Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Dulgheru/Gajdosova upset the #1 Double Team Pennetta/Dulko 7-6(6), 6-4

The new Doubles dream team is born!

And with such opposite playing styles!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

And further good news! Cibulkova and Kvitova withdrew from Brussels, so she will be seeded there and can at least reach third round without facing a higher ranked player!

Should take some of the pressure from her!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Lost doubles semi 5-10 in the super tiebreak!
But still an important and helpful experience!

By the way, the main draw from Brussels is out!

(7)Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU) v Polona Hercog (SLO)
Klara Zakopalova (CZE) v Ksenia Pervak (RUS)
Qualifier v Agnes Szavay (HUN)
(2)Vera Zvonareva (RUS) v BYE

Couldn't have thought of a better one!!

IRONY MODE OUT
No, of course the worst draw possible with in form Hercog in first round and "#9 seed" Zakopalova in the second. Please make it better than in Rome, Alexandra and win more than 6 games!

Maybe the doubles results boosted her confidence - I really hope so!

Lost 1-6, 5-7 in first round of Rome this week, wasting 3 SPs in the second set...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Alexandra's draws so far are awful...

1.) She gets the toughest player possible (Petkovic in Brisbane, Clijsters in Sydney, Kvitova in Madrid)
2.) If you think that she faces an easy round opoonent, they are most likely to play the best tennis of the year just when she has to play them (Hercog in Madrid, Morita at AO, Pivovarova in Marbella, Cabeza in Barcelona)

That's how it is so far! OK, her form wasn't tha good either, but sill it sucks so hard when you see Francesca having Pironkova in first round and Ondraskova or qualifier in the second...

Re: Alexandra Dulgheru!!!

Brussels, Round 1: (7)Alexandra Dulgheru def. Polona Hercog 2:6 6:4 6:2

So important!

After that first set I came to terms with Alexandra obviously sucking for the rest of the year and only make some noise in doubles, but like often she surprised me just when nobody believed in her abilities anymore...

The fest set was indeed a deja-vu of the Rome beat-down, but with an even more pathetic BP stats of 1/4 as well as underwhelming service games. I didn't know what has happened then, but with the beginning of set 2 the match completely turned around with impeccable holds of serve which didn't allow Hercog any single BP for the rest of the match!

Since then I've never seen her serving so well (from the live scores):

2nd set:
1st serves: 65%
points won on 1st: 75%
points won on 2nd: 89%

3rd set:
1st serve: 73%
points won on 1st: 81%
points won on 2nd: 50%

Obviously she and her new coach Urpi made out the big weakness of her game and worked hard to fix and improve it. I don't know why it took a whole set to get it together and Polona is of course not the best returner on the tour, but still such an improvement of figures can't be led back only to the decline of the opponent, especially when the opposite was the case till now!
It's nice to see her fighting back and start winning again! hat's what made her so successful in the past and let's hope she can keep it up against Zakopalova who has already beaten her in Doha this year. It won't be easy, but with the boosting self-confidence she can make it!
