Nice Victory for Raluca. Disapointing serve (a lot of breaks) but I was positively surprised by her fighting spirit. The victory should help her gain confidence.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Tough match but a good win in the end. Bravo Ralu! Her fighting spirit is back, it's already something to be pleased of!
She won on a bad service day... so there really is room for improvement in this tournament! Good luck against Ani... pretty nice chance to reach a QF again, it's all about keeping consistent!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Unfortunately, Cetkovska/Johansson beat Olaru/Ani 6-3 7-6(1)
It was a good effort though, and Ralu still has singles

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.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Raluca

This score reminds me of the 2006 Bell Challenge in Quebec City. This was where I saw her play with my own eyes for the first time. If I recall correctly, she won 7-6 in the 3rd twice in a row. Her serve would put her in all kinds of trouble, but her grit and determination would ultimately see her through.

Good luck in the next round!

Something under my bed is drooling

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She finally won! Unbelievable! I'd almost forgotten what a Ralu win felt like.

More please!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

This is a Great Victory! Bravo Raluca. I checked: she has almost no points to defend before July!!! This means back to top 100 if she doesn't get injured. Yesterday win may be a turning point in her young career. Who does she play in QF?
