Dominating win for Elena. R2 against Oprandi most likely will obviously be quite tough. :lol:

Jul 22nd, 2010, 08:12 AM
Elena is steadily making it up the rankings. she's into the top 300 at 270+. If she makes a good run in the upcoming tournaments, she just might make USO qualies!

Ouch. Still a good tournament nonetheless

Jul 24th, 2010, 08:35 AM
I don't think it has been mentioned in this thread that Elena Bogdan got a Q-wildcard for 220K Copenhagen (02 August - 08 August)? The official tournament site once said that Ana Bogdan got the Q-wc but now it says Elena which probably is correct. GL!

EDIT: Now the official site again says Ana Bogdan. What a mess! Sorry for the confusion :o
Good luck to Ana if she indeed got the Q-wc!

Jul 25th, 2010, 04:45 PM
well if Ana got one, Elena definitely deserves one :( unless Ana has some sort of connections, sponsors, training facilities etc.

Jul 27th, 2010, 08:14 AM
good week for Elena.she will play with Madalina Gojnea in the 1st rnd of 75k trn in Bucharest:(

Jul 31st, 2010, 02:59 PM
after loosing 6-0 6-0 against Gojnea in singles R32, she won the doubles tournament partnering Irina Begu. they've defeated IRIGOYEN (ARG) / MOLINERO (ARG) 6-1, 6-1 in the final. Good job girls

Jul 31st, 2010, 05:52 PM
a nice consolation I guess. I'm still wondering how can Elena lose 06 06 to Gojnea.

Congratez Elena. Should be an almost confirmed AO qualie spot :)

Oct 10th, 2010, 04:17 PM
Amazing performance from her and she is still very young! :cheer: :bigclap:

Maybe she will manage a breakthrough next season, like we saw it from Alex. At least she was more successful as a junior. :)

Oh, I just saw that Ralu lost against Costas-Moreira 4:6 1:6 in the second round of the tournament :happy: :tape:

# 207 this week!! :woohoo:

Oct 27th, 2010, 06:21 PM
Same as Madalina there. Elena seems to be making her plan to Taipei, which I'd love it to see her play live. Sorry as I've not been really following hard. Only thing I know she's a good up and coming lefty, and is NOT sister of the other Bogdan lol. But sure it would be great if you can give me more info on this girl, playing style, career plan, or like personality, funny personal story? Thank you guys for the great great help. Would try to bring more of her to you during the week.

Hope you have a great time meeting Elena. i've reports of her being rude & arrogant, i hope thats not the case.

Nov 3rd, 2010, 03:41 PM
Elena lost 63 67(7) 63. :sad: But great effort from her in that second set TB to fight and push it to three. Expecting good things next season.

She's currently at #198 so if three more people don't pass her, she will be in the Top200 for the first time in her career!

Nov 3rd, 2010, 05:20 PM
Brilliant news, though she lost the tough match today :sad:

Hope you have a great time meeting Elena. i've reports of her being rude & arrogant, i hope thats not the case.

Where did you hear that? :confused:

Nov 3rd, 2010, 05:34 PM
I can't remember. I read it in one of the ITF threads where Elena was playing. Someone commented that he/she wonders why Elena has any fans. So I asked if there's any particular reason why he/she seems to dislike her so much. He/she then shared that he met Elena & she was arrogant.

I'm not really sure myself, anybody here has met Elena in person? She seems to be really shy from interviews & pictures.

Nov 3rd, 2010, 05:37 PM
I'm even from Romania and don't know her personally :o

So, maybe just some pathetic hater; people who should shut up more often :rolleyes:

Nov 3rd, 2010, 06:08 PM
She seems to be really shy from interviews & pictures.

yeah she seems very shy outside the court but on court I think she's temperamental.

btw I've found this picture - Ana and Elena Bogdan together @ US Open 2008 - It's the first time when I see them together... Lots of pictures with Elena, Iova, Dinu, Ilinca Stoica and other players can be found - here (http://picasaweb.google.com/anelin.popescu)

WTA Estoril, Qualifying Round 1:

Sesil Karantcheva def. Elena Bogdan 6:3 7:6(1)

Served for the match in second set... :o

From 3-2 in the second to the end.

Bogdan is a lefty shotmaker with a good serve and plenty of firepower from the baseline. Her FH DTL was doing a lot of damage, and she was willing to move forward to finish off points at the net with drive volleys - and she can also pull off superb BH dropshots.

Sesil's serve is at Camille Pin levels right now, and the only thing she can do with her FH is to loop it as deep as she can (i.e. not much) and wait for the best. Her BH remains sublime though; as HenryMag noticed, she has superb control on it even when hitting it late and out of balance. Bogdan was pounding Sesil's FH side, and in most rallies Sesil was hanging by a thread. She was being completely overpowered while serving at 4-4, but held mostly due to Bogdan being dismal on ROS. Eventually Bogdan earned the chance to serve for the set at 5-6*, but choked horribly, and then went for too much on every single point in the TB, handing Sesil the win on a silver platter.

May 19th, 2011, 07:51 PM
I would love it if Elena can qualify. Sabine Lisicki is one of the most popular and highly regarded players in the forum and it would not be a popular victory but it would delight me. I have thought for some time Lisicki is, shall we say, regarded somewhat more highly than her results justify and I think Elena the way she is playing has the ability to burst the bubble just as Sloane Stevens did last week and Mandy Minella the week before. Lisicki is one of the better player ranked outside the top 100 but she is a long way from being unbeatable and if Elena can play her best she could surprise a lot of people. ;)

May 19th, 2011, 07:56 PM
being hot = overrated on tennisforum :oh:

May 19th, 2011, 08:08 PM
being hot = overrated on tennisforum :oh:

Very true. The other reason for this is a lot of posters love her for the Caro-Bump incident. Bumping and then beating the despised Wozniacki at Wimbledon, makes her something of a hero. :lol:

May 20th, 2011, 05:33 PM
She lost to Lisicki 3-6 3-6 :hug: Great effort nonetheless. I did not expect her to make QFR here at all so :yeah: well done!

Hahaha, I doubt they'd listen to that.

Even though I know for sure Ema is a modest and down to earth girl (I'm friends with her cousin) and Olaru seems like a good girl herself, vanities can be very big even at this level (take Jill Craybas who's 38, had her share of good times tennis-wise, she's completely out and still won't call it a career). Both Ema & Raluca are still very young and they owe it to themselves to keep trying at least for a while.
But I'd give them one more season to keep trying. If you stay off the horse for a long time it's getting harder and harder to get back on it, and they're both out of form for too long now...
