Once again, Alexandra has amost killed me by watching the live scores, but in the end she managed to prevail for one more time!

The stats look pretty solid with more than 60% first serves in and more than 50% points won on both, the first and second service!
BP conversion sucked a big time with only 4/13 (0/6) afetr Alison's first two service games!
3 aces, 5 Dfs, 2 of them on MPs in the final tie breaker, sorry for my finger nails...

Still, she progressed after the hilarious 4-6, 7-6, 7-6 against sucky Coin from last year and won her first grass court match in straights and her first matches on every surface are a hot and nervwrecking mess anyway...

But one thing became obvious again! She total lacks the self-confidence and composure to close things out early or to take her chances which you can see on her slander on BPs also one at 4-4 in the second set! and the epic tie break chokery! But still she surprised me and won it in the end in straights after wasting her first 4 MPs!

Let's hope that this gave her some confidence back and good luck for the next match!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Hertogenbosch, Round 2:

(7)Roberta Vinci def. Alexandra Dulgheru 6:2 6:1

48% first serves
0 Aces, 6DFs

No words

Of course, grass is her least suitable surface, but if you have problems with your serves, you should at least try to maintain a high first serve percentage, but today it was simply awful...

Only the drawing God can beware her from a first round exit.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

But luckily, that's a long time ago!

In her only grass court match this year she won 4 games against Hlavackova...

EDIT: Alexandra's 2011 drawing curse reappears and the actual fortunate draw Vinci turns out to be the big favourite to win in Hertogenbosch...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Of course Vinci won in Hertogenbosch!

By the way, Alexandra second on VIP court 19 tomorrow!

Please beat Jill, otherwise we already know who will be the 2011 Wimby champion!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Wimbledon, Round 1:

Alexandra Dulgheru def. Jill Craybas 6:2 6:4

Decent effort from Alexandra!

To the match:
Alex tried hard to choke it away once again when serving out a match, wasting a set point and then even had to face a BP, but she prevailed and won in straights!

When I checked the scores for the last time, Alex had circa 80% first serves! (compared to 48% against Vinci last week) and won ca. 70% of all points on her first service!
The second one still sucks as hell with only 30% , but luckily she didn't have to go for it too often...

Good luck against Sveta now!

She has nothing to lose there!

I wasn't sure at all she'd win, so it's pleasant to see

GL against Sveta. I actually like them both, so..

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Sveta struggled to win over Zhang, who is a bad player IMO i don't wanna be too optimistic, but i think she has her chances

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I agree with you about Zhang but since I didn't pay much attention to this match.. maybe she played really amazing. Alex definitely has a chance there

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I'm very cautious with Alex concerning match ups against higher ranked players at the moment...

The last time I was so confident against Zvonareva in Brussels, she only won one game, so

She seems to struggle a lot lately against Top 30 players and I have the feeling she has a bit of a "Why should I care when I lose against clear favorites, no matter if I win 3 games or more, loss is loss" attitude...

If she wins 5 games, my expectations are fulfilled, everything more is a bonus. Actually I'm rather looking forward to see her playing live!
