Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Seoul (KOR), QD:

(4)Piter v Kapshay
Yi-Fan Xu v Bonic
Olaru v (wc)Ah Song
Aoyama v (5)Jabeur

Jabeur will eat Raluca alive, if the latter wins her first match.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

The fact that she is entering WTA qualis instead of playing some 25k in Bulgaria shows that she really doesn't care about her singles career anymore.

She can get 6 points as a Q2. For R16 at 25K she would get 8 while playing inferior opponents.

I wanted to say that it's the WTA doubles that attract her most.

She might win one match at WTA qualis drawing a WC like here, but that's about as far as she can get right now. It would certainly pay off more for her to play on the ITF for a couple of weeks where she can actually go far and get some confidence back.

Traveling to Uzbekistan and South Korea shows that money seems to be not the issue right now, but you don't even see her playing those usually weaker events in Russia where your classical journeywoman would get some cheap points. Once her ranking points will drop off at the end of the year from the South American swing 2012, then she won't even get into these anymore and will have to decide if she is really becoming a doubles specialist as she hinted to in her interviews.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Yes, I also thought that part of the reason she is in Korea is that she wants to play doubles with Savchuk or some other girl.
