Re: Bogdan Elena

She is going to pull a Mergea pretty soon.

Doubles is the only perspective for her, sadly.

Re: Bogdan Elena

Hahaha, she is pulling that Mergea for almost two years now

It wouldn't be a bad idea to sit down with Olaru and start playing exclusively doubles together, form a team, start going deep in tournaments. At least, we'd have a good double for Fed Cup and maybe grand slams.

Sounds like an excellent idea. I hope they listen.

Re: Bogdan Elena

Hahaha, I doubt they'd listen to that.

Even though I know for sure Ema is a modest and down to earth girl (I'm friends with her cousin) and Olaru seems like a good girl herself, vanities can be very big even at this level (take Jill Craybas who's 38, had her share of good times tennis-wise, she's completely out and still won't call it a career). Both Ema & Raluca are still very young and they owe it to themselves to keep trying at least for a while.
But I'd give them one more season to keep trying. If you stay off the horse for a long time it's getting harder and harder to get back on it, and they're both out of form for too long now...

Re: Bogdan Elena

Khromacheva withdrew, so Ema will play agains lucky loser Greta Arn. Still I'm most convinced that she'll lose in the first round

Lost 1&1. Greta Arn could have had an arm and a leg broken and still would have won today
