Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Lost in dubs QF but very happy she could put the disappointment from singles behind her and have a good run

Turns out she already made more money getting to the Round of 16 here in doubles than she would have winning Marseille ($15,200). Prize money outside tour events is really ridiculous these days. Hopefully she takes away some confidence from this good showing in dubs and brings it with her in future singles events.

After this match , Irina had to withdraw from Marseille.
Now, first seed there is Tatjana Maria from Germany.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Such a good win today. Irina and Saisai do a great job again today, they should continue together <3
In quaterfinals they will play against Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua or Daria Gavrilova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Will be very tough but i hope they will be more stronger than ever.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Good to see some great results in doubles after the horrific singles

SSZ is a great partner to pick up, I wonder if they will play together after RG. Maybe if they make a really deep run.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Good win today with Saisai Zheng against Abigail Spears & Katarina Srebotnik (8) 1-6 6-4 6-3
They do a really good job together.
Next: Shuai Peng & Ying-Ying Duan. I think that will be a tough one.

Good luck on grass... even if it's not her best surface (by far maybe). Or was she the one deciding to fully skip grass this year, only going to Wimbledon? But even so, let's hope she manages a round or two there at least.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Poor Irina, what a disappointing loss
Well she'll be around #65 now, falling behind Niculescu and Cirstea as ROU's fourth ranked player. I still say this can be a blessing in disguise and without the point cushion from the clay season she'll have no choice but to compete really hard for the rest of the season. Imo she's a much better player than that ranking...

le. Said after the match she has some elbow problems and is affecting her serve

Ooo, fell to Mariana, 67(2) 46. Had 4th round points to defend. Now 1-all against Duque-Marino.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Not the worst draw possible but certainly not easy. If she gets by Duque, possible rematch of that epic 10-8 in the third ag. Vandeweghe from last year. Also randomly playing dubs with Saisai Zheng... they might win some rounds, got a nice draw

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Unfortunately Irina lost in the first round to Sevastova so she's heading for outside the top50 with big points still to defend in Paris

Idk maybe the drop will be good for her, last year with that big cushion from the clay season she didn't really do much for the rest of the year (expect vulturing Floripa ofc)... now she will have to compete much harder. But let's see, maybe she will still do something in Paris, will for sure be one of the most dangerous unseeded players there.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Actually there wouldn't be a better opportunity for Simo to tank & rest than against Irina. Sadly the odds for both to make it that far are minimal. Irina mainly due to facing some of the toughest opponents, Simo because likely she will want to take it easy to avoid the risk of any injury before RG. And with that approach, Siegement & Osaka will walk right over her (well... almost - but they have less to lose giving their all).
