Re: Iona Raluca Olaru leaves the top 10
I don't understand why Ralu is doing so badly. She seems talented enough to stick around in the lower echelons of the top-100 but she's falling toward the 300 mark. I saw a little bit of her match at Wimbledon qualifying and there just didn't really seem to be too much urgency or fighting spirit (which I guess answers the first bit of my post).
I think she really should have entered that $25k ITF in Romania this week.

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
