Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Raluca will play today her doubles matches on court 16 a streamed one.
I haven't seen her for a long time and I would like to see at least few games.
Maybe others are interested too.

Olaru R./Savchuk O. (ROU/UKR) - Aoyama S./Scheepers C. (JPN/RSA)

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She really shoudn't have to focus on doubles.

She could have a top 50 singles game at least if she sorted her brain,

She has to look at what Sori is doing.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Could have played a WTA tournament again had she entered Budapest.

I guess it's just not meant to be.

She will play qualies for Bad Gastein, as a seed most likely... Even so, I have doubts she'll make it into the MD...

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She has such a lovely game but her head has always been all over the place And now with that injury, it makes things even worse. Always thought she should have taken a break and start fresh again.

Raluca played doubles there today.
Grandin N./Martic P - Olaru I.R./Solovyeva V. 6-4 6-2.
Why not singles also.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She's just so confusing

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!

And Hradecka got a walkover in R1 so she should've been the on-site ALT

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Well, she's playing Bad Gastein qualies. The Romanian section:

(3)Olaru v Jurikova
Palmigiano v A.Bogdan
Toljan v BYE
E.Bogdan v (5)Smitkova

Should at least win the first two matches. She's 1-0 against Jurikova, but this is their first meeting on clay.

Which pretty much tells us that she couldn't care less about singles. It's only a matter of time for her to focus only on doubles.

She reached the final in Bad Gastein long time ago. Maybe the memories can resurrect her.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Lenka Jurikova (SVK) d. (3)Raluca Olaru (ROU) 46 64 63

On a positive note, she avoided being bageled in the decisive and even broke Jurikova's serve once. Great job, Raluca!
