Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

It could've been worse, Razzano isn't unbeatable. Hopefully Ralu does it for the home fans

Well, there is only one player that used to come back from such position and she is injured.

Oh well, there was no live feed, so who knows?

"A fost un meci foarte intens - a declarat Raluca. Am avut emotii, dar m-a ajutat foarte mult publicul. Le multumesc tuturor pe aceasta cale si pe toate caile posibile! A fost un sentiment fantastic pentru mine si ma bucur din tot sufletul ca am putut sa joc un asemenea meci in fata lor, acasa. Inca imi tremura si acum tot corpul. Ne doream mult, si eu si ei, sa castig. Mi-am propus sa ma bucur de la inceput pana la sfarsit, sa privesc fiecare meci ca pe o oportunitate, sa-mi cresc jocul si sa vad unde sunt. Familia a fost alaturi de mine si a fost extraordinar sa joc in fata lor si sa fac un asemenea meci. Inca de dimineata, de cand m-am indreptat spre terenuri, am avut un sentiment de bucurie, pentru ca stiam ca sunt acasa, joc in fata celor dragi, in fata oamenilor din tara mea."
Translated by google

"It was a very intense match - Raluca said. I was nervous, but it helped me very much public. I thank them all this way and by all means possible! It was a fantastic feeling for me and I enjoy all my heart that I could also play a match in front of them at home. Even now I tremble all over. we wanted more, and me and her to win. I have decided to enjoy from start to finish, to watch every game as an opportunity to raise my game and see where they are. family was with me and was great to play in front of them and to make such a match. since morning, when I turned to the land I had a feeling of joy, because they know they are at home, playing in front of loved ones in front of people in my country.

7 games against Torro-Flor, much better than expected.
