Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Ugh out of all the Romanians, Raluca is my favorite. So sad to see her in this mess. Come on girl. Pick yourself up (again)

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

The thing about Ralu is that she does have a very safe plan B with her spinny shots. So even if her confidence is low & she can't attack, she should be able to win some matches just based on consistency.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Ralu often had bad luck with the draws! Look at her season activity and you will see that most of her defeats went over three sets, what shows that she often lost very close matches. She partly showed her talent in battles against good players like Sharapova, Kirilenko or Li, but in every performance she has at least one set, where nothing works out for her. A pity on that and good luck for the next season!!

As much as Gallovits, Niculescu, Halep and Dulgheru improved in this season, Sori and Ralu fell down in the rankings.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Yeah, she lost 4 and 1 to Leticia Costas-Moreira, a Spaniard I've never heard of.
But this girl must feel right at home in these small Spanish clay tournaments...

Really bad year for Raluca.

Confusion will be my epitaph
