Raluca-Ioana Olaru (Romania) ~ 16 yrs old

Good luck Raluca in your RG final Sunday! :D :bounce:

http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/image/gallery/IO_7951_gallery.JPG

Olaru earned her chance at the singles title with a 4-6, 6-0, 6-2 comeback win against Ayumi Morita of Japan and said she couldn’t be more excited to be so close to a debut singles junior grand slam title. “Oh, I’m extremely excited,” she said, with a broad grin. “I knew that I could do it before the tournament but of course I was a bit tense today in my match. This is new for me, it’s my first time and everyone is congratulating me, which is really nice. I think I have to try and not think about being in the final and be confident and tell myself that I deserve to win the title.”

-------------------------------------

Raluca is a very good clay-courter.

She won Astrid Bowl Charleroi, Belgian International Junior Championships last week. Made the finals the week before that at the Trofeo Bonfiglio "Campionati Internazionali D'Italia". Then made the semis before that at the International Junior Tournament "Citta' Di Santa Croce". Then before that made the finals at the Gerdau Tennis Cup. Then before that made the QF's at the Banana Bowl and a QF at the Uruguay Bowl. Then before those, she made another final at the Coffee Bowl (Copa del Cafe). All of these are on clay in 2005. This girl seriously rules the clay and has put together a 36-7 record this year! :eek:

Plus she's had impressive wins over Alize Cornet two times, Timea Bascinszky, Olivia Lukaszewicz, Evgenia Rodina, Ayumia Morita two times, and Anna Tatishvili! :bigclap:

GO RALUCA!

Thanks. :wavey: I wrote Italian Open in Cibulkova's thread, so I dunno why I wrote Astrid Bowl here. :help: :p

Btw, Raluca's next tournament after RG is the International Junior Tournament, Offenbach/Germany. She is the 2nd highest ranked entry, but her new ranking makes her the highest entry. So hopefully Raluca will get the #1 or #2 seed. It takes place from the 7th-12th of June. Good luck Raluca! :D Show more of that impressive clay form!!!!!! :woohoo:

I think Ralu has a good draw to get to the 3rd round. Erakovic I think might be too much for Ralu on grass, but then again, Erakovic has played a lot of tennis and may be tired. Good luck Ralu! Let's make a good run here @ Wimbledon! :yeah:

Super G explained Anna's retirement like this

she came back in the first set from 1/5 to win it 7/5 and lost all her power she had in that day at about 35 degrees in that comeback... (her own words)
at the end she was just to exhausted to play anymore....

impressive that Ralu could cope with those circumstances but that explains the second and third sets :(

On other news, also apparently, she was on the 25k$ at Coimbra either last week or 2 weeks ago, qualifying and losing on the 2nd Round to Akgul Amanmuradova, 3rd seed, in 3 sets.

Tough loss. Ralu said she was distracted because it's so noisy in the inside courts. She also didn't like being so close to the other matches.

Ralu lost to a better player on the day, no shame in that. And she had a great tournament, she should be proud :)

That's not normal at all, Panova was being bashed by equally good players.
