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

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Yet another Irina Begu third set tiebreak win (TM) in Charleston After last year's wins against Garcia and Puig, Irina now adds Kucova to the list
Stosur next... they've never played before and I've been actually looking forward to this match-up. Since I don't watch ATP almost at all, this might be the closest I'll get. Sounds fun Good luck Irina

That's why I (almost) never bet on sports . In all fairness, Kiki started to lose it mentally towards the end of the first set. The way she snapped at her mother when she dared suggest she was nervous was pretty funny. Irina needs to find the fighting spirit she had after her ranking dropped a few years ago and she had to go play ITF's for a while. Ideally without having to go through the ranking drop.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

It was similar against Mertens in Fed Cup, for a set and 1/2 it was easy-peasy but then a switch went off somewhere and everything changed

Well the good news... clay season can officially begin for her

Seriously, she looked so in control of that match. And then did one of those mental walkabouts I was hoping she'd put behind her. Guess they're never fully gone by the looks of things . But clay season is close, so she should be more confident full-time for the next few months

I switched to Tig after the second set and that's worked out much better. Still hoping Irina can pull this out in the end, though
