Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

Cum stau lucrurile la Tenis 🎾 pentru #Olimpiada de la #Rio 2016, la sfarsit de an. #Romania poate avea chiar si 9 reprezentanti 🎉 . Detalii :

.
🔸 Criteriul Fed Cup / Davis Cup:

- Alexandra #Dulgheru, Andreea Mitu, Sorana #Cirstea si Raluca Olaru mai au nevoie de o nominalizare. Pt primele 3 mentionate #ITF-ul ar putea face o exceptie conform regulilor,
chiar daca nu mai prind echipa.

- Simona #Halep, Irina Begu, Monica #Niculescu, Horia Tecau, Florin #Mergea, Marius Copil si Adrian #Ungur si-au indeplinit criteriul Fed / Davis Cup.

.
🔸 Clasament: - #simplu feminin:

- Simona Halep (ca si calificata)
- Irina #Begu (locul 31 WTA si 37 intr-un clasament tip Race, de la Nottingham 2015 incoace)
- Monica Niculescu (locul 39 #WTA si 29 in acelasi clasament mentionat mai sus)
- Alexandra Dulgheru (locul 69 WTA)
- Andreea #Mitu (locul 96 WTA)
- Sorana Cirstea (locul 242 WTA)

*** #Lista se inchide pe 6 #iunie 2016 .Ultima jucatoare direct acceptata in 2012 a fost pe locul 64 iar dupa 4 retrageri ulterioare, ultima acceptata a fost locul 70. (*pt tarile cu cel putin o reprezentanta pana la acea pozitie) .

.
🔸 #Dublu feminin:

- Irina Begu + Monica Niculescu
- *** Raluca #Olaru + Alexandra Dulgheru / Andreea Mitu / Sorana Cîrstea. *** ultima pereche acceptata direct in 2012 a avut un clasament combinat de 102, astfel ca, pe langa criteriul Fed Cup va fi necesara si o imbunatatire a clasamentelor pana pe 6 iunie. Mai sunt si locurile #ITF apoi (2-3), in cazul in care nu intra direct, unde regulile s-au schimbat putin.

.
🔸 Simplu #masculin:

- *** Marius #Copil / Adrian Ungur. Va trebui ca unul din ei sa fie in primii 80-85 #ATP la inceputul verii. In 2012 ultimii 3 din Europa acceptati pe locuri ITF, dupa aplicarea criteriului universalitatii (pt tarile fara reprezentanti) au fost pe pozitiile 79 (A.Ungur), 80 si 86.

🔸 Dublu masculin:

- Horia #Tecau + Florin Mergea

.
🔸 Dublu #mixt:

- Simona Halep + Horia Tecau
- *** Florin Mergea + Irina Begu / Monica Niculescu. Este posibila si aceasta formula daca #clasamentele vor fi imbunatatite putin,cuaa strecurarea pe locurile ITF.

* Ultima pereche direct acceptata in 2012 a avut un clasament combinat de 37 iar pe locurile ITF, de 58 dar regula a fost putin diferita. Pt mixt listele se vor face la fata locului totusi, spre deosebire de restul dar se va lua acelasi #clasament de pe 6 iunie.Hai Romania ! 👊 🇷🇴

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

Halep is mathematically qualified.

Olaru has 3 nominations now and is eligible for an eventual participation alongside Dulgheru. Mitu as well, but she has little chances.


Dulgheru needs to be nominated in April for Fed Cup to be 100% sure of eligibility. Niculescu and Begu are well placed in the Race to Rio (still) , while Alexandra isn't but there's time until the 6th of June.

All 3 have medical problems though . It's like someone put a curse on the Romanian WTA girls ....

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

Post #1 has been updated.

For Romanians : What you saw today in the press is about PROPOSED players, not qualified ones. Things are how you see them in Post #1 or if you preffer, read this comment (in Romanian) for more : http://www.treizecizero.ro/news/simo...ent-2576471825

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

It's not that complicated. Simona and Monica are qualified, while Irina has to seriously get her act together She'll probably go down in the WTA ranking during the clay season but she should at least pick up a couple of hundred point for the Race to Rio.

The others can plan their vacations or get their popcorn ready

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

Well, after today's Romanian articles, a lot of "compatriots" surely think that all 6 of the Top 150 Romanian singles girls + Olaru are all qualified .


Monica is not qualified mathematically but she's well positioned in the Race to Rio indeed.

I personally still somehow hope for 4 girls and 2 doubles teams (W) and hope "dies" last, and for Begulescu and for Mergea / Niculescu . I know I know .


Edit: Dulgheru is #74 (eliminating the country duplicates that can't qualify) in the Race to Rio with 395 points. She would have to improve to be #58 , worst case Race to 2016 Rio Olympics - Complete . Mention: Fed Cup ineligible players are not eliminated from this ranking yet, so #74 including those

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

Post #1 updated.

Niculescu almost mathematically qualified. Begu, very close too. But two new names come into discussion:


Could Cirstea or Tig make a final push in Roland Garros (and 2nd week of RG) and sneak in as the 4th Romanian ? For Sorana there would definitely be made an exception by ITF, because of the "Strenght of Nation" rule. For Patricia, who has 0 nominations, I don't know tbh.


Also, maybe a surprise doubles team such as Mitu / Olaru, also with a final push in these weeks ?

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016)

^ The backlash of Simona's success: tennis may be perceived as a rather female sport in Romania. --- j/k : of course it has nothing to do with the poor performances of our boys.

Of all who were somewhat in the books, the only "Romanian" I had some hopes for was actually Radu Albot, who almost caused a nice upset btw (lost 6-4 in set 5 to ATP#19, in a festival of breaks worthy of WTA... if he would have won that one, the next rounds wouldn't have been so bad, so he actually stood a chance to make #100 ... still far from #70 tho). Sorry for the "off-topic".

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016): 2 possible mixed teams Q

MIXED DOUBLES: Halep / Tecau + good chances for Mergea / Niculescu (or Begu) .

* Last direct acceptance in 2012 was with a combined rank of #37. Mergea (#11) + Niculescu (#26) would be at exactly 37.


For Mixed Doubles, there will be an on-site sign up deadline, unlike in the other events.


Will come back with more news when the official lists will be released or if something important is announced till then.

Re: Olympics (Rio 2016): 2 possible mixed teams Q

Yep it would be great to have another pair.
I like both girls but I think Mergea-Begu would be an interesting combination.
If will be Monica she will be great at the net while Irina could hold her serve easier against the guy returns.

Off topic
Pe TVR un corespondent (Chican ?) la RG spunea ca Mergea si Bopanna nu prea si-au vorbit in timpul meciului cu Dodig/Melo din sferturi.
