Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I just read those 3 or 4 articles she wrote for the Romanian site treizecizero.ro last year, which I just discovered. They may have been already linked to this forum as far as I know, but anyway, I wanted to say that I really feel for her after reading what she went through, with injuries, loss of confidence, etc. I think I'll never criticize her again or dare to suggest that she does something else other than tennis. What do I know? We assume it's all mental, or lack of preparation but in reality it's more than that or something completely different, we never know what these players, Raluca included, are going through.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

50K+H Craiova (ROU):

(8)Tereza Smitkova (CZE) v Agnes Bukta (HUN)
Katarzyna Kawa (POL) v Anna Floris (ITA)
Conny Perrin (SUI) v Ana Savic (CRO)
(2)Patricia Mayr-Achleitner (AUT) v Raluca Olaru (ROU)

Most likely a straight set loss for Raluca.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

It really isn't happening for Raluca and Elena B. in singles. But they really do seem to gel as doubles team and if they committed themselves to doubles solely I bet they could establish themselves on the main tour as a successful doubles pairing. I honestly think at this stage that is the only way foreward.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Tashkent, QD:

(5)Jabeur v (wc)Merenkova
Olaru v (8)L. Kichenok

I suppose she's there for the doubles, but good luck!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Tashkent, Q-R1:

(8)Lyudmyla Kichenok (UKR) d. Raluca Olaru (ROU) 61 64

Six losses in a row now, but I guess five games against any of the Kichenok sisters should be considered a success these days.
