Sorry, but it's difficult to go down to the years of Ruzici, Simionescu (Borg ), Mihai or Spirlea, Dragomir, Carstea to search this.

Or - look what I found at Ruzici's wikipedia page at her WTA finals -wer first title was in
18 August 1975 at United States South Orange, on clay against Mariana Simionescu 6–1, 6–1

The "golden" generation (Ruzici, Mihai, Simionescu, Romanov) never met on WTA or GS higher that R16 (Rome 1978 when Ruzici defeated Simionescu).

The generation 1997 (Spirlea, Dragomir, Cristea) never met on a WTA or GS event higher than R32.

As for the current generation I already told you about those 2 quaterfinals (Niculescu-Dulgheru in Tashkent & Cirstea-Gallovits-Hall in Bali).

Should Alex win her match today, WTA will tell us tomorrow if it's indeed the first all-Romanian WTA semifinal ever.

Untill then, Si Si Simona, enjoy Simo's win today. It was her 200th professional win!

Congrats, Simo!

The First All Romanian WTA Semi Final in 38 years!

That's good enough for a drama.
And now Alex will spoil everything and lose

Comn Alex!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

In 90 Ruxandra Dragomir si Irina Sparlea au disputat o finala si o semifinala, dar in ITF

There have been many many ITF semifinals & finals between Romanian girls, I think he wanted to know WTA level semifinals or finals.

If wikipedia is right the first WTA title won by Ruzici was against Simionescu in 1975, but I didn't find any other references about that.

Wiki must be right, but it's strange indeed (that match doesn't even appear on the ITF site which is 100% accurate).

The only explanation could be that back in 1975 that tournament wasn't a real WTA tournament (it appears that there weren't money prizes involved in 75), it just served as a ""qualifying" tournament for other important tournaments (before the first official Virginia Slims rankings appeared in late 1975 the players got acceptance for GS events based on their result on other smaller tournaments).

So, its the FIRST EVER All Romanian Semi Final, no?
And any people can write on Wiki, its not always 100% accurate. If the page owner doesn't check then mistakes can happen.
