she's 2:3 against her, and 1-all on hardcourt. If she gets past Ayumi, she has to face Monica, who she has a losing h2h against.

Still, good luck to her! She has nothing to defend until Cincinnati, but it would be nice to pick up points going into the USO!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

I know Stanford was last year immediately after Wimbledon but Sorana made the Semifinals there and it would be nice if she could get as many points back as possible. I expect her to do well as she is coming after 10 days of good training on hard courts in Vegas. She should make at least the 3rd round of not more.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Stanford courts suit Sorana's game perfectly, but that's also the case with Morita.

They know each other very well, not only from their previous encounters, but also from numerous doubles matches they played together. Ayumi is slumping a lot lately, so I would give the edge to Sorana, but you never know with her...

All in all, this is a very good section for her to get some points.

Standford used to have all courts streamed, right?

This is a match I think I wanna see

They start showing matches on Tennis Channel and ESPN2 starting next Thursday. I don't know about other stations.

Thanks! But I guess I'm stuck with this stream http://www.streamingtennis.com/Cardinal/court1.html

Unfortunately the quality is very poor.

Hmm, that is actually pretty good.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Seriously?

I can't tell which one is Cirstea from the two of them

Edit after first service game: Now I know And suddenly me wanting to watch this seems so wrong now

That must be some Stanford's TV surveillance system.

Anyway, as you could see Sorana got it right since that opening game.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

And now 3 set points down the drain. I guess Steffi taught her how to do that. Noooot!

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Morita is just awful right now.

Still quite a patient performance from Sorana so far after some messy start.

Re: Sorana -- Road to the USO 2013!

Stunning comeback from 0-40 down.

Morita is making it a match now.

Not many thrills for this match, everything is going according to the plan.

No chances for Monica if Sorana can conserve this returning for a possible R2 clash.
