Doru Roşca, Loredana's father "I'm proud, I'm happy, I'm thrilled"
A former athlete, now coach, Loredana's father revealed to ProSport that he expected his daughter to win the RG title. "She's a perfect girl, always listened to her parents. She went to school, even qualified for the (academic) Olympiad for Romanian. She speaks fluent Spanish and Catalan. My daughter's extraordinary," he said. Moreover, when Doru Roşca was asked if Loredana took up other sports before tennis, he admitted his daughter played handball first, wanting to follow in her mother's footsteps. "She was on Bilbao's junior team, where he spent the first years of high school. She tried to be competitive in the sport where her mother made a name for herself." At the same time, she also went to tennis practice. She choose her (tennis) racquet a year later. Former European champion and several times national champion in the hammer throw Doru Roşca has a single regret. "I'm sorry both girls were promoted too little. They were lucky their final was played in the same day as Simona Halep's, otherwise I don't know how much you'd have written about them. But I I'm proud, I'm happy, I'm thrilled."
I would have figured Basque would be a more likely language given her stint in Bilbao, but I guess Catalan makes sense too.
