Re: Arantxa Rus

Aran won a match!

She beat Witthoeft in Katowice Q convincingly 63 62 I don't get how you can beat Witthoeft 3 and 2, but lose to Vrljic 2 and 2 on the same surface

At least she ended her losing streak

Re: Arantxa Rus

Won 75 63 against Doi in the Fed Cup, captured the deciding point

Playing at 25k Chiasso this week, won 61 60 against Lena-Marie Hofmann and 57 63 75 against Isabella Shinikova

First consecutive wins on WTA or ITF circuit. She choked a 4-1 lead in the 1st set today though.

Re: Arantxa Rus

And she won against Jokic as well: 64 62.
A little self-confidence does wonders, or so it seems. I think she may be thankful to Fed Cup-captain Paul Haarhuis for this moral boost!

Let's see what she can do against Lucie Hradecka.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Lost to Hradecka 16 57, still a good week for Arantxa. Getting some wins and confidence.

Playing 25k Wiesbaden next week.

Re: Arantxa Rus

Arantxa won her first round at 25k Wiesbaden 75 75 over Polina Vinogradova.

I saw the match from 75 53* in the 2nd. Aran had *52, but choked it to 5-all. She made little to no errors, but she was just grinding and hoping for Vinogradova to make an error. Occassionally she managed to force Vingradova into a slice which she hit in the net not less than once. Aran also double faulted like 4 times in the 2nd part of the 2nd set so I wonder how many she hit in total.

Quite some things to improve for her next round. More aggressive play should be the primary focus. Playing against Lucic-Baroni or against Lesley Kerkhove in Round 2.

Re: Arantxa Rus

It seems like self confidence is growing.
Rus didnt only beat Kerkhove today (6-3 4-6 6-4), but after this (seemingly) long battle, she also beat Hradecka convincingly: 6-2 6-4
Nusport commented that Rus was serving for the match at 5-2, got broken (as usual), but managed to finish it at 5*-4. Very nice results today, especially Hradecka is a good opponent, who beat her last week.

Re: Arantxa Rus

I saw most of the match and indeed she played well. Again she was limitting her unforced errors and moving well, attacking when she could. Hradecka was out of sorts for most of the match and Aran forced errors from her with her heavy spin balls, especially in the first set. Aran lead 62 51 when Hradecka started to play better. Aran managed to win luckily

Re: Arantxa Rus

I can't with Arantxa. Watching her semi now against Alexandrova. She was leading 5-4 30-30 in the deciding set. She was one break ahead throughout the entire third set.

Then at 30-30, they were playing a nice long rally, when Arantxa decides to play a forhard dtl, which was only just out. After that she made a DF and now it's 5-5.

Re: Arantxa Rus

She had 3 breakpoints at 5-all, but lost the game

Don't know if she can bounce back...

EDIT: she was down 15-30 in her game, but she won 3 points in a row. Tiebreak to decide the match.

0-3 down in the tiebreak, she is literally getting all calls against her though
