We also have Ilinca Stoica (15 years) in the final of a G4 junior tournament this week in Austria.

iPatty

I saw that and she is up against a 15-year old Swiss girl so it's a good week. :)

I wish I could take juniors into account but that would just be far too much work that I am not ready to take on at the moment.

I don't want to start a new thread so I guess this is the best place....

There are three Romanians in the top 10 of junior rankings (Halep and both Bogdans) - has anyone here seen all three of them play and a have some opinion about which one is the most likely (if any) to suceed at wta level?

I have never seen Ana Bogdan play, but if I were to bet on any of them it would be Halep. She has a big game and a very agressive mindset on the court, never giving up. I have heard and read that Elena Bogdan is a pusher but the couple of times I have watched I found she mixes power really well into her game on her forehand. Halep has terrible luck with injuries though, if fully healthy she would probably be Top200 by now. I hope this is her year.

Romanian Player of the Week:

It is the first 25k win for the Romanian since her come back after the injury! :)

Romanian Upset of the Week:
Elora Dabija(452) beating top seed Patricia Mayr-Achleitner(112) in the second round of $25,000 ITF in Brescia in straights! It's the biggest win ever for the Romanian girl and the first for her over an Top 150 player! :worship:

Romanian Fail of the Week:
Alexandra Dulgheru(28) winning only one single game against the second seed Vera Zvonareva(3) after some good wins in the previous rounds and the bad clay form of the opponent, though I'm not really sure about her intention there.... :unsure:
Honourable mention to Simona Halep(68) only winning 3 games against Jelena Dokic(65) on her opponent's first clay match of the year... :facepalm:

Romanian Fighter of the Week:
Alexandra Dulgheru(28) winning in the first round of Brussels against Polona Hercog(55) who gave her a beat down the week before and also led in that match by a comfortable set. Then Alexandra finally pulled herself together and won in the end 6-4, 6-2 in the last 2 sets don't allow the Slovenian any further break point! :eek:

As expected Alexandra couldn't defend her points from warsaw last year and drooped out the Top 30, but her clay form seems to stabilize on a decent level just before Roland garros.
Let's hope for a successful French Open for all of the Romanian girls! :cheer:

Apr 28th, 2012, 01:56 PM
Definitely fail-worthy as well, with a good chance to win any other week, but nothing beats Simona's and Sorana's spectacles. A somehow healthy Svetlana would have won or taken that MP, so her victory in R2 was kind of lucky as well - and yes Laura was her punchbag and even in that match Pous didn't have any weapons or game to trouble Irina, but if you don't keep the ball in play match-ups are getting kind of useless. She looked absolutely drained out there, her fitness is worrying...

Vaideanu is born in Piatra Neamt, according to the ITF site. She's almost 22 now, so no chance to become an important player.

May 18th, 2012, 06:57 PM
She even led by a break in the 3rd (4-2), so of course it was good to bring it to a final set, still failed somehow. And if I add her to that list, it's hard to draw a line because even players that are losing matches could be named 'fighters'. I mean every 2nd Monica match is exceeding the 2hours mark not to mention her 3 set matches full of drama...

EDIT: I guess it's a definition thing. For me 'fighting' is not just staying for 3 hours on a tennis court. To me it's kind of the opposite of 'choking', alas coming from behind to win a close match.

So after Edina joinig from the qualies ther will be 6 Romanian players in US Open main draw.

Niculescu - Morita
Cirstea - Lisicki
Halep - Benesova
Cadantu - Wozniak
Begu - Wozniacki
Gallovits -Voegele

How many of them will go into R2 ?
3 sounds good to me, 2 not very bad, 1 would be disappointing and 0 :o

They could all lose :lol:

Pretty much, and to be honest, there isn't even a single match where a Romanian player is favourite to win. Best chances to go through is Sorana in my opinion, but to look at the matches properly:

Niculescu - Morita:

Monica won 4 games in their one and only previous meeting, although it has to be said that this one took place during her biggest slump in the spring of 2009. However, Monica has had 0 match preperation and we don't even know if she is halfway fit or just playing for the money. I mean if she would have felt better, she could have taken the Dallas MM as well. Usually struggles against flat hitting Asian players even when she is fit. No expectations, althugh Morita has been quite poor and a bad compatitor this year, so if she can she has to hang in there, but I don't think so.

Winning chance: 10%

Cirstea - Lisicki:

Pretty good match up for Sorana who apart from the FO performed very well at the slams so far this year. She definitely has the mental advantage here, saving MPs in 2 of her wins against the mentally instable German, who on top of that always struggles to find her rhythm after 'injury breaks' of hers. Sabine is actually a very poor return player on Hard considering her ranking and Sorana possesses a great serve these days when it's clicking, actually the serve is what brought her up again.

Winning chance: 70%

Halep - Benesova:

Toss up match with Simona being injured as usually at that date of the year and Iveta slumping and choking badly at the moment. Both players are lacking self-confidence at the moment, but I fear that Simona won't have the stamina to pull through.

