Cirstea surging from a hopeless position to beat the Wimbledon champion and stand on the threshold of finally breaking into the top 20 is the stuff of Hollywood scriptwriters after a liquid lunch.

Can she do it? 33 years old and has just kept plugging away getting tantalisingly close over the last couple of years. IJBABP is possible against Paolini of course (which would be cruel for the phorumite  who invented IJBABP.)
Speaking of mes, will he leave his swimming pool and appear on the phorum if Sorana defies the passing of time and reaches the Dubai final today

Oh dear

She has lots to defend from the Sunshine Double and is not playing next week, so this might be a now or never chance for her today. I'm not exactly sure what others are defending though.

Definitely was feeling that pressure in the first set.
But this set is a break-fest and she breaks again!

It's 4-4 (having been a point away from 6-2, 5-2 down)

Now, by the power of Greyskull seize your destiny Sorana

Saves her 7th match point in 2 days Grin
She loves that edge of the cliff thrill doesn't she? Better than caffeine
5-5

Overcoming the phorum jinx would be even more impressive than coming back from a set down and 1-5 against Marketa.

Sorana never does things the easy way. maybe at the US Open she will finally achieve the top 20

She's certainly in form so no reason to write her off repeating or even exceeding what she achieved in IW and Miami last year.
PMA folks!
Report SamuelMertensBertens February 23, 2024 3:16 PM GMT
To repeat it for both is a gigantic ask. However a good result in IW could be enough for top 20. And being a seed will help a bit as she will only need 3 wins to repeat her result from IW last year.
