Re: Ekaterina Alexandrova

Alright, so I watched the livestream of Ekaterina's match against Arantxa, and I've gotta say that I'm glad that I did because Kat is pretty darn good. I'd never heard of her before this tournament, but her back-to-back wins over Foretz-Gacon and Brengle definitely made me sit up and take notice, and now that I've actually seen her play, I can certainly understand why she is doing so well in Wiesbaden. If I had to describe her game with just one word, I'd go with well-rounded. She serves well; she's strong on return; she can change the direction of the ball with both wings; she's got good power but doesn't overhit; she's got good hands. The girl might not be a spectacular player, but she sure is balanced. If there was one thing that I didn't like about her, it would have to be her attitude. Honestly speaking, she isn't nearly as temperamental as some players I've seen, but I'd still say that it's a bit of an issue. In the first set, things were going really, really well for Ekaterina, and you could see that she was giving Rus all that she could handle and then some. You'd expect someone playing that well to be yelling "C'mon" every now and then, but instead she was spiking her racket on the rare occasions that she missed a shot. I'm not sure that she knows how good of a player she is, but hopefully she figures it out because she could be Top 100 one of these days. With that said, I've still gotta give her a lot of credit. Yes, her body language wasn't great, but at least she kept on fighting. In the 3rd set, she started to look as if she was getting tired, but she still didn't give in... and she got the W.


Below are a couple pics of her taken when she won the Kreuzligen 10k last year against Bacsinszky.

Re: Ekaterina Alexandrova

25K Wiesbaden final:

(Q)Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) d. Tamira Paszek (AUT) 7-6(4) 4-6 6-3

Wow, Katya! Beyond impressive Seven wins in a row and over some serious competition!

First title of the year, fourth and biggest of her career so far! Will be just out of the Top 300 with this win-- USO qualies looks promising if she keeps up this form!

is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Ekaterina Alexandrova

Prague 100K

She keeps winning

QR1 Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) d. Maria-Elena Camerin (ITA) 64 46 64
QR2 Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) d. Nastja Kolar (SLO) 64 Ret.
QFR Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) d. (7)Viktorija Golubic (SUI) 06 64 62

MD will be though anyhow, as qualies will be placed against #1, 3, 4 or 7 seed.

She will play first seed Safarova in first round. Nothing to lose, a lot to learn.

Re: Ekaterina Alexandrova

She will hit the news now!

Rnd 1 (Q)Ekaterina Alexandrova (RUS) d. (1)Lucie Safaraova (CZE) 64 64

She was a bit shaky probably when serving at 64 53 for the match, had 3 match points but could not convert. But she broke Safarova again after being 30-0 down to win the next 4 points. Biggest victory of her career for sure! Never expected this.
And a winning streak of 11 now, including qualies. Keep going, Katya

Great victory on one of the next best things. Continuing like this, she should be well into top 200 by the end of the year.

Re: Ekaterina Alexandrova

She's in the QF of 25K Essen after 2 great wins over (7)Julia Cohen in R1 (3 & 0) and Michaela Honcova in R2 (0 & 4).

QF vs. Constance Sibille

And I feel too real
