Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Second round tomorrow against Valeria Solovyeva. I know she's the 7th seed, but I don't know anything about her. Is she any good?

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I only remember her having a nice run in Moscow last year, however she really had nothing to hurt Ivanovic.

This is Olaru we are talking about, though.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Come on, I know she's not Azarenka, but I hope and expect her to win at least one more match. Maybe even qualify for the main draw, or even reach the semis who am I kidding?

Now seriously, I really want her to do well this week. It could be a fresh start for her. She was too young and dumb first time, maybe she's matured now and more eager to succeed.

I think it's going to be tough beating Solovyeva, but she has a chance, since she's been regaining form.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Keep it up Ralu!

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Depends on your view of Cohen as a tennis player.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Or Virginie Razzano

Anyway, great result. Hoping for an all-Romanian final, too

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Razzano was coming from the French Open, after defeating Serena in the first round, she was a top 100 player at that time, so I was really pleased with Olaru winning that match

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Wow, a bit surprising with the result, but definitely a good win.

Will be difficult against Cadantu, but maybe Raluca can surprise again
