Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I hope so. Apparently the cut-off is gonna be around 220, so she has a chance...

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Horrible horrible loss to number 632 WTA.

6-7(5) 6-7(4) after holding a 4-1 lead in the first set and then was 4-1 and 5-2 up in the second.
4/16 BP. Now that's a match to make daddy Dron proud!

Stupid much?

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Give me your number Raluca and I will arrange a shrink appointment for you. And maybe we can have a nice dinner afterwards.
Win-win-situation.


As expected that big interview with WTA only rose the pressure on her shoulders which is now leading to another inevitable break-down.
She is so fragile mentally, it defies belief.

Whatever slump Panova is in at this time, Olaru is in an even bigger slump for more than 3 years now.

I would like to see Raluca taking this one, but i really don't think that's going to happen.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

First of all, CONGRATS to Raluca for earning her spot in the qualies of RG, her first appearance at the FO since 2011.

She drew Panova, who she played only once-- at RG seven years ago in the second round, when both were 17! Alexandra won that match, and she is currently also ranked much higher. Both players are not in their best form, so Raluca does have a chance for the upset here.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Lost 5-7 3-6 Seems her confidence is shot after being double bagelled by Cadantu.
