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!

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.
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?
