Iona Raluca Olaru leaves the top 10

Ranked #250 WTA this week, she is the #11 Romanian player in the rankings

Until this week she was on a 7 match losing streak (last match won in a $25K 1R in USA 4 months ago, lost in R2 60 61 vs Grace Min )

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Iona Raluca Olaru leaves the top 10

OMG Ralu

BTW it's Ioana not Iona

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Why she should retire? There is always a time to recover, she is not 30 Players have slumps, and few such big one...nothing "unbeatable" though.

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.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Re: Iona Raluca Olaru leaves the top 10

She describes herself as ambitious... and people with an insane amount of ambition always end up depressed

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She's so inconsistent. She will do well in one tournament and then can't follow it up whatsoever. I hope everything is alright off the court also.

Re: Iona Raluca Olaru leaves the top 10

That she would be included in the 'Top 10' of anything, immediately loses all credibility to me.

She was never really that good to begin with. Just a pusher.
