Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Good news all around these past two days.

50k in Bendigo
first round Daiana Negreanu (ROU) d. Varatchaya Wongteanchai (THA) 46 52 Ret.

10k in Heraklion
first round Nicoleta-Catalina Dascalu (ROU) d. Kasandra Kozub (POL) 61 63

Both of them have winnable matches in the second round, as well.

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

What a great "win". I can't believe she was directly in the MD of a 50k

Looks like it from what I've seen on the wta website. Previous best was a win against Maria Fernanda Alvarez Teran of Bolivia when she was ranked 295.

Benefits of late withdrawals and location. It's nice to see a Romanian girl take advantage of this --for a change .

Nicoleta Dascalu made the QF in Heraklion, so I didn't jinx her by saying it was a winnable match.
Nicoleta Dascalu (Rou) d. Lauren McMinn (Gbr) 6-4 6-2

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Patricia Tig and Raluca Platon are both in the singles semifinals in Antalya. I never saw Tig before, but she looks *a lot* like Simona Halep in this picture. Maybe she can start playing like her .

In this photo I admit she looks a bit like Simona, but the physical resemblance stops here Patricia is thinner and taller than Simona (she is 1m82 tall). But she's a sweet girl and she's definitely a fighter. Was as high as no. 393 in the WTA Rankings, but then she had some back problems (yeah, just like Simona), and her 2013 season was pretty much a fiasco. But she will definitely be at least a top 50 player if she stays healthy.

Btw, Ioana, she has her own thread on Tennis Romania

Thanks; I didn't notice it before .

Good day for Raluca's in doubles today. Besides Olaru/Paszek's win in Barnstaple, Raluca Platon & Diana Buzean won the doubles final in Antalya. Buzean was off for over 2 months after the 25k in Mamaia, but it looks like she's back now.

Raluca Platon (ROU)/ Diana Buzean (ROU) d. Ekaterine Gorgodze (GEO)/ Pia Konig (AUT) 3-6 6-3 10-5

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

10K Antalya final:

(8) Patricia Maria TIG ROU d. (5) Raluca Elena PLATON ROU 62 42 ret

This was her second final loss of the year. However, she'll be back into the Top 500 with her play here.

Again, it's that period of year for making analyses. 2013 has been Simona Halep's (sensational) year and even she hasn't reach yet top 10 WTA and at least a Slam SF she filled our hearts with great joy and huge expectations for the years will come.

But, coming back to 2013 let's see the Romanian peaks.

Top 10 best tournament evolutions (based on WTA ranking points won)

1. S. Cirstea - Toronto - Final
2-3. S. Halep - New. Haven - Win
S. Halep - Moskow - Win
4. S. Halep - Rome - SF
5. S. Halep - Sofia - Win
6-10. M. Niculescu - Florianopolis - Win
S. Halep - Nuremberg - Win
S. Halep - 's-Hertogenbosch - Win
S. Halep - Budapest - Win
S- Halep - US Open - R4

That top is dominated by Simona, even the best performance was obtained by Sorana with that impressive run at Toronto Premier 5 (her lifetime peak, better than RG 2009). But, this performance is singular for our beauty with no other ones to sustain her ascension to the top. Maybe next year.

Eu n-am cerut să fiu romān! Am avut noroc.

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Top 10 best individual wins (based of opponent's WTA place at the given moment)

1. S. Halep vs A. Radwanska (nr 4 WTA) 6-7; 6-1; 6-2 (Rome - 2 round)
2. S. Cirstea vs Na Li (5) 6-1; 7-6 (Toronto - SF)
3. S. Cirstea vs A. Kerber (6) 6-4; 6-0 (Miami - 2 round)
4. S. Cirstea vs P. Kvitova (7) 4-6; 7-5; 6-2 (Toronto - QF)
5. S. Halep vs M. Bartoli (7) 3-6; 6-4; 6-1 (Cincinnati - 2 round)
6. S. Halep vs C. Wozniacki (8) 6-2; 7-5 (New Haven - SF)
7. S. Halep vs P. Kvitova (9) 6-2; 6-2 (New Haven - F)
8. S. Cirstea vs C. Wozniacki (10) 5-7; 7-6; 6-4 (Toronto - 2 Round)
9. S. Halep vs S. Stosur (11) 6-4; 4-6; 6-2 (Cincinnati - 3 Round)
10. S. Halep vs R. Vinci (11) 6-0; 6-1 ('s-Hertogenbosch - 2 Round)


An year with 8 top 10 wins for our girls is amazing. You can see once again what impressive was Sorana at Toronto with 3 top 10 wins plus one against Jankovic (nr 15 at that time, in top 10 now).

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Good summary.
I expect the other girls to be jealous/motivated by Simona's success.
So the best is yet to come for Romanian tennis.

Cetkovska Voegele Shvedova Paszek Hampton
Olaru Bara A. Bogdan ---Bates Feldenkrais Schneider

Re: All Other Romanian Girls Thread

Is the Ioana Bogdan who went to Antalya and is playing doubles with Ana related to her? She seems to be from Sinaia, too based on her twitter account, so I would think that's a real possibility?
