Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She has a chance of beating Stephanie on clay especially, but as you say Camerin will be tough....although she may not get past Majeric.

Would love it if she made the MD.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Somewhere on the bottom half of the draw is Cristina Dinu, with a better chance of making it in the MD than Raluca.
She already beat Bratchikova last year in Lagos and I think she can also get past Cabeza Candela. She can easily lose in the first round, as well. We'll see...
But how come this girl doesn't have a thread of her own already?

She's 1-0 against Foretz Gacon, although that was 5 years ago.

Still, it's nice to see Raluca back on the WTA level. She has only 8 points to defend from a 25K she played last year.

A lot has changed since 5 years ago... But yes, definitely good to have her back in the "limelight"

On court now. Score is even a set apiece.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

And they just suspended the match for heat reasons.
Hope this won't affect Raluca's good run.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Lost 3-6 in the third set, I have to say that she did better than I expected.

Final score: 46 62 36.

Looks like Raluca has regained a lot of confidence this year. Hope she keeps it up

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Tough loss, and I would love if she had won, but Stephanie is a pretty decent player, and she seems to be in a better place tennis-wise than last year.

This woman is just embarrassing.

Talking about getting back to tour level. No words.
