Re: Alexandra Cadantu

No chance at all against a healthy Flavia and even against an injured one I wouldn't really fancy her chances. But then again Alexandra wouldn't be a favourite against any player in the draw right now.

So true.

Besides I'd rather see her losing to Pennetta than Olivia Rogowska.

So she gives me the chills when I see her name next to one of my favorites. Then again, I`ve said I don`t hate anyone, and that include Flavia

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Flavia blew mps for a 60 60 win, so 60 62 looks a bit better

Re: Alexandra Cadantu

Alexandra is definitely not fit.

The amount of DFs that have crept into her game is worrying to say the least. 11DFs against Rogowska in a 2 set match and today the same again. I can't remember when was the last time she finished a match with less than 5 DFs, although it doesn't seem to bother her that match when the ball is in play.

On the other hand it may also be some mental issue. She is still suffering from that match against Pova at the French Open of getting exposed like that even though this match wasn't streamed. It's as if she is cramping mentally when facing players she knows are much superior to her (her matches against Kvitova and Katowice or Kerber in Linz come to mind) where she played well below her level because her thoughts were not on court.

13 winners to 36 unforced errors is quite appalling to be honest

That said Flavia is of course the better player and deserved winner.

Cadantu was a mess and broke down in tears on the first match point. It seemed to throw Flavia off and I think the linesmen felt sorry for Cadantu as there were some questionable calls in that 0-5 game.

It was a great win and she should have a good run here with that form (and kvitova out).

If I have to be picky, the things she needs to improve is the first serve percentage and playing the break points better. All the bad points (and there wasn't many) were break points.
given the match report, I am sad it was not streamed

Alex

The loss was almost certain but I expected more games from Alex.

She hasn't played since AO. Where is she now? Is she trying to build some form?

Bizarre indeed that she didn't sign up for any other tournament after AO.
