Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!
And Monica wasn't tired herself after the traveling and the matches of the week before?
She couldn't deal with her game, plain and simple and she is usually having problems with opponents who are able to get a lot of balls back. She played a smart schedule, stayed injury-free and is therefore ranked where she is, but Alexandra would be my heavy favourite in this match.
The problem is that she wasn't able to play back to back convincing matches for quite some time. There are obvious reasons for that, but an obvious quicky in R1 here will help her to get the win and play her first WTA QF for ages.
