She hasn't won a match since last September, she is on a 6 match losing strike (had another 6 match losing strike in 2009, but back then she lost those matches to Zvonareva, Wozniacki, Bartoli, Goerges, Groenefeld and Niculescu, so no-one ranked outside top 100 at that time), she only managed to win a set against Mayer-Achleitner in these last 4 months and people still see her cracking into Top 20?

Even if she does so, it will only be for a couple of weeks, and only because other players fail at defending some important points, not because Sorana does something good these days tennis wise. She seems to have great seasons once every 4 years (FO 2009, Toronto 2013), so I expect her to have another beautiful week in 2017.

I posted that P.S just as a fact [statistically] (and as I put in the previous title - Go for top 20)


And you're being too harsh about the 2017 thing


P.S : A, da si o gramada de "specialisti" pe digi sport sau Doar tenis (facebook) cred ca poate ajunge in top 10 (curand) sau intr-o finala de Grand Slam si sa castige turnee pe banda rulanta (si poate si de pe-aici)

Re: 2014 Asian adventure (Cheering Thread)

Don't forget she's also scheduled to play Fed Cup although with her current form I don't see how Romania could use her

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Sorana are nevoie de o victorie ca de aer... Nu inteleg ce a patit fata asta de nu isi revine, am vazut-o de cateva ori jucand in Bucuresti pe cand avea cam 15-16 ani cred si pot jura ca juca un tenis mai bun. Si nu era vorba de advresare, pentru ca nici anul asta n-a dat in greu, pur si simplu parca juca mai relaxata, cauta winnere la orice minge. E drept, le mai lovea si afara, dar nu asta avea importanta, ci atitudine si jocul placut

Re: 2014 Asian adventure (Cheering Thread)

WTA Pattaya, Main Draw:

(7)Mattek-Sands v Ka.Pliskova
Tomljanovic v Q
Medina Garrigues v Riske
Schmiedlova v (3)Cirstea


Can't see her going further than R2.

So you think she can beat Schmiedlova? I know she has a chance, but still...

Re: 2014 Asian adventure (Cheering Thread)

She may also win the whole thing.

It's Sorana 'I play according to my hormone level' Cirstea we are talking about.

Pattaya is one of the fastest courts I can think of on the WTA and she has done well there in the past years.

Re: 2014 Asian adventure (Cheering Thread)

I am aware of her moody tennis and I am also aware of her previous results in Pattaya, but I still doubt that she can make it happen once again this year. Unless the "Diesel motor" got heaten up after the AO.
