Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!
I guess it means she won't play Roland-Garros, right?
It's a big win for her! She's too good to be ranked so low even though she showed she's still fragile mentally. I watched her first match in qualies in Warsaw. She had good and bad periods. She was totally capable of absorbing Stanciute's power (on FH especially) and find the right occasion to be aggressive (on BH most of the time). Then she started to be more passive, she delivered too many short balls and just let it go. It's the main problem to me : she is too dependent on her opponent. Before, she used to be capable of doing everything and she was controling points. Now she is too passive and her serve hasn't improved. I guess confidence will be the key for her to push the aggressive button.
Keep going Ralu!
