Second time she plays Watson



And of course

That first encounter was epic... :lol:
Watson can get a lot of balls back, so if Sorana becomes impatient she'll get in trouble.
Anyway, should be an interesting match. Hopefully they'll put it on center court...

Lmao, that first encounter was where she had that epic brainfart from 5-0 up in the 3rd.

Sorana still should prevail. She is usually starting rather well into the year. Of course she is still able to hit herself out of the contest on an off day in under an hour.

R2 could be very interesting.

GL Sori! :bounce:
Not sure what to expect. Difficult draw. Could be better. Could be worse :shrug:

I expect her to win at least R1 though. I think Hev is very overrated on TF :shrug:
Of course, if Sori has a bad day then Hev will push her way to an easy victory :rolleyes:
In my FITD, I have Sori making the final #deluded :p

3-6 ret. :tears:

Not the best way to start a season :scared:

Well, she had no points to defend this week, so hopefully she'll feel better in Hobart.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year
 
Anyone know what was wrong with her?

Retiring in your first match of the year is quite concerning. I hope she is well again soon. Pity, such a great draw for her this week...

Curcubeu Jan 1st, 2013 12:31 PM

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year
 
Obviously a viral illness. Nope, then retiring is the best thing to do especially in the heat of the Australian summer.

Bad luck, but I hope she is back in Horbat where she can go really far with a good draw.

Hobart

(8)Stephens v Robson
Q v Halep
Q v (wc)Bobusic
Barthel v (2)Cirstea

Defending champion and highest ranked unseeded player in R1...

Curcubeu Jan 4th, 2013 10:09 AM

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year
 
Better for her to get some time off before the Open being sick, anyway.

EDIT: And there is hope Pavlyuchenkova is going to withdraw and Barthel taking over her seed.

Tennis Fool Jan 4th, 2013 02:14 PM

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year
 
Hope for the EDIT, because this opening match couldn't be any worse :o The only other outside hope is that Mona comes in tight, knowing she is the defending champ. Otherwise, Sorana can kiss those QF points goodbye.

BTW, Mona leads the h2h, 1-0.

Re: Sorana in Down Under 2013 - Start of the new year
 
Victory against Barthel, lost against Q or Bobusic - the most possible scenario for Sorana :)
