Re: Ioana Diana Pietroiu

Good choice for a new thread @ioana_sk8r

I was really looking forward to watching Ioana play today. I thought she played great, especially the first set was very high quality for a 10k imo.
Good luck in the final tomorrow

She's lefty, resident of Poland, good counter-puncher, strong legs... everything she needs to be #1

Re: Ioana Diana Pietroiu

Good job to get through qualies at the 25k. Was close also to win a match on the MD but kinda lost the plot after the first set

Btw. wanted to mention this since it bugs me about Ioana... she appears to not care at all about playing dubs Has a horrible ranking since she either does not play at all, or plays exclusively with only one partner, unranked Alicja Zduniak.


$25,000 Zawada (POL)

QR1: (13)Ioana Diana Pietroiu (ROU) d. (wc)Magdalena Zajda (POL) 60 63
QRF: (13)Ioana Diana Pietroiu (ROU) d. (5)Lenka Jurikova (SVK) 63 62

R32: (Q)Valeria Savinykh (RUS) d. (Q)Ioana Diana Pietroiu (ROU) 36 61 62

Re: Ioana Diana Pietroiu

Very good win in the final here . And she played dubs just for you @Not A Fan . With Zduniak, but came very close to making semis.

Re: Ioana Diana Pietroiu

It's really bugging me now, I'm so curios what the deal is there Is it like a faustian thing where she's bound for eternity to play dubs with that Zduniak girl in exchange of becoming a WTA star or what...

Possible QF clash against Bulgaru this week. Could be interesting

I'd go with having the same coaches at the academy in Poland, which would mean they could also split the cost having a coach travel along. But the Faustian pact is also very likely
