Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Lost to Mertens 16 16 Each match this week she played a really bad set but came back to win the match. Today she was so shockingly bad it was no way she could come back.

Mertens with her horrible pushing only managed to hit 5 winners and 1 ace... Irina's UE's (42) account for 3/4 of Mertens' total points (58)

Irina-beg ruling on Turkish soil no less.

All these 3 sets wins are excellent for confidence so keep them coming. The question is that when bigger clay tournaments will come her game will be fine-tuned or she will be already too exhausted ?

Couldn't believe match was still on when I woke up this morning. Irina did well to close this out in a straight forward third set .

Basak was really toast in that third set, couldn't put up much of a fight. Not a very "pretty" win but good job by Irina to hang on to that second set. SF against Buyublabla or Mertens looks like it's gonna be another tough one with lots of grinding to be done...

Please hold now... This break fest has been long enough.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

She did get frustrated right from the beginning because of the crowd and all those cheers when she misses a serve.

Luckily she was finally able to close out the second set. If she keeps her composure she should win, Basak was really solid so far but seems to be low on energy now. This MTO should help her tho...

Now really reluctant to beat local girl ranked #257 and on her way to blow away another decent draw. Did Erdogan's minions threatened her in case she wins?

Time to say her prayers...

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Flawless tennis in the first set against Flipkens, the english commentator was even saying what a threat she'll be at the French Open playing like that... of course this being Irina it all went sideways after that, especially her serve Idk what she did at the end there (I'm assuming she read a prayer or something) but it worked, she finally held serve in the second to last game and broke to win the match 61 16 63

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Why is it embarrassing?
Doesn't have much to do with the serve imo, the whole match is on Irina's racket but so far Tadde is just moving great all over the court, sending everything back and frustrating the hell out of Irina.

le. Irina comes back from losing the first set 16 and down 14 in the third, to win the match 16 61 75

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

This match with Maria is embarrassing:
- 1st set: Irina cannot hold 1 serve
- 2nd set: Tatiana cannot hold 1 serve
- 3rd set: sadly started like the 1st so I don't like where this is going

As the people from Fed Cup put it, she was indeed Brilliant Begu in this tie and brought the winning point with a win over Watson
But now back to the tour:

TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Cup
Main Draw


(7)Pironkova v (Q)Eraydin
(Q)Kulichkova v (wc)Aksu
Kucova v Flipkens
Maria v (3)Begu

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Lost to Kasatkina 46 16 in what was by far her worst showing against the young russian this year. Her footwork got exposed, her serve was weak, the BH an error-machine... really a match to forget after that great win against Stosur. All in all tho, a really good tournament for Irina to start her beloved clay season

Next tournament [after FC] should be Istanbul. A deep run there could take some pressure of her before having to defend those huge points in Madrid/Rome/Paris

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

What a great win Hard to do something against Irina when she serves like that.. only dropped three points on serve in the second set and overall she only got broken once, in a game where she lost focus at 40-0

Having the presence of mind to hit a winner mid-fall tho

R16: (10)Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU) d. (7) Sam Stosur (AUS) 75 63

Hope she's ok after that weird fall chasing down a drop shot early in the second set. Seemed ok closing the match, which is good news. Also, can we somehow trick her into thinking slow hard courts are actually clay? Think she'd play even better in that case
