Bogdan Elena

Sixteen year-old Elena is at a career high ranking right now in juniors of #15 but keeps rising.

She won a GA in Brazil in March, beating Chala, Konta, and then Jovanovski in the final and then took some time off (possibly for school?) before returning last week at a G1 in Italy losing easily to Burnette.

Hopefully she is back in form this week at the Italian Open, another GA.

GA Italian Open 1R: [5] Elena Bogdan d. [WC] Claudia Giovine 6-4 6-2

Good start over a wild card, hope she is ready to go now because the real tournament starts. Nadia Lalami awaits her in the second round, haide Elena!

You don't need to go into a player's forum and criticise their game.

I am expressing my oppinion, since iPatty hasn't seen her play. And player's forums/threads aren't only for "Well done" or "Good luck" (Support).

Re: Elena Bogdan (ROU), Storming Up The Ranks!

I appreciate Gigi's feedback, I was wondering how she played.

She is still young and has time to develop her game.

Good luck in the quarterfinals, Lena.
