Tsarina Alexandra Romanova Cheering Thread!
 
This player who shares the name with royalty is someone to keep on your radar.

Born: 4/30/1993

Alex had an incredible end to 2011, capping with her first singles title, and first two doubles titles, all within two weeks in Djibouti.

She has stumbled out of the gates so far in 2012, but was given a wild card into the main draw at the 25K Moscow. Perhaps that's where she'll turn it around.

Her high ranking, reached this week, is #520.

Alex is #2 at the 10k Alger, her first tournament since the 25K Moscow in Feb. Her opponent is Chloe Paquet.

I've been following Alex as well, but feel as though she's a step behind a similar Russian in Artamonova.

Let's hope she can make at least the semis this week :yeah:

^ This is very true, but she seems to be making the most of things. Soon to be Top 500.

First round, easily defeated Chloe, 60 63. Now faces another Frenchie, Fiona Gervais.

Defeated Fiona, 62 63.

After two easy opponents, comes the real test. #5 Alina Wessel defeated Alex last year.

Alex got revenge on Alina, 60 46 64! (I wasn't really expecting her to :o )

Semis: #4 seed Yvonne Neuwirth. First meeting.

Good work so far ;)

Big semi next.

Yep. Yvonne ran her down, winning 76(4) 46 61. Oh well. Possible rematch in Tlemcen next week, where Alex is again #2 on the entry list.

Shame. Seems to have run out fo steam in the 3rd.

Another SF next week would be a good result to start building a nice year.

Re: Tsarina Alexandra Romanova Cheering Thread!
 
^ Yeah, but would like to see her hold her seeding. Very big on that. In other words, if you're #2, get to the final.

I 100% agree, however before her results at the end of last year, she was always very insistant. So even making semis week in and week out would be a step in the right direction for Alex.

Final next week ;)

#2 seed, Tlemcen. Alex received a bye in the first round (this tourney is so weak, there wasn't even a qualy draw). Anyway, she double-bagelled local girl Sofia Benhalima in the second round. First real challenge was Danijela Tomic in the quarters. Alex wore her down, 64 46 60.

Semis she faces Johanna Hyoty, who upset #4 seed Alina Wessel. Go Alex!

Great chance for a final here, c'mon Alex ;)

Tennis Fool Apr 13th, 2012 10:20 PM

Re: Tsarina Alexandra Romanova Cheering Thread!
 
Another great tournament for Alex. Defeated Johanna, 62 62 in the semis, before falling to #1 Danka Kovinic in the final, 26 26.

She needs a nickname to distinguish her from all the other Alexes on the tournament. I say, AleRo :cool:
