Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I must be a big fan of hers because this loss terribly affected my mood. I feel like after my football team just lost a playoff game.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Romanian player losing a final set tiebreak? I guess this has never happened before.



Anyway, it's already a success for her at this rate to hold for such a long match on WTA level. I wouldn't have thought this was possible a couple of weeks ago. Let's hope for a great claycourt season.

It's not about losing the tiebreak, it's about her not being able to win the match without going into the tiebreak or into the third set at all.

I have to disagree about seeing this match as a succes for Alex. It was a huge succes for Medina, instead. When you hold a 7-5 4-2 40-30 lead and you're on serve you are expected to win, not to let yourself dragged into a deciding set. Unless you're a Romanian (see Cadantu - Watson match in AO this year or Cirstea - Watson match in Miami, last year). Same shitty story once again.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I didn't follow the match on livescores, but if it was like that, then she really should have won.

Yeah, making things more complicated than they should is a classic Romanian thing. One reason may be that they can't get a cheap point on serve (at key points) and will always be dependent on the fighting spirit of the other. I'm also 100% sure Simona would have lost a final TB yesterday if it has gotten that far after all the blown chances.

I don't mind losing a final set TB, but in most cases, the match should have been won before that...

Still, I try to make the best out of this and think that playing a 3 hour match was already a good sign. I remember their match at Marbella 2 years ago which was an abolute nailbiter. Alexandra's perfect drop shot to set up MP.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Well, the glass is half full when it's half empty...
If she had lost 0-6 0-6 I wouldn't have minded at all. But at this score I have to say I'm dissapointed. I only expected more, because she obviously can do more.
A win here: 50 ranking points, up 70 places in the rankings and the chance to play some qualies in some high-level events in the clay season (when she'll run out of PR entries), instead of 10K & 25K ITF events.
Her loss: none of the above.

As for the 3h match... She already proved she can do this several times since her comeback after injury (Arruabarena-Vecino, Peng). I want to see her winning 3h+ matches. Besides that, they played like 1h 30 min, then they had a break for almost 4h due to a monsoon, and when they resumed they played for another 1h 30 min, so... plenty of time to recover from eventual fatigue from the first session.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Losing a match after being a set and a break up is something so unusual in WTA? Are you kidding me? I think that losing a set after a break up lead is very normal in women tennis. In fact this is how the things work in WTA

For Patricia Lacranjan perhaps it isn't so unusual.
For good players yes, it's rather unusual, statisticlly speaking

Was a good player. Nowadays all I see is bad attitude and tricks to make her opponents lose. And luckily for her, it still works.
Kvitova, Sharapova, Barthel, Li, Stephens, as inconsistent as they are, are by far better players that that old hag. IMHO, obviously

I don't like her but she's an exceptional player, better at miles distance that all the girls who wrote, even that she has in her 30. The only one who is closer to her from this plate and fad generation is Azarenka.

But on TF, it's ON THE BANDWAGON, OFF THE BANDWAGON.

J/k.

The match ended at three hours exactly

Well, playing Anabel has always gone the distance with Alex; just this time she lost.
