First, congrats to Raluca for returning to Wimbledon after a two-year absence! Beating Julia may be difficult, but good luck to her

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Proved to be impossible. Lost 3&4. But taking 7 games to Glushko is a great achievement for Raluca these days, so yaaay!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Not being able to break Glushko's serve once, it seems.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any lower.

But 7 games, closer than expected.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She qualified for Wimbledon in doubles, with Olga Savchuk. Solovyeva is also in the QD with Zanevska. Idk why they didn't pair up once again

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Perhaps their combined ranking wasn't high enough to enter the QD?

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.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Her singles career seems as good as over. She started thinking about retiring because of the lack of financial resources and she developed a chronicle heel injury

Nu pot să mă antrenez ca lumea. Singurul lucru care mă ajută este un «tape» pe care mi-l aplică fetele de la fizio, de la WTA. Altfel, n-aş putea să joc! Din cauza clasamentului, la simplu ar trebui să joc turnee ITF în mare parte. Acolo, după un set, călcâiul îmi cedează. Efectiv, nu mai pot de durere!“.

After one set the pain would become too big after to endure. If it wasn't for a special tape, she couldn't play at all, actually it's already unbearable according to her.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

If she suffers from plantar fasciitis as she hints in the interview that requires about 2 month rest, during which she needs to wear some special shoes.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Well, she is in an awkward position right now. That injury seems to be too severe to get anything going in singles, but still not bad enough to keep her out of the contest, at least in the doubles.

However, she should always be aware of her health.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She really should think about specializing on doubles and I'm sure she will one day.
