It's from training of the U16 team that will go to the Orange Bowl: Roxana Manu, Alessia Ciuca, Andreea Velcea and Smaranda Corneanu.

Speaking of Corneanu, she just had a good week at a G3 in Israel

R32: Oana Smaranda Corneanu d. (wc)Adva Dabah (ISR) 63 62
R16: Oana Smaranda Corneanu d. (Q)Anastasiya Poplavska (UKR) 46 63 75

SF: Oana Smaranda Corneanu d. Giulia Morlet (FRA) 36 63 60
F: Anna Laguza (UKR) d. Oana Smaranda Corneanu 63 64








Also Roxana Manu reached the final of a G5 earlier this month in Fujairah, UAE

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Early exit for the romanians at this year's Eddie Herr U18... and no one even showed up for the other age groups.

Really tough loss for Marculescu. Oh, and poor Selma, she's going from bad to worse.. I feel so bad for her

Eddie Herr, USA, G1
Ann Li (USA) v Selma Stefania Cadar (ROU) 6-1 6-0
(Q)Imani Graham (USA) v Mihaela Lorena Marculescu (ROU) 7-6(7) 7-6(5)
(12)Maria Lourdes Carle (ARG) v (wc)Evelyne Christelle Atticia Tiron (ROU) 6-1 6-1

Marculescu's training in Florida: https://www.facebook.com/21251209550...9884659434726/

Also from a TV show Marculescu went on last month: https://www.facebook.com/generatiadi...1803861297632/

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

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

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��������

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...

Cadar Selma
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.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Just like North Korea who punished their athletes who had bad results with forced labor in coal mines, the romanian juniors were send deep in the mountains for a training camp, immediately upon returning with those unimpressive Orange Bowl results...






Also on a more sunny side of the world and since it's been a while since someone actually won a trophy in juniors, wanted to point out that a couple of weeks ago IMG's Evelyne Tiron won a G5 in Nassau, Bahamas

Goombay Splash Bowl (BAH), G5
F: Evelyne Christelle Atticia Tiron (ROU) d. (4)Yasemin Ada Boru (TUR) 63 64




She's like really close with Bollettieri https://www.facebook.com/nickbollett...54625796087492

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Mihaela Marculescu is the only one playing the aussie Open.
She also played the G1 in Traralgon but lost in the first round. Got no help from the federation... they promised her they will play for the plane tickets but in the end didn't even do that. Obviously in this conditions she's alone there, no coach, not even parents... only Vlad Dancu who plays in the boys competition and his mom. Luckily they received help (housing, practice courts, transportation etc) from a romanian man living in Melbourne.
