Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!
Yes, I thought the same thing. That was some nice touristic tour of South America for both Ilka and Irina with different countries visited for each tournament.
As for Ilka, since I am a big fan I found on another message board that she had a minor back injury (some sort of stiffness), which forced her to withdraw from that last tournament. She said about 2 weeks ago to a third party that she didn't know where she will compete next.
