I think for sure the injury set her back but even last year when she was playing well and winning those 25k's, she wasn't winning a lot of matches at 50k level or above. If you compare this "North American swing" to last year, it's not that different:

2016 50k Waco: R16
2015 50k Waco: QR2

2016 50k Toronto: R32
2015 50k Toronto: R16

2016 50k Saguenay: R32
2015 50k Saguenay: R16

2016 50k+h Tampico: R32
2015 50k Scottsdale: QR1

Nightcrawl3r The good news is that the Special Ranking application was approved . Leave aside the rest.

Her SR is at #204. She should make it this time, if she goes again, unlike this year when she went and remained 1st under the line (ranked 208 then) .

Re: Mihaela Buzarnescu thread!

She signed up for the Oz open with her protected ranking Pretty optimistic given her recent results... let's hope she gets in and manages some wins there

Made the SF in Zawada and they look in good shape to go even further

Given that she played in french interclubs on sunday (13.11) it's very probably that she withdrew in order to fly to Europe. They wouldn't have won against Krajicek/Tounsend anyway

France Interclubs - Day 1
Mihaela Buzarnescu d. Josepha Adam 62 60

Nightcrawl3r WTF happened with the Waco Doubles final ??

Why the Walkover ? I tried almost everything to get an answer from inside the tournament, but no success. Douche-bags .


I'm a little (more) afraid to not be something like in February in Brazil, which would probably mean the end ....

Also, it seems (to me) more and more clear that her Special (Protected) Ranking application might have been denied , especially after seeing the interview from a few posts below and playing qualies in these tourneys, so she might have missed 2-3 months for nothing. At least I hope it was Zarazua who withdrew ...

Re: Mihaela Buzarnescu thread!

Yeah, that's why I like it. You can see that guy is not a journalist or something, he just talk openly and says a lot of random stuff. At one point today someone send him a few real Trump quotes and he couldn't stop laughing...

The guy was bashing Mihaela pretty often during the match but as much as I hate to admit it, he wasn't doing it gratuitously, he had a point

Here is the match btw: https://livestream.com/livesportsllc...deos/141532511

Re: Mihaela Buzarnescu thread!

They go on very random tangents at times. Mexican restaurants in California at one point . Wasn't able to listen in this time around, but Miki was actually playing well. Too bad she couldn't hold serve in key moments

Re: Mihaela Buzarnescu thread!

Lost to Sam Crawford 67(4) 46 First set was dreadful but Miki could have won it, served for it and had one SP... second set was actually much better but also lost very close by Miki

Still some good wins finally this week and she's still in the very week dubs draw there. We should expect her and Zarazua to make the final fairy easily

Re: Mihaela Buzarnescu thread!

Well, another runner-up trophy in dubs with Sasha Perper in 25k Buchta... but in singles it's three consecutive first round exists in 25k tournaments
