Re: Fed Cup Romania

OK, I've been rather busy this weekend (and still am), so I have no time to search all videos or read all the (43) pages of the hot thread on GM...: What did Nastase exactly say?

I mean, I never liked the guy, but I'm still curious what it was (feel free to send it by PM if you don't want to put it here), because from what I read (on the diagonal) in the GM thread, this may follow us yet again on the long run, with another negative stamp for "all Romanians", even if the guy is not representative for the rest of us... and certainly not for our girls which were kinda caught in the middle of this, and maybe forced to "diplomatically" defend him because the guy remains quite influential (with sponsorships and at the Federation), so if they would publicly distance themselves from him it might cost them.

***

Nevertheless, congrats to our girls for this win!

And frankly I'm feeling much better that they accomplished this under the leadership of our brand new captain. Nastase parading afterwards as if it was his victory would have just spoiled it.

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Irina didn't play her best but she was amazing dealing with the pressure to bring the point for 3-1. Some of the winners she hit with full rage in the second set were

So happy the girls finally managed to get a win, they are really a great, great group and deserve to be right at the highest level in Fed Cup.

Hai Ilie?

That aside, very nice to see Simonal playing well today and Irina back in action. Hopefully they're both healthy for the entire clay season & play well

Re: Fed Cup Romania

In timp ce nu sunt de acord ca, modul in care a procedat Nastase nu a fost unul normal si trebuie sa plateasca pentru asta nu pot sa nu rezonez cu declaratia lui Mutu.

Re: Fed Cup Romania

It finally happened, Halep won both rubbers for Fed Cup Romania Clearly most of the credit must go to the brilliant new captain
Not only did Halep expose Konta for the basic player that she is but the delicate flower also managed to expose herself once again as a cheater when she tried to circle a totally different mark for the umpire to check

Begu now against Watson to hopefully bring the win. Let's go

That's an argument you hear all the time, including in skating "The lutz took off from a correct outside edge from my vantage point" . She really needs to keep her mouth shut at times. Ca se crispeaza

I took way too many anti-harassment courses to come anywhere close to what was said in Nasty's defense . To me, Anne looks uncomfortable in that pic with a frozen smile that looks closer to 'please get me out' than actual enjoyment. And then you see a pic like this where he's clearly encroaching on her personal space.

Sori's full presser in english, so that people don't take her words out of context anymore

Defending him as 'these jokes are who he is; he's like that with us, as well' is pretty bad, but still within reason. Speaking on behalf of Anne when she was clearly uncomfortable and bringing in the 'unfortunately many rules that exist nowadays' is just -worthy. The whole issue with hitting on the other team's captain is that you make assumptions about what other people are comfortable with. Using that same flawed logic as your line of defense is idiotic, at best. Especially since I suspect that was Cosac all over again.

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Also... apparently asking if she is ok and to explain what happened is not an okay question for the delicate flower that is Johanna Konta. Ohmygawd let's all be careful not to disturb the delicate flower
But Sori ance again

Sorana's PC after the match. Here's a short vid: https://www.facebook.com/37644309270...5112254837060/

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Simona

Cirstea lost as expected

Why did Begu not play the 2nd singles rubber ??? I hope she plays tomorrow !!!

Romania needs Halep and Begu in singles and Begu/Niculescu in doubles tomorrow !!!

This will not be easy. And the loser will fall back to Europe/Africa Zone !!!
