Irina made use of her fortunate draw, but proved that she deserved the quarters by blowing her opponents off the court!

Good luck for tomorrow!

I was able to watch part of second set today of Irina-Candela and I was very impressed with Irina's game, very good serve, powerful back court, decisive. She can take anyone down.

This girl has definitely Top 50 potential if she is able to rise her first serve quota to a consistent level!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

After starting 2011 ranked outside the top 200 Irina is now less than 5 months into the new year just one win away from being ranked in the top 100. Absolutely amazing. She has without question been the biggest success story of the year in Romanian women's tennis, and there are a lot of girls in Romania doing very well so that is saying a lot.

Even if Irina loses her next match to Kuznetsova as expected, the top 100 in now surely only a few weeks away. Frankly, I can see Irina getting comfortably into the top 75 before the year is finished.

Amazing Saw it coming here though, she was in great shape already and the draw was too good not to take advantage of!

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Amazing!!

Who would have thought of that at the beginning of the year? My hopes were on Ralu getting beck to decent results or Bogdan to make some noise on the tour, but irina?

What impressed me most was her routine and coolness today facing a Top 50 player having the big chance of going far in mind and still play like some ordinary match! Outstanding and a great attitude!

We will see how far she can go this year!

MARBELLA, Spain - Having started the year ranked No.234, Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu is poised to break the world's Top120 by reaching her first WTA semifinal at the Andalucía Tennis Experience in Marbella. Before this week's tournament, which is only her third WTA main draw having won her way through qualifying, the 20-year-old had not won a main draw match at this level.

We caught up with Irina-Camelia after her quarterfinal defeat of world No.34 Klara Zakopalova, her first victory over a Top 50 player.

Where were you born and where do you live now?
ICB: I was born in Bucharest and I still live there.

How did you start playing tennis?
ICB: I started playing tennis when I was three years old, my aunt was a coach and I started playing with her.

Tell us about your family.
ICB: My mother Stelotta works for a government institute, my father Paul is an electrician. I have a brother Andre, who is older than me. My brother started to play tennis when he was six or seven but he didn't like it very much; my Mom did a little bit of athletics; my father did kayak canoeing.

Where do you train?
ICB: I am working with two coaches at a club in Bucharest.

Who was your tennis idol growing up?
ICB: Martina Hingis.

What is the best memory of your tennis career to date?
ICB: Winning the European under-16 Championships in 2006 in Italy.

What do you like to so in your spare time?
ICB: I like going shopping and going to the cinema with friends.

Did you do any other sports?
ICB: I wanted to be a gymnast but it was very hard and I also played handball until age of 10 or 11, when I had to decide.

Who travels with you?
ICB: My coach and sometimes my aunt.

What is your favourite surface?
ICB: Clay.

What are your favourite cities?
ICB: I like Melbourne and Paris but my favourite is New York.

And what goals do you have in tennis?
ICB: I want to be Top 100 as soon as I can and the goal is to be Top 10.

Manages to hold on to take the 2nd set!
She needs to gain a bit of consistency, she has a nice game

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Welcome to the top 100, Irina.

I certainly did not see this win coming. Irina has had a great year but this dwarfs all her other results by a good margin. Incredible match. To beat a player as talented and gritty as Kuznetsova in 3+ hours is simply a gigantic result. This is a match Irina deserves to be proud of for the rest of her life.

And it is also the beginning of her career as a WTA player. Irina-Camelia Begu is top 100 now and she is going to remain top 100 for a long time to come. Her days of slogging it out in 25k ITF tournaments are now officially over.

Re: Irina-Camelia Begu Cheering Thread!

Defeating Kuznetsova by 3-6, 7-6(3), 6-4!

I thought it's over after the lost first set, but she always managed a come back with her endless fighting spirit! A great result which pushes her also far into the Top 50 of the current Race!

I don't know what she has changed at the beginning of the season, but she made the wright decisions and now it pays off! Her attitude on court reminds me a lot of Alex', though their games differ much!

She is also a fighter and her run here in Marbella is absolutely comparable to Alex' run in Warsaw! Not to mention winning matches against much more experienced players on clay after more than 3 hours!

Well done! The final result of tomorrow isn't that important to me because Romanian killer Asarenka will probably blow her off the court, but she knows what she has reached and can build up on this!
