Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

I agree. She has entered every small MM she can get now: Cali, Bogota, Monterrey and Acapulco and of course she knows best that there is still a Mandatory QF from Miami waiting to be defended in nearer future.

There is definately a lot of rivalry in the Romanian team, especially Alexandra who is probably the most distanced towards her other compatriots and used to be the best for quite a time isn't happy with her current national ranking, therefore the change of coaches, therefore back to the roots of playing smaller clay tournaments and to optimize the preparations for her mission probably also a withdrawal from Fed Cup because of an 'injury'.

Yep, I still don't buy that and today's score is more or less proof enough and the fact that Irina only mentioned Monica on her twitter when someone asked about the team changes speaks volumes as well!

Wow!!! That is very intriguing stuff.

It is going to be a Battle Royale between Alex, Sorana and Simona over the next few months. Possibly even Irina isn't completely safe of her place either. I think this situation has really got all four of these players very focused to get as many ranking points over the next few months as is humanly possible.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alexandra has good chances, though. If she can get herself back into the Top 50 playing decent matches, I can't see the Romanian Tennis Federation dropping her after the success she had in the past with her 2 Premier tournament wins and the hype which was made out of that.

And Alexandra is despite being still young, already one of the most experienced + at her best she is definately among Romania's Top.

Gosh, we are talking about big rivalries in view of the Olympics and they are still stuck in World Group II in Fed Cup!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

It's scandalous that Ukraine and Switzerland are in the World Group and Romania is still lingering in the Europe/Africa division.

Furthermore I feel that this will be a good year for Alexandra, she played superb against Crybaby at the AO and only the injury really stopped her from causing an upset.

I hope to see some SFs in this Latin American swing, possbily even a title or 2

I think Alex along with Monica, Irina and Sorana would make a formidable team at the Olympics this year. Personally I think Simona is very overranked and overrated.

Btw why is Alexandra so distant from the rest of the Romanian team??

Good question, I don't know...

Of course she also practices in Bucharest during off-season, together with the others, but that's it. The others are not best friends either, there is always a big rivalry between them, but they get alkong quite well, even do activities together (going to cinema for example) while Alexandra simply has another circle of 'friends' on the tour.

It could simply be because of her personality, but I think she doesn't want the others to look at her card...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Don't tell me she had to save a SP in the 1st set...

I only know she was 5-1 up in the second set. Al Nabhani anyone

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

No, only the one you are probably having. I can't bear it anymore, although it's interesting to see a slow motion of Alexandra D's changed forehand technique and Alexandra C's grunt nicely interrupted by a radio like troubles signal.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Thanks! That is. I hope the second set will be also won shortly by Dulgheru in order to preserve her stamina for tomorrow.

(2)Alexandra Dulgheru def. (8)Alexandra Cadantu 6-2 6-3

Fairly easy after yesterday's mess. I think she didn't have to face a single BP as well!

Dominguez Lino or Panova in the semis!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Inspired by the Great Curcubeu I've tried to find a fairy tales hero for Top 100 Romanian girls.
My suggestions:
Alexandra - The little mermaid ( copyright Curcubeu )
Sorana - The Snow White
Simona - The Sleeping Beauty
Irina - The Cinderella
Monica - Jack

Sorry for my silly post.

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Monica
Yes, I approve of that list, though! Now we only have to introduce those nick names on the board!

Why silly post? There have been much worse discussions in here about making a porn or figuring out why she barely played last year before we knew about the knee problems!

The match against Dominguez Lino should be on 'stream', but I don't know if I can take this again!
