Less-than-ideal start, but hopefully they can bounce back in the second.

Raluca is so pretty, like a true Princess in that dress, Princess Ralu

At first , I thought you were referring to the match dress from that wonderful 144p stream .



After the 2nd set, I thought they will win but , oh well..... GL at RG (hoping she makes the MD)

Yeah, Pliskova's playing out of her mind. That serve was untouchable when on. Still, nice to see them playing better in the second set and having a good run here.

Well yes, especially Raluca started to make some good points in the second set. It was like all mistakes for her in the first, I was starting to fear that Shahar might freak out on her. Deserved win, most of all for Pliskova, not much else to say here...

That would have been understandable, but instead Peer actually walked over at least twice after a double fault and an awful return to slap hands and offer reassurance. One of the nicer partners Raluca's had lately.

You are right, I had no idea who withdrew! Raluca and Vekic are the only ALT team to make it

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Probably a dumb question, but since Raluca just had 180 points added to her total ranking pts, does that mean the 2013 Nuremberg final hasn't dropped of yet since it was held in June last year? So she's essentially counting two Nurembergs in her ranking now?
