2009 Tournaments Thread

I thought instead of just lumping all her results and tournament discussion in the 'Cirstea' thread we could have a thread dedicated to her performances in 2009 (excluding the Slams which warrant separate threads). I'll continue to update this initial post throughout the year as a guide to her year.

Sydney International:

1R: lt Safina 2-6, 1-6

Australian Open:

1R: lt Czink 2-6, 2-6

Open GDF SUEZ, Paris:

1R: lt Dechy 2-6, 6-1, 2-6

Dubai:

1R: lt Ciblkova 4-6, 2-6

Indian Wells

1R: Bye
2R: lt Vesnina 7-5, 2-6, 3-6

Sony Ericsson Open Miami

1R: lt Koryttseva 2-6, 1-6

2009 W/L Record: 0-6

Re: 2009 Tournaments Thread

Wow this first thread sure does look bad. I hope she'll start balancing the w/l record soon.
I think she'll play Dubai next week...

Why didn't she play Pattaya instead? She seems to be making things hard for herself.

Maybe GDF was more convinient geographically speaking
She said in her R1 interview that she was struggling but that she was feeling her best tennis will come soon...Wait and see.

Re: 2009 Tournaments Thread

I don't know what to say, she is not feeling very well. She had to retire from her doubles SF in Paris because she was having problems with an older injury. I hope she's fine...

Well that's just great!

Is she a chance? Normally I would be positive but given her form and some of the wins Cibulkova's had this year, I'm not overly confident. However she's bound to get a win at some time, no better time than now.

Arina? Interesting decision. Why isn't she playing with Niculescu? Not confident about this one either; Maria/Aga make a pretty formidable team.

Dominika pulled out of Pattaya due to virus disease. If she is ok then it will be very tough for Sorana.

Re: 2009 Tournaments Thread

^Yep. She's seeded 32nd

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
