I've really been impressed by Begu this week, its almost puzzling how she has not made the top 100 at least yet. She has a good serve, decent defense, good tactical mind & good solid strokes that should take her to the top 100 at least. Hopefully, she will reach there soon with this breakthrough tournament.

Maybe Dulgheru won't win in Marbella, but Romania still have Begu :eek:

Every single year there is one Romanian who has a breakthrough, Im curious who it will be next year

Wow. Easily the best win of Irina's rapidly improving career. This really has been a real breakthrough week for her. Her first WTA maindraw win, her 1st WTA quarterfinal and her 1st WTA semifinal all in the same week.

Right now Irina is probably the fastest improving player outside the top 100. She started 2011 ranked 202. Next week she will be at least 114. In the unlikely, but the way she is playing right now not impossible, event that she beats Kuznetsova, Irina will find herself comfortably inside the top 100 next week.

I am very curious to see how Irina continues her rapid rise up the rankings for the rest of this year. She has a lot going for her. She's got a good serve, almost certainly the best in Romanian tennis, strong groundies and she moves pretty well for a tall girl.

Had a feeling she would win this. :yeah: Hasn't lost a set this week, including qualies. Great experience for her that will hopefully give her the confidence to keep rising and add another Romanian to the Top100. :yeah:

Irina :yeah: Still hasn't dropped a set in 6 matches :eek:

Yep. And even more amazing....in 12 sets she has dropped just 26 games. That is barely 2 games a set. :eek:

I want this woman to keep winning so that I keep reading her name here and elsewhere. Everywhere.

Irina Camelia :hearts:

Seems to use a full western, for those inclined to such details.

wow Begu reaches her first WTA SF! :eek::worship:

Zakopalova is annoying. Hate her attitude on court. Begu vs Azarenka final please. :angel:

Sorana, please wake up, you`re still the most beautiful though! :hearts:

Which would explain why she likes the clay. Would like to see her play on hard courts before I sing her praises too much!

It's nice to see other Romanians making the transition to the WTA level, now that Cirstea, Olaru, and Halep seem to have stalled in their progress. :yeah:

Sad for Klara, but still so happy to see Irina making a move this year. Thought she was going to just stay between 150-250 for the rest of her career at one point, but she's already 18-2 for the year. Go, girl. :worship:

Romanian names are seriously the best. If I have a daughter, I will be using a double-barrel Romanian name. Period. Every time one of them decides to officially ditch the double-barrel first name, a little kid dies somewhere. (RIP Sorana-Mihaela :bigcry:)

I'm so happy that she finally managed her breakthrough! It was more than overdue! :yeah:

How solid and mentally strong she fought through this match! :eek:

You wouldn't have thought that she faces a Top 50 player in her first WTA quarterfinal with real chances to advance to the semis! Very impressive! Keep going girl! :cheer:

I'm surprised how many people like her only because of her name! :lol:
