Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

I just take the sensational win from Ilka Csoregi at the Inka Bowl tournament of Peru (G2) as a reason to start this thread where we can accompany talented Romanian juniors on their way to the Top and hopefully to a thread of their own!

I hope for a Golden generation!

Notable Romanian Juniors (2011):

Name/ Date of Birth/ Junior Ranking/ WTA Ranking
Ilka Csoregi/ 12.04.96/ 13
Irina Maria Bara/ 18.03.95/ 95
Ioana Loredana Rosca/ 20.09 96/ 100
Ioana Ducu/ 18.04.96/ 200
Cristina Ene/ 18.12.95/ 234
Srefania Hristov/ 16.09.94/ 273
Raluca Ciufrila/ 18.01.97/ 290
Oana Georgeta Simion/ 08.03.96/ 350
Andreea Gradinaru Fometescu/ 07.05.96/ 588/ 1209
Ilinca Teodora Bercaru/ 09.07.95/ 813

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

By the way, Ilka'sopponent was 3 years older than her and among the Top 100 of the junior world rankings!

Ilka herself turned 14 in April and she beat her 6:4 2:6 6:4!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Look at those stats!!

Tennis Europe Junior Tour, Girls under 16:

http://www.tenniseurope.org/file_download.aspx?id=26240

3 Romanian girls among the best 6, 2 of them in front!

Does anybody know in how far these tournaments count in the ITF-Junior rankings, because Ene for example doesn't have a ranking there?

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Is Stefana Andrei related to Laura Ioana?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Condor de Plata, Bolivia, G2

Second round:

(16)Ilka Csoregi (ROU) def. Manoela Corbellini Chiacchio (BRA) 6:0 6:3
(13)Irina Maria Bara (ROU) def. Natalia LS Abdalla (BRA) 6:0 6:1

Convincing scorelines from both!

Third round will be tough! Ilka faces the top seed Adachi from Japan and Irina has to play against the second seed Nauta from the USA!

They don't.

Pretty sure both Csoregi and Bara will win today!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

But nevertheless a good sign to win there!

I'm pretty sure that Bara will reach the final in Bolivia!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

I am really impressed by Ilka's going up the ranks so fast. Last year she wasn't even ranked and then to win 3 tournaments. Very impressing, and she is not even 14 and wins against players 3 year older than her. I am a fan.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Thanks. I just found this forum and since tennis is my third favorite sport (after american football and cycling) I may post more often.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Condor de Plata, Bolivia, G2:

Third Round:

(16)Ilka Csoregi (ROU) def. (1)Mami Adachi (JPN) 6:2 6:2
(2)Stephanie Nauta (USA) def. (13)Irina Maria Bara (ROU) 6:4 7:5

Ilka once again with an outstanding performance and her 16th win in a row if you also count the results of the last year's season!

Irina
I truely expected more from you here! But to rate her performance I must have seen her play and the draw was very tough, though...

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Condor de Plata, Bolivia, G2

(16)Ilka Csoregi def. Alejandra Alvarez 6:7 6:4 6:4

Semis against Deheza will be tough! But that's not surprising after 8 matches in a row within just two weeks.
