Much needed win. Kulichkova had *5-3, 30-15 and MP at 6-5* in the 2nd set.

Halep next, tomorrow, 3rd match on Center Court. Live on Digi Sport Romania as well.

Elizaveta Kulichkova will be the Wuhan R1 opponent.
The Russian qualified by defeating Gibbs and Riske with the same score 2-1.
Go Irina !

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

She was playing really good after the first set but seemed she lost focus when she was a break up, especially when she served at 32. Still, it was not like she was playing alone. Cepelova is not a bad player, you don't win against Serena, Muguruza and Halep just by accident. She didn't miss a shot in the last games and Irina was feeling the pressure.

Also I didn't like that Irina didn't shake hands with the umpire just because a few close calls went for her opponent at the end

^ Called it. Sort of...

That ego pampering combined with the final question crawled unto her mind and probably messed up her "i gotta get out of this slump" mentality that she probably started the tournament with.

Lost 3-6 6-4 3-6, after being 3-1 up in the 3rd.

I don't know if it was more the presser, the DF's, or some questionable umpiring in the 3rd as someone mentioned... maybe a little bit of all; but it looks like she may have lost it on a mental level. If it's the presser, she should learn to not give a rat's eye for all the bull* one often gets at these small tournaments interviews.

Better luck next week... Bigger and more relevant tournament, so please prepare well and forget about this.

^ That was some dangerous ego-pampering from the Korean press. I hope it doesn't get to her before the next match.

And I was surprised (South) Koreans don't speak much English.

Anyway... if they didn't want their #1 to get such "beating" in R1, they should have given Irina a BYE.

Good win against the local Hope she can take a revenge in the next round over Cepelova who beat her pretty badly in the only meeting so far.

Press conference after the match... pretty awkward when they asked her if she wasn't "too harsh" today on Jang, the korean no 1

Irina

Still, she lost here in the first round last year, so it won't affect her ranking.

That was really really unexpected, even given her bad late results .

And Tsurenko was even injured. I was very optimistic about R3 when she got this draw ... Oh well ...

I tried to be a Begu fan for the single reason of having a country in common but I gave up, not worth it.

Lost to Tsurenko 06 46, after a quite embarrassing start where she lost the first nine games

Some reports from the match:

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

^ Normally I would say "good draw". But given her latest form, I think we can easily fear Tsurenko. And even AVU. With Cibu being most likely end of the road (if by some miracle she makes it that far). I pray to be wrong.
