Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

So, her h2h against Aliaksandra is now even at 1-all.

Faces #3 Valentyna Ivakhnenko in the semis. This is also a player she's 0-1 against.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Raluca has not dropped a set this tournament, and leads Alla, 1-0, h2h [2007 Fes]. So, although #2, she has to be the favorite going in.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

(1/Q)Alla Kudryavtseva (RUS) d. (2/Q)Raluca Olaru (ROU) 67(4) 63 62

There are still a couple of 10k's in Nigeria. She will eventually get a title there.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

75K Eilat.

Raluca has a tough first round against #3 Michelle Larcher De Brito, although Raluca beat her in straights in their only meeting, 2008 USO.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Some goat serving in the first set (7 aces, 95% of first serve points won) and then fell apart.
