But I guess this is what happens when you mix business with pleasure. And when it's more pleasure than business...
I actually like her coach and he was always very supportive as far as I can remember when she was playing well.

She is 10k level at the moment, so he has his right to be upset.

Sorana wants girls to be treated fair, but she also has to show respect to her coach.

Right, but not proud.

She deserved this loss so much, for not playing any tennis at all & for being a spoiled brat.

Shocking.

Our girls just can't lose gracefully.

Put a little bit of pressure on them and see them fold like a cheap tent.

Did she have a look at the draw? So much fail can't be put in words. Idiotic.

Oh, they can, but when they do it's called winning

Umm... reports and the scoreline suggest this was not pretty. Sori . Hope she gets her game together by the time RG comes.

Re: Sorana's sandbox tour on the clay - join for 2013!

Sorana doesn't deserve any consolation or hugs after this shit. She is a grown up woman, but even my little brother is acting more mature.

She decided to enter Marrakesh. Well, if she is more interested in driving a Porsche, she should have entered Stuttgart.

The only man that is having my pity is her coach.

What pressure? Scheepers game was poor, but still way better than Sorana's.

As far as her looking at the draw, I'm sure she did. I believe Azarenka and Niculescu when they say they don't look at the draw, but Sori is one of those who most definitely look at these things.

I hope I'm mistaken right now, but I predict a downfall clay season for her. And a well deserved one, I might add. If she decides to stop playing childish games with her coach, the umpires or her opponents and focus on serious practice and matches, she may be one day, in that top 20, if not, she'll always have modelling and ice cream.

Just imagine the worst you have ever seen a pro player play and behave on court - that's what happened.

I don't really know, I didn't see it, but the scoreline is really bad and everyone is saying that she didn't look like she was trying. I'm not sure if she was just playing so bad it looked like she wasn't trying, or if she really wasn't trying for some reason. Also, apparently something happened with her coach.

I'm with you 100 percent on this one.

Poor Victor Ionita

The pressure of having an open road to the final and being the favourite in a tournament.

If you look closely, most Romanian tennis players these days play their best when they have no pressure at all or when you least expect it.
Beating Top 10 players in slams R1, then lose to ITF players in R2.

Simona fucked up 2 Fes titles, last year she was the only Top 100 player in the SF. Irina-Camelia reached Marbella F and won Tashkent completely out of the blue, while she was getting routined in every clay tournament she entered as a seed. Cadantu, the same, won Biella 100k out of the blue and reaching Monterrey F, as well as Katowice SF when she was basically a walking bye.
And Alexandra D, her Warsaw titles were also completely unexpected, she was playing her best tennis (which doesn't mean that she was messing up many cakewalk draws).

However, it's just a tendency I noticed. It shows that they all have so much more game than they show.
