It's not her ranking that makes her well known, but the story about she came back on tour after her twin sister died of cancer -same type she was also diagnosed with, but was able to fight. http://unseededandlooming.wordpress....ay-in-the-sun/

I wouldn't have known about it either, but their story came up when Kleybanova was making her own comeback from cancer.

I'm sincere because that's how I am. But I suppose you know all the players in the history of WTA , their ID / SSN and what they do everyday.

I am

Erakovic and Parra Santonja are really good on grass though.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Not entirely unexpected for the first match on grass this season, though. Fingers crossed for Wimbledon!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

At least one of them is guaranteed to get to R2 this way . But yes, shame on Venus and Serena for not dropping out of doubles like at RG. Downright uncooperative at times :P

Shame on the organizers who put them seeds with absolutely no reason. But , in a way, they could have met even if kookie+Monica were 16th seeds. Though, if they pass , Suarez navarro / muguruza seem to be a tough doubles team lately , than an unseeded team.

That being said , I have to cheer for Niculescu on this one but just because there would be a chance we could see 2 Romanians in Singapore . . But this is the thing I hate the most in sports : two romanians meeting, especially in early stages.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

The way Moni and Kookie are playing at the big events it's really hard to see them going to Singapore. I actually hope Raluca wins, she needs it more, doubles is her bread and butter now...
