Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

She was so solid against Mertens for the first 1/2 of the match, it really looked like a routine win...

Lost again to Kasatkina 57 in the third but this time she had a lot of chances to win the match just lost her serve too many times in the decider. Wasn't a pretty match really, Irina was missing a lot and Kasatkina was basically just pushing.

Saw the match vs. Mertens, live.

While it was an UE fest from Irina in many moments, especially BH, Mertens seems to have very good defensive abilities, given her height. And serve + powerful shots as well. I rarely say this, but she could go far is she keeps improving.

I still don't know how we lost 0-3 vs. Belgium .


Doha is next. She'll play R1 tomorrow vs. Kasatkina, again, and she somehow wins, Kerber will wait in R2 .

A bit disappointing they didn't do better in mixt. I really think they can be a very strong team.

Very close match in any case, only one break chance in the first set which Pliskova took and in the second set Irina had two SP's in the TB but couldn't convert. She really struggled on return, had only 3 BP's the entire match and all in the one game where she did manage to break in the end

She's still in dubs tho with Arruablabla and will also play mixt with Tecau

She lost in women's doubles but did better in mixed.
Begu I./Tecau H. (ROU) def King V./Qureshi A. (USA/PAK) 6-3 6-4.

"Sunt bucuroasă, mai relaxată un pic. Au fost momente când aş fi vrut să returnez mai bine, să joc mai agresiv. Dar, per total, eu zic că a fost un meci bun. E un pic mai greu începutul de an, am nevoie de meciuri ca să îmi intru în ritm. Mă bucur că am reuşit să revin, să îmi dau drumul la joc. Întotdeauna primul meci e cel mai greu şi se simţea şi din partea mea, şi din partea Slavei un pic de tensiune. Suntem prietene, am făcut câteva antrenamente împreună şi ne ştim jocul. De aceea, la început a fost o tatonare. Am pierdut primul set şi am avut şansă la 4-4, am avut 40-15 şi am pierdut game-ul acela.

Ar fi fost diferit dacă aş fi câştigat primul set, dar mă bucur că am reuşit să câştig în trei seturi. În setul 2 m-am relaxat şi am început să dau drumul la joc, să lovesc, să fiu cea care conduce. Aş vrea să nu fie o tradiţie, sincer, dar, în acelaşi timp, pot să zic că e un lucru pozitiv, pentru că am câştigat multe meciuri în setul decisiv. Am căpătat aşa-zisa experienţă. Când ajung în setul decisiv, am încredere că pot să câştig, că pot să fiu cea care preia conducerea, cea care dictează întâi jocul", a declarat Irina Begu, la conferinţa de presă.

Irina

Kris Pliskova is next. Irina's 2-0 against her, but those matches both went three sets.

Irina Was afraid she'll come out negative after those two bad service games at the end of the first set but was not the case at all. Wasn't broken again in the last two sets

Yes ! A Romanian is through !

Good play, though it could have ended (much) earlier . Very good last game from both players. Good that she stood there and didn't collapse after the chances from 5-3* .

Through to round 2 after a 3 set win 57 63 64

She was forcing the issue a little too much in the decider, but it's very nice to have her start her GS season with a win. Hopefully she builds on the win for the next round(s)

I'm not sure but in Shenzhen they put her withdrawal on "left foot" injury. At least it's what they put in the health report.
