Unimpressive results at the two big US events, Eddie Herr
and Orange Bowl
Marculescu reached the third round at the Orange Bowl U18's and Corneanu the same at OB U16's
, losing a very close one (76(4) 76(4)) to the eventual winner Katie Volynets.
Some photos from the Orange Bowl:
Another year passed. Definitely the hardest season so far, pushing through injuries and making it through them. I had some tough matches and also some tough losses but that's the life of a tennis player. I also had great moments with handsome people. I love all of you who were part of this year. Next season is another chapter of my tennis career, with more maturity, more motivation and more trust in myself. I'm not done yet. 2017 get ready. I will be��������
On top of all the bad results she needs to readjust her own expectations since she was doing so well when she was still doing U16 events. Definitely has the ability to do it, though. Hopefully there's enough funding to go around since these things can take time
Pretty strong message from her after another poor result at the Orange Bowl.
In any case, she's almost 17 now and her juniors ranking isn't good enough to play slams. We might see her move on to 15k's next year, kinda like Andreea Rosca did...
Just wait till I come back
Just wait till I find my powers again
Just wait till I taste a little of the victory and it will become an addiction
And the motivation will be bigger than ever
Just wait till I'll play my game
Just wait till I raise.
Just be there,
And I'll promise I'll come to fight.
