Re: Ioana Ducu

She definitely didn't get as much attention as Cristian did heading into this, but it looks like that's about to change. Good for her !

http://www.streamhunter.eu/tennis-li...ing-video.html is my source for streams. Just make sure to have pop-ups blocked. It usually includes the e-tennis.tv streams. Nothing for the Orange Bowl on there at the moment though.

Other than that, it's always worth checking the website of the tournament. Sometimes they stream matches - quite a few of the ITFs in the USA seem to.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

Re: Ioana Ducu

Thanks to Colette Lewis

In the third set, Black was up 4-1 and serving, only to again lose five straight games, with Ducu's variety, and especially her drop shot, proving the difference. Ducu refused to hit two balls at the same pace or height, alternating a moonball with a penetrating backhand, a slice or a volley. But it was the drop shot, executed perfectly regardless of her court position or the game score, that produced winner after winner, and in the final game, with Black serving at 4-5, Ducu hit two drop shot return winners, the final one on match point, giving the 17-year-old her first trip to a Grade A semifinal.

Re: Ioana Ducu

Metropolia Orange Bowl International Championship, USA, GA, S:

(1)Varvara Flink (RUS) d. (6)Ioana Ducu (ROU) 64 64

Two close sets, but not enough. Nevertheless, a great week for Ioana.
