It's the same problem which is also visible on the WTA tour. No surprise that many Romanian girls have such big problems with Hard Courts...
I actually heard that the surface in Moldova was a little atypical, not really what you call hard court. However, it's not like the opponents were all in familiar territory and had an advantage over Romanian players.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

And they won their first match against the Netherlands by 2-1:

(3)Romania d. Netherlands 21
Andreea Ghitescu d. Elise Moeyes 62 36 62
Raluca Ciufrila l. Maartje Basten 26 63 46
Raluca Ciufrila/Andreea Ghitescu d. Elise Moeyes/Claire Verwerda 60 62

But lost in the semis to Russia, as expected by 0-3

(1)Russia d. (3)Romania 30
Veronika Kudermetova d. Raluca Ciufrila 64 63
Anastasiya Komardina d. Andreea Ghitescu 62 63
Anastasiya Komardina/Veronika Kudermetova d. Andreea Ghitescu/Jacqueline Adina Cristian 61 63

But still a good tournament, especially because they played on Hard!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Another good result from last week!

Dinu reached the quarters of the 25k in Mallorca as a qualifier and beat there #211 Severine Beltrame!
