From the short shadows on the court, it looks like this was played mid-day (very late AM or early PM) on Sat.Simona and Julia Goerges did well in their 1st round partnership in Miami. Not sure, was this collaboration a last minute thing? Anywho, I just found the replay on ESPN for Court 6 (Saturday, 3/23). It appears they took out the #2 seeds of Mlad & Babos
Not anytime soon. She may actually drop before USO unless she defends her W and F at Toronto and Cincinnati.Does this give her a shot at regaining world #1 anytime soon?
For sure she'll probably show up in the stands and have plenty of media and public attention even if she doesn't play.Sucks for the Bucharest Open that they are back-to-back, Simona would have been a rather huge draw.
Oh no, she shouldn't play Bucharest Open, although a couple of years ago she only won this tournament and Madrid (Tiriac's).Sucks for the Bucharest Open that they are back-to-back, Simona would have been a rather huge draw.
Yes. She did quite well at Rogers Cup in the past 4 years - F, SF in Toronto (2015, 2017) and won twice in Montreal (2016, 2018).I know...Also Simona has done wonders at Rogers cup recently, hasn't she?
Why Cincci shoud be hard court, correct? In preparation for USO?
Not soon. She'll be #4 on Monday but might not acquire any additional points in the next 4+ weeks. At this point, she does not appear to be committed to play any events before Canada (Toronto this year) -- starting August 5th. US Open Series starts at the end of the month but she has not yet signed up for San Jose or DC at the end of the month.Does this give her a shot at regaining world #1 anytime soon?
