She's been trying to change the style of game from a opportunistic - defensive one for at one more offensive in order (at least is what I think) to have better results on fast courts. But, here in Romania we have an phrase: "The enemy of good is better" .

Seriously, it's like they all are already happy with what they achieved. It's only about some tennis players, but they have the legendary talent of doing everything, but literally everything wrong when they are up. Coaches, scheduling, priorities, it's pain...

Alexandra was injured as well, so this could also play a role, however, the media might do its part with hyping every athlet who is doing some noise because we are actually looking for a new national 'hero' and athlets were always the ones filling that gap.

Thus said, many athlets, soccer players even more, think they are superhero if they shoot a goal or so...

Many just don't have the head to make it, look at Olaru who completely gave up on the sport (more or less) or Luncanu who won Orange Bowl as a junior and just let himself go afterwards, preferring donuts over tennis sessions...

However, this is more about personalities and not about nationalities, so it might be more of a co-incidence...

Yes, I agree.

However, she isn't a natural offensive skilled player. The idea is very good to come to the net more often, but at the moment, she has neither the accuracy, nor the power to open up the court against a good mover like Christina...

And her placement and volley technique were pure comedy. I'm still speakless that she completely gave up on her backhand wing, where is the 'De Los Rios' backhand gone? Not any against McHale...

Me, too. The day I stop criticizing her will mark when I don't care about her anymore...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

(10)Alexandra Dulgheru def. Andreja Klepac 6-4 6-4

Had SP in the first at 5-3*, messed it up and even had to save the very first BP at 5*-4
Had 2 SPs at 5-2* in the second, wasted, of course got broken on Klepac's only BP in the second set.

Whatever, return game must be truely awful, only 37% points won on Andreja's second serve, seriously?
Her own serve has been quite decent, though, only got broken once in the whole match.

Arvidsson next who steamrolled Kirilenko, but she shouldn't be too afraid because Kirilenko's performances here are questionable, though...

Q-spots in the draw suck anyway.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Worse percentage on the opponent second serve could mean that she took more risks on second serve but mostly failed
If she'll qualify I wish her playing Lisicki
