And now she is in the final of her first 25k tournament in Mamaia after defeating Ferrer Suarez 6-2 6-1, playing Sharon Fichman there.

I guess that's reason enough for a new thread.

Lost the final in 3 sets.

That was some mess. I've watched from the middle of the second set.

Tig has so much more game than Fichman, you can't believe it. When she just put a little consistency on her shots, she was able to outplay the Canadian comfortably. Especially her forehand impressed me, but she can hit some great angles from both sides. I don't know which sport Sharon plays, but that isn't tennis. I can't even call her pusher, because they try to work with the pace of their opponents, while Fichman was more or less moonballing throughout the match, that 2nd set TB was priceless. And the hilarious thing is that she lost every point in it with an easy error whenever she tried to be 'agressive'.

In the third set, Patricia ran out of gas and after she got the break from being 40 - 0 up, the match was over. Her net game needs some work, her serve some speed up and her defense movement must be improved, because whenever Sharon somehow managed to boss her around the court, Tig was toast.

Still, she should climb up the rankings now, because she has too much game and talent to be stuck that far down. In the run of her career, a Top 200 ranking should definitely be reachable, it will depend on her will to improve to make it on the WTA tour.

Believe it or not, with this kind of tennis Sharon was able to stop Alexandra Dulgheru on clay when our GOAT was in great shape in the fall of 2009. Sharon can drive her opponent crazy with her long and precise balloons. :)

But was able to bagel her even with broken knees at the beginning of this year. :lol:

But how could we forget Peak Sorana winning a total of 2 games against her at Acapulco 2010?
I guess I know how this match looked like...

God, she is really hard to watch for more than half an hour.

I think that Sorana lost the plot completely, knowing her lack of patience. This is what I liked more at Patricia game today - she didn't hurry (most of the time) to finish the point, waiting for the best opportunity to blast the ball. Unfortunately she made same silly mistakes at net, giving easy points to Sharon exactly when it counts. ( for example the fatal mistake at 3-3 last set, on her advantage when she hit long a easy ball at net, a ball very well constructed so far- for that moment the match was over ). I really believe that is a sign of less experience of that level and she will improve this in time.

Regarding her service - she serve well with good placement of the ball but she need to increase the power.
Last, but not the least she looks to be very ambitious, even crying at the trophy presentation.

Nice week for Patty. Pity for the final she was definitely the better one and I agree with grs, in contrast to Sorana she showed some pacience when had to deal with Sharon's moonballing.
She tried to adjust her tactics in the final set and responded with less riskier balls. And seems to be a fighter too.
But I think she has to improve her movement on the court to cope with a more aggresive and better player
Anyway a girl to watch, with nice game and good potential

Same here, even though Platon's take on the match-up didn't sound like she's expect a different result. Then again, she's not the most unbiased observer either :p.

"Patricia and Irina played in the previous tournament, in the same phase. They have a completely opposite style, taking into account Tig hits decisively from any position, risking a lot, whereas Bara is more crafty and has more patience."

I have to disagree with Platon here. In Patricia's defense, all I can say is that she played lousy last week against Bara and kept missing a lot of easy shots, while Irina played above average. This week Irina played worse, especially in her first two matches. I expect Patricia to win this one, pretty sure she will fight to get revenge :)

Final against Alyona Sotnikova of Ukraine, whom Pati beat last week in a tight three setter. Hope she repeats the perfomance tomorrow!

She will have to play two matches tomorrow. Besides the final against Sotnikova, she will also play on a match on the qualifying draw for next week's tournament in Antalya.

Her section is as follows:

(1)Patricia Maria Tig (ROU) v Bye
Ilinca Teodora Bercaru (ROU) v Yihong Li (CHN)
Yana Yurchenko (RUS) v Bye
Ai Kamiyoshihara (JPN) v Bye

So Bercaru in the second round (tomorrow) and Yurchenko for a place on the MD on Monday. Good luck, Pat!

That's sad news for Bercaru, but good news for Patricia. Truth be told, she needed the rest of the day off after the last three long matches.

Russian Yana Yurchenko tomorrow in the final qualifying round. Hai Patriciosu!

So, today Patricia has to play a total number of 4 (four) matches :tape:

She already won her singles final ticket earlier this morning, then minutes ago she and her doubles partner, Gabriela Talaba, beat 2nd seed team in doubles competition (Sizikova & Wienerova) in a super tiebreak (64 16 10-4) :cheer:

So 2 down, 2 more to go: both the singles and the doubles final. Hope she won't be too tired for her singles match against Sofia Kvatsabaia, it would be such a shame to lose this trophy because of the rain.

Hai Patricia!

Those are very impressive stats. Nice to see her playing with this much confidence. I see Ana Bogdan is now signed up for 25k's instead of Antalya, so even she knows who the new Antalya Queen is. All hail Pati! :worship:

Very impressive stats, indeed.

Not to mention that on two occasions she won back-to-back titles (including this one she won today). And on top of that, today she already played and won 3 matches (singles semifinal and final and doubles semifinal) and she still has one more to play (doubles final). Hope she has some energy left for the doubles, but if she doesn't, it's ok. She's done brilliant already today!

Apparently yes. She's too good for these 10K, so once her ranking will allow her she'll start playing in bigger tournaments. A QWC for the WTA event in Bucharest isn't off the table, as well.
