I much appreciate your effort to express yourself in English as expressing myself in Romanian is not just hard -- it is impossible and your English is miles ahead of Google Translate.
Damn, I wanted to mean significant (as Cheddar said), not semnificative, sorry
Thanks for your feedback regarding English (but I know that still isn't so good )

Re: Simona's MILESTONES

Three suggestions made above have been added to the first post. I have skipped adding Simona's 'big sacrifice'.

A question regarding Mariana Simionescu ... why is she almost never mentioned when the highest ranked Romanian women are mentioned? Everywhere else I read & hear that Simona is only the 3rd Romanian woman to be ranked Top 10 after Irina Spirlea (#7) and Virginia Ruzici (#8). I think even the WTA website said this after Simona made the Top 10.

Because the WTA site is a joke regarding some matters (especially players database) . There are many missing players from the 70's and the 80's ,not only Romanians and this is the main cause why she is rarely mentioned.

Re: Simona's MILESTONES



You'll have to edit the posts again next week (at least #1 and #3) because Kvitova won't win Rome and Simona'll be WTA #4


Hopefully , you'll get to edit post #2 as well (in a positive way )
