For that one night she magically remembered she was newcomer of the year two years back and could play with the big girls. And now, we're back to pumpkin stage
With a game as big as Irina-Camelia's you are bound to have a good event or at least a good match once in a while, but it's not more than a flash in the pan right now.
It's a disaster to see her ranked where she is right now. She could be Top 30, she obviously knows it herself and that knowledge is increasing her frustration even more to a point that nothing is going anymore.
Let's hope she will stay injury-free in the off-season and get a good coach. She needs some loyal support right now.
