Re: R.I.P Florenta Mihai: 1977 RG finalist (1st of the Open era that dies)

So sad, she was a very good influence on all the up-and-coming players from Romania and will definitely be missed.

Re: Vinci's English?

Vinci's English is perfectly fine. She even directed some lost (American) spectators to Court 2 after her qualifying match in New Haven, so it's not like she struggles to understand what's going on...

Re: WWW USO SF: [1] Serena Williams vs. Roberta Vinci

+1. For reference, Serena took quite a bit of getting used to Niculescu's slice earlier this year.

Hope Carlita snaps out of this slump she's in. She's a much better player than this & Mugu was not exactly stellar, either :hug:

Re: USO R2: Pennetta def Niculescu 6-1 6-4

She ran over your puppy didn't she? So pressed over something that's got nothing to do with tennis ability.

Re: Patricia Mayr-Achleitner announces retirement

She didn't sound too optimistic earlier this year at the 25k in Galati, but it's always sad when retirements are forced onto players rather than a decision they make on their own

Re: Wimbledon R1: [14] Irina Begu def. Daria Gavrilova 7-6, 6-1

Injury definitely didn't help, but that mental implosion was not pretty to watch. Dasha :hug:

Re: Players speaking non-native languages (other than English)

If we're going with Romanians speaking other Romance languages, Dulgheru's Spanish is in a different league. She did train in Spain for a while while she was little

Re: Lets appreciate Monica Niculescu uniqueness

Whenever she's on, Moni has amazing reflexes at the net and is really fun to watch. And of course, there was this shot from last year (

Re: Nottingham SF: Monica Niculescu BULLIES [1/WC] Agnieszka Radwanska 5-7 6-4 6-0

Moni on a 10-match winning streak :hearts:. She did complain about her leg bothering her during OCC between the first and second set so hopefully she'll be ok for the final.

Re: 100k Marseille Final: Niculescu d. Parmentier 6-2 7-5

I got a little worried when Moni blew a 4-1 lead in the second set to make it 4*-5, but she pulled it out in the end :cheer:.

Re: French Open R2: (29) Cornet def. Dulgheru 6-2 7-5

She had a pretty bad cold from what she she said in an interview after R1, so I wasn't all that sure she could have done this in 3 sets anyway. Still, that was a sizable lead to blow through in the...

Re: Simona's barmy army

Think once the fans go to several matches, they start to catch on (or they're told by the umpires) what should or should not happen during a point. I completely agree having new fans is a good thing...

Re: Simona's barmy army

I think some of the fans who do things like cheering an opponent's double faults (New Haven final 2 years ago, ahem!) or screaming Haide Simo in between serves just don't know any better. Halep has...
