Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Pomezia was actually a good tournament for her. She overplayed her seeding, and got to the final before collapsing in three. Getting in wins should build some confidence.

She's #1 seed at the 25K Tunis qualies. She's has an opening round bye, then only needs to play one match to qualify. She should do it.

Hopefully Raluca will remember she beat Kristina, 61 60, in New Haven in 2009.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Those 10k runs must have given her some much needed confidence. Hope she can keep going!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Btw that doubles challenger win alongside Elena

Plays in R2 vs. Australian claycourt GOAT and 16-match win streak Sandra Zaniewska. Don't know what to expect at all.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Well, still a decent score. Actually, Raluca's results since March have been decent at the 10/25K level.

In Romania we have a word for such a "performance" - "Frectie la picior de lemn" - meaning "Massage to a wooden leg" . It works for both of them
