Absolutely incredible run. Winning 100k ITFs isn't easy but winning them in this manner is very rare. It does suggest the kind of form that should have no problem getting a very respectable about of wins on the WTA circuit. And with Romina's ranking now comfortably in the top 100 it won't be long now before we start regularly seeing her name in WTA draws again. Also with a measly about of ranking points to defend over the remainder of the season I can expect Romina to beat a lot closer to a ranking of 50 than a ranking of 100 by the end of the year. Pretty cool.
Twice already she took a year off (or close to it) from playing pro tennis (July 2004-February 2005; June 2007-August 2008). A nasty forearm injury in Budapest 07 was the catalyst for her second hiatus, granted, but (Italian posters will correct me if this is wrong/unfair) she also clearly wanted to do something else with her life, at least for a while.
