Re: 2014 American adventure (Cheering Thread)

Great fight after going down 26 02! Too bad she couldn't hold serve in the third

Still great effort

is coming for your towel, too.

Glad I stayed up to watch this. Best match Sorana played all year (except maybe vs. Ivanovic in the Fed Cup). Should be a confidence booster, even if she lost in the end.

She fought so hard and seemed to be enjoying herself. She should be proud of her performance.

Still hurts, though.

Re: 2014 American adventure (Cheering Thread)

It was one of her best match so far this year. Too bad the first set was really bad from both, but she couldn't take advantage of it.

It was the best fight she put up in a long while, you rarely see from her lately the desire to win she showed last night. As for quality, the best match was a couple of days ago and I don't think she'll top that very soon.

Sori had a legitimate shot there, after she settled she played as controlled as we'll ever gonna see her, but as long as she gives away breaks like that with DF's she won't beat this kind of top opponents. Which is a same really, because she should be winning these.

ps. Anybody knows if the romanian ES commentators are active members of the Genie Army??? They were praising her like she was the second coming or something

I tend to be more impressed with Sorana when she manages to raise her level of play on big points, instead of playing really well throughout. Would be a nice addition to her game. That, and not serving double faults to hand over decisive BP's. I live in hope .

F`king this. WTF is wrong with those guys. I mean , after the first set i change the audio channel of the transmission because i couldn`t listen to that crap.

It was one from there ( dunno his name of the commentator ) who`s voice tremble when speak about Bouchard. I mean , WTF ..

@BenRothenberg Sorana Cirstea battles back to take second set 7-6(3) over Genie Bouchard, much to the relief of her new boyfriend Santiago Giraldo. #usopen

Well, at least the off-court part of this season seems to be going well for her
