Re: Fall Season 2013 - Top 20, here she comes!

Ordinary day in Romanian Tennis:

Hanescu losing from being a set up in consecutive TBs, extending his final set TB loss record to new heights.

Begu battling it out and losing in 2 hours against a player you never heard of, extending her UE record to what feels like three digits

Sorana bringing stupidity and brain death to a new level when close to break in to the Top 20, setting a new low for personal embarrassment.

Re: Fall Season 2013 - Top 20, here she comes!

There is a big difference here :


• Hanescu (#75 ATP) played with a top 20 ATP player on his least favorite surface. We also couldn't see this match (from the statistics looks very good)


• Begu and Cirstea (#21 WTA) played with players ranked below top 100 ,on their favorite surface. (from the statistics look very awful)

Re: Fall Season 2013 - Top 20, here she comes!

I guess you understood me the wrong way. I was just pointing out that the losses of all three of them are trademark-like in the way they came to be.

Hanescu must have the worst final set TB record of any currently active tennis player. I can remember him throwing away tons of matches in TBs, also against higher ranked opponents. He also loses regularly (against higher ranked opponents) from a set up, nothing new here. He played a good match today, but it's a classic Hanescu scoreline.

There has been enough said on Sorana and Irina-Camelia.

I always try to convince myself that I'm looking through coloured glasses and therefore think of Romanian players being mentally more instable than players of other nations, but it isn't. Then again I wonder how they went that far in the first place - there must be talent - there must be game, but how to shut down the choking and learn to control the own temper. It's a tough task for all of them.

Re: Fall Season 2013 - Top 20, here she comes!

Ai dreptate.

"Mentalitatea de roman" ca sa folosesc un "cliseu". Asta e, trebuie sa ne obisnuim .


Oricum, zic ca se datoreaza si presei , televiziunii si oamenilor prosti din tara asta care au o influenta mai mica sau mai mare asupra jucatorilor. Hanescu zicea intr-un interviu ca a fost si este afectat uneori de treaburile astea si intr-un fel e si normal poate. Sunt destul de convins ca in alte tari nu sunt "tratati" ca aici .


Ca si exemplu il dau pe Andrei Pavel care s-a mutat in Germania si s-a vazut . Daca statea (si implicit se antrena) in Romania, nu cred ca ar fi ajuns unde a ajuns . Ar trebui sa-i urmeze si altii exemplul poate (dupa posibilitati - daca exista)

You are perfectly right here! This doesn't happen only in tennis, it's wide spread trend in Romanian sport. I don't know the real reasons but I incline to believe it has to do with how are we raised (family, society...). We kind of see only 'partea goala a paharului'.
About Hanescu, quote from http://www.treizecizero.ro/news/esti...-drept-raspuns
Hănescu a fost aspru criticat în multe rânduri pentru că nu exprimă nimic pe teren, că nu-și dă interesul pentru victorie și că nu arată emoție. I s-au pus o sumedenie de etichete, iar Cristian Tudor Popescu a scris despre el că și atunci când câștigă se comportă de parcă ar pierde. În cazul lui însă, explicația vine din traseul pe care l-a cunoscut cariera lui, din felul în care a fost crescut la juniori și din faptul că n-a avut pe cineva care să-l învețe tot ce-ar fi trebuit să știe încă din primii ani de tenis. Într-un interviu foarte onest oferit pentru Adevărul acum ceva vreme, Hănescu explica faptul că în România nu se vede decât latura negativă a problemei. “Nu-ți zice nimeni: Bravo, Hănescule, pentru ce ai reușit! Nu spun că sunt perfect, dar așa a fost sistemul în care am crescut. În străinătate se lucrează cu psihologi de la vârste fragede, îi învață cum să gândească. Eu, în România, nici nu știam pe ce lume trăiesc. Pe afară mi se spune mereu: Ce carieră deosebită, ești în primii 50 din lume, bravo! Acasă mi se strigă pe stradă: Bă, Hănescule, mai câștigi și tu un meci? Normal că te apasă toate lucrurile astea”.

Re: Fall Season 2013 - Top 20, here she comes!

Sorana has withdrawn from Luxembourg. It has been a long season in which she played many tournaments.

She doesn't speak of an injury, so I guess she just feels drained.

Let's see what 2014 will bring for her.

Playing in the Caribbean in European autumn and making money by that - can't blame her.
