The horrible errors are continuing in the 2nd set.

Sorana's 'Australian Adventure' will be a short one if she continues playing like this.

Re: 2014 Australia adventure - Go for Top 20 (Cheering Thread)

Terrible play . I think she played better even against K. Nare (USO)

All hail to Hanescu and Copil (ATP) . Didn't expect them to be 10 classes over the 3 girls this week. Let's hope the Niculescu doesn't follow the pack.

Re: 2014 Australia adventure - Go for Top 20 (Cheering Thread)

She made a personal record on UE this match Maybe, in the next tournament will correct all the mistakes and will be more accurate in shots.

Pathetic
Not the first time she lost to Bitchman

If she keeps playing like this, she will end the year out of the top 50 for sure

Re: 2014 Australia adventure - Go for Top 20 (Cheering Thread)

Thank God I was fully convinced that there are no streams for her court. I need to be fit for tonight.

If I want to watch someone hitting home runs, I better stick to baseball.

Watch her reaching Sydney SF next week.

What's the excuse now Sorana? Are you still injured?

Sorana "The Icecream Princess" Cirstea is a very constant player - she's never passed over the first round of her first tournament of the year.

Yeah, but it's one thing losing to Safina, Pennetta or even Watson, and it's another thing losing to Sharon Fichman...

Doesn't matter! I think that she would lose to Raluca Olaru or Elena Bogdan.

. I think that she would have lost even to one-handed injured Edina Gallovits-Hall this match.

Bad decision from myself to watch this so-called "match".

Re: 2014 Australia adventure - Go for Top 20 (Cheering Thread)

I have only seen Sorana winning three matches so far in her career sticking to pure BBB tennis despite having an off-day.

The first one was against Stephens in Dubai, the second one against Vandeweghe in Stanford and the third was against Kvitova in Toronto. It goes without saying that either opponent stuck to the same game plan, but lacked even more errors.

However, there were many times Sorana started in full BBB mode, but changed to a much more sensible and moderate game style after dropping the first set like she did this week. I'm pretty sure she could have done that this time as well, but it seems to me that it costs her so much energy and discipline that she can't be arsed to do so in the R1 of a MM in the first calendar week of the new year.
