Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

I love how you are implying with your post that Irina-Camelia is playing a serious role this week.

I only hope she survived Christmas better than the past years. Pironkova is a decent R1 draw, though.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Irina's 2012 was up-and-down. The highlight was achieving her first WTA title, even though she ended the year out of the Top 50:
2012: 52
2011: 40

The question is: What is her greatest potential?

As last year, she starts her year in Hobart. I think she has a good chance at defending her points from 2012 by upsetting Pironkova, but Timea or Klara will be more difficult.

GL Irina !
Remember Linz attitude if possible.

No high expectations.

You mean the getting-an-early-5-1-lead-in-the-second-set-just-to-choke-it-away-and-come-back-from-a-break-down-in-the-3rd-set-attitude?

Please not at that late hour for us in Europe.

I'll prefer that attitude to the one showed in Palermo 2011 against AMG "plays-a-top-3-attacking-game-without-any-weeknesses-in-the-second-set-only-for-beeing-bagelled-in-the-third"

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.

First of all, pretty good news for Cîrstea.

Now, Barthel is taking her spot, right?
I would love to see a Barthel vs. Begu encounter.

They have so much in common, to be honest, starting with the coaching mess.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

It's the beginning of the match against Pironkova and it looks like Irina is going to lose (as I expected). I'm going to check the final results in the morning cuz I'm to sleepy now - hope the other girls win!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Losing a set on the WTA with 60% 1st serves in winning 85% of the points on it.

It's ok, Irina-Camelia. We know you are all serve these days.
