I watched a little a bit of her match yesterday since I remembered her last year's effort against Fichman and was quite surprised she took out Kumkhum the day before. I knew she stood a chance against Falconi who has no business being in Wimbledon Main Draw IMO.
I joined early in the 2nd set when she went ahead with a flurry of winners. She seemed to control much of the rallies, hitting winners left and right past Falconi. In one game (I think it was when Falconi held for *3-4 in the 2nd) she came back to 30-40 on her opponent's serve and missed an easy putaway which would've bring them back to deuce. Falconi held and it seemed to have rattled Andreea as she got broken with some silly mistakes and let Falconi into the match. Later on Kania did exactly the same against Rogers - failing to extend the lead over the opponent who was down and out. I left at 5 all and rejoined at 0-2 in the 3rd. It was a tight game but Andreea refocused and after breaking back she seemed to regain her confidence. The result was really never in doubt, her game was too big for Falconi whose weight of shots or lack of thereof put her in huge disadvantage against any decent player.
Shame she has to face Aga in the 1st round as I would have liked her to win a match against a lower ranked player and get some important ranking points. She might challenge Aga for a couple of games but I don't trust she has it mentally to actually beat a top player. I wish her all the best in the future nevertheless.
Thanks a lot for the review, Dexter! I share your opinion that she could have won a match had she been more lucky with the draw. Hopefully better draws will come for Andreea in the future

Re: Andreea Mitu

interview from ProSport http://www.prosport.ro/alte-sporturi...jocul-12815025

What does qualifying for the Wimbledon main draw mean to you?
It means a lot, especially since I came to London completely unprepared. I arrived one day before qualifying and I only trained one hour on grass. I was very relaxed in all my matches.

What do you hope for from the Radwanska match-up. Are you planning to follow a special strategy?
I hope escape my nerves quickly and manage (to play) a good match. The girls -the other Romanians at Wimbledon- told me how she plays and what I should expect from her. It remains to be seen if I can play my game.

I understand you want to attack the Polish [player 's game]
If I won't be nervous and everything were to go according to plan, that's about how things should work out. I will try to impose my game and not wait for Agnieska's mistakes.

How will you try to get rid of your nerves? Do you have a special method?
I don't have a method to overcome my nerves. It's normal to have them a few hours before the match and even at the beginning of a game. I will see how things stand once the match starts.

You're a clay court player because you played more on this slow surface. How do you feel on grass?
I love playing on grass and even though this only the second year I'm playing [on the surface], I could say its my new favorite surface. My game matches up better with hard courts, but I haven't played more on fast courts because for many years I was almost always injured over the winter. In the summer, we tend to play on clay more in Europe.

What's your dream for Wimbledon 2014?
It already came true here, in a way. As a result, I just want to enjoy my first round match. Regardless of the end result, I only have something to win.

One last question. What do you wish for this season?
First of all, to be healthy and be able to train more.

Sounds like a rough past couple of months for her. Glad she put things together in qualifying here.

Re: Andreea Mitu

Ridicolously talented.

I'm honestly shocked to see that there are such raw diamonds on the WTA tour ranked below Top 200. How can it be that such a girl has been flying under the radar for so long? Of course she is inconsistent as hard as she bashes the ball, but so much striking talent and yet to win a WTA match - it's unbelievable.

But her footwork in all honesty is not a weakness, it's an abomination. Andreea, keep fighting and get yourself a good coach. I don't want you to throw away that talent.

Re: Andreea Mitu

She's wonderful to watch when she's on. Hopefully she plays well once play resumes. She was giving Aga plenty to think about the first few games.

eta: Court 2 Tuesday Schedule
11:30am Gentlemen's Singles - First round
Stan Wawrinka (SUI) [5] v Joao Sousa (POR)
Ladies' Singles - First round
Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) [4] v Andreea Mitu (ROU)

Where has she been all the time? She strikes the ball so well. I am surprised she is ranked so low at 22. I hope we'll see more of her.
