Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I think it's just minutia. Do the top players even complain about this rule? I thought you just wanted to have fun thinking that you discovered some sort of arithmetical paradox in WTA rules and regulations.

I was explained here that the points are not taken down immediately, so the arithmetical paradox doesn't happen.
Top players don't complain because they are used to it, its just a mess.
Why create an artificial boundary at the top 20 line? Why not 30 or 15? Its just weird. No need for that.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I saw Simona's bag check on tennis channel so I looked for it on YouTube so I can post it here for all of you guys to see, but I can't find it on YouTube

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.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

When do they show the bag check? It's something random, isn't it? I also get tennis channel.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Two questions:
1) The fed cup draw was announced today so I must ask why is Romania only ranked 35 in the world? Romania can have two teams in the top 20.
Countries like Japan, Sweden, Argentina ranked higher. Whats going on there?

2) When was the last time a Romanian girl was ranked inside the top 20?

thanks

1. You would think that having 5 girls inside the Top 100, Romania could be a force in Fed Cup. But our top girls take turns in refusing to play for the Fed Cup. There are two main reasons: (a) our federation pays almost nothing the players involved in this competition and (b) rumor has it that our girls don't get along very well (in fact they hate each other guts) and they refuse to play if someone they don't like is asked to play. I know a lot of you reading this last sentence will disagree, because newspapers won't publish insights on this and it's understandable. For sure we all want them to get along just fine or even be friends, but this isn't the case here.
Last year Romania's team was composed of Cirstea, Olaru & Dinu (Cirstea was 2-1 in the singles matches and Dinu was 0-4). Cirstea, Halep, Begu & Niculescu (for doubles matches) would have been a much better option, but looks like it was impossible to create that team. And the year before that Begu & Halep made the team (alongside Burzanescu), but Cirstea didn't play.
It's gonna be interesting to see who gets to play Fed Cup for Romania this year.

2. Last Romanian in Top 20 was Ruxandra Dragomir (January 17, 2000 - #20).

Thanks for the info, I can guess who hates who... bitches...
Lets hope that the 13 years after Dragomir were enough,
I have a good name to be the new top 20

Another question:
When was the last time two Romanian girls played each other in the Semis or a final of a WTA event?

I don't know about WTA semifinals or finals, but the last WTA-level quaterfinal was in 2010 in Tashkent (Niculescu def. Dulgheru) and before that there was another all-Romanian quaterfinal between Cirstea and Gallovits-Hall in 2007 in Bali. Cirstea won.

From what I understand it's not her. Better said it's not ONLY her. Looks like they all have something against each other. Anyway, it's sad. Even sadder when you look at the German or French girls, how united and supportive of one another they are.

They don't really hate each other I think. Its the competition and jealousy making them be like that. They need someone like Nastase or Tiriac to make them unite and stop the nonsense.

So maybe never? It maybe the first time in a semi final if the two win today.
