PS. That second set against AMG in Palermo (6-1) was the best set played by a Romanian I have been seeing till now, better than Sorana's sets won against Stosur or Cibulkova last year. She was really irresistible against an in-form player (who won the tournament eventually), marmelised on her best surface. Why in the name of God she can't play like that more often.
Yep, Irina-Camelia is a mess.
And she is by far the most underrated player on TF. I can't wait for her to pull such a performance against one of the top players. She did play very well against Wozniacki, but afterwards people focused more on Wozzo's flopping than giving probs to her opponent (and losing to Soler-Espinosa the round after didn't help either).
The girl needs a good coach and a little more bite and fire and she would easily reach the Top 20. I must say I'm really interested in her 2013 season.
