That's an argument you hear all the time, including in skating "The lutz took off from a correct outside edge from my vantage point" . She really needs to keep her mouth shut at times. Ca se crispeaza

I took way too many anti-harassment courses to come anywhere close to what was said in Nasty's defense . To me, Anne looks uncomfortable in that pic with a frozen smile that looks closer to 'please get me out' than actual enjoyment. And then you see a pic like this where he's clearly encroaching on her personal space.

Sori's full presser in english, so that people don't take her words out of context anymore

Defending him as 'these jokes are who he is; he's like that with us, as well' is pretty bad, but still within reason. Speaking on behalf of Anne when she was clearly uncomfortable and bringing in the 'unfortunately many rules that exist nowadays' is just -worthy. The whole issue with hitting on the other team's captain is that you make assumptions about what other people are comfortable with. Using that same flawed logic as your line of defense is idiotic, at best. Especially since I suspect that was Cosac all over again.

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Also... apparently asking if she is ok and to explain what happened is not an okay question for the delicate flower that is Johanna Konta. Ohmygawd let's all be careful not to disturb the delicate flower
But Sori ance again

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Simona

Cirstea lost as expected

Why did Begu not play the 2nd singles rubber ??? I hope she plays tomorrow !!!

Romania needs Halep and Begu in singles and Begu/Niculescu in doubles tomorrow !!!

This will not be easy. And the loser will fall back to Europe/Africa Zone !!!

He made it through one tie. Clearly got over-confident in the second one. Coming back to cuss out the opposing player and coach, though. Such a dumbass

If only she didn't have a long-documented history of crying wolf whenever a match gets away from her because the coach doesn't cheer her on loudly enough while leading or who knows what else...Am not sure suspending the match was the right call, either, especially not for such a short amount of time. Wonder what things would have been like in case Konta was forced to stay on the court and regroup in the GB corner instead. Either way, Nastase is an embarrassment and should hopefully be gone for good after this latest mess. Sori called that one early on "Pu?in ciudat, suspect!".

Also Begu's reaction after the second match: https://www.dolce-sport.ro/sporturi/...icat-ce-n.html

Will be interesting tomorrow because apparently Captain' Ilie is not longer allowed inside the venue so one of the players will have to play the role of captain (they are allowed to alternate depending on who's playing)

Is that a thing? I don't think she can be overconfident against a player that beat her not long ago, can she?

Heather's match could go either way. Did they decide who replaces Irina tomorrow?

I don't have very high hopes for doubles unless we get SiMonica instead.

Re: Fed Cup Romania

Sori looses after drama with Nastase and some theatrics from Konta. Not even talking what's happening in Davis Cup in like South America but even at Wimbledon Victor Hanescu gets insulted and called gypsy the whole match and the umpire does nothing but disqualifies him for not taking it and getting involved with the fans... while in Romania Konta gets to stop the match and take a break whenever she feels like it. Guess that's the difference between the great Britain and a country from the east...

Also it's the second time Nastase gets escorted out of the arena at Fed Cup after that time years ago in Budapest

Anyway, 1-1 was to be expected after Begu's withdrawal. Anything can happen tomorrow now