Winning chance: 45%

Cadantu - Wozniak:

Got doubled bagel after a good first set in Budapest where she played up to her potential, but on Hard Court I can't see this one even getting close at the moment.

Winning chance: 0%

Begu - Wozniacki:

No, just no...
Only chance lies in a possible retirement.

Winning Chance: 5%

Gallovits - Voegele:

Someone who can't beat Falconi at the FO or Soler Espinosa at Wimbledon won't win this one for sure. Even if the draw looks good, it won't happen.

Winning chance: 20%

I would rate Monica's chances higher and Sorana's lower (She got double bageled by Sesil a few weeks ago, and Sabine is always dangerous). Otherwise, I agree. Edina could us surprise us tho.

Cirstea is the overwhelming favorite.
Edina has no chance at all.
Simo beat Nadia in Miami this year but she's just coming back so I don't expect much from her.
As for Irina... I don't wanna jynx anything.

Tatishvili wouldn't be ranked inside Top 100 when it wasn't for her 1286382 walking byes in the R1 of majors, so Sorana better wins this one. She should actually overpower her easily and according to her blog, she feels quite well. Still, you neer know with her.

Edina should enjoy the night session, it will be the last for her I guess. She has had a great week already.

Simona showed that she can beat Petrova, but I don't think the fitness will allow her to repeat that.

Irina-Camelia should just focus on her serve for once. That would be enough already to defeat Soler who even got beaten by Cadantu this year on Hard. The upset over Caro should boost her confidence and when she is playing well, she is at least playing well for the whole week, usually.

Pretty sure Dulgheru would be a Top 20 player by now if injuries wouldn't have forced her to take a break.

Her personal record mark in ranking points is 2155, achieved in April last year. That would secure her #17 as of today's rankings.

Yes, Arantxa is getting bageled/breadsticked in every match she plays at the moment. This one is really Irina-Camelia's to lose and that's where the problems starts because most of the time it's not her opponent winning, but herself losing the plot.

She isn't a brainless ballbasher by any means, she is just moody and unsteady in everything she does.

Paszek - Cadantu

Paszek is obviously injured, but she will fight for her ranking. She loves playing in Wimbledon and will probably seek from the memories of her victorious past.
Alexandra on the other hand just doesn't seem to feel comfortable on this surface in general.
Paszek in a close straight setter


Halep - Govortsova

Simona is on fire and trashed her opponent 0&1 earlier this year already. Keeping the ball in play will always be enough for Govortsova who doesn't have the patience, nor the fighting spirit or focus to compete on a good level for an entire match.
If Simona shouldn't be too tired, this will be an easy straight set win.


Niculescu - Barthel

Simona can't win a match at Slams to save her life and Monica is a horror match-up for her. Nics should be all fired up by her great doubles success and she has nothing to defend from last year.
If she keeps focused, she should prevail.
It will be very important for her to win the 1st set, then I can't see Barthel being motivated enough to start a come back.


CÓrstea - VŲgele

Nothing is predictable with Sorana, but she is going into this match with a 3-0 lead in the H2H and she is just by far the better player on grass out of these two.
Anything else, but a win would be really disappointing, but I can see her dropping a set for brainless reasons.


Begu - Torro-Flor

A match in which Irina-Camelia can just embarras herself. Torro hasn't played a single match on grass so far in her career and with the poor footwork of the Spaniard, even on her beloved clay, and her generally dire form this year, I can't see her doing anything on this surface now.
Irina-Camelia just won a doubles title and is getting slowly back into rhythm. This is the perfect warm-up match for her.
Must-win match, anything else would be shocking.

From Cirstea and Cadantu/Paszek I don't kmow what to expect.

R1 finished:

Sorana winning a match in straight sets starting come backs in both of them

Irina-Camelia just having won a doubles titles, lost a match against a sucking player who has never played on grass before.

Simona kept her winning streak alive and toughed it out against Govortsova.

Alexandra who hasn't won a WTA match on grass yet, beats Grass GOAT and gets her 1st GS win on her worst surface.

Monica is wasting triple MP against a player who hasn't won a slam main draw match since AO last year.

Disappointing Wimbledon:

Monica losing and choking MPs to a player who couldn't win slam matches to save her life, doesn't have a brain, nor a funcioning return. She should routine players like Barthel, terrible loss.

Irina-Camelia needs to think about her career and what to do with her shoulder. Losing to Torro on grass in straight sets... no comment.

Sorana with another terrible loss and a terrible match. Served for it in both sets, had Sps in both sets, clowned her way out comically in the joke bottom half.

Simona did what she had to do. She is hurt and deserves a rest. The second set from today was really good, though. She is on thr right track.

Alexandra is the only one who exceeded the expectations. She beat a sucking opponent and made it close in r2 despite her obvious limitations. Her cahnces to finish this year inside teh Top 100 are huge now,

Poor backfence.

Looks as if Olachenko is really happening now. Raluca is on her way to become a full doubles specialist, but to pair up with a more established doubles player she needs to bring some results at first.

Lepchenko did fluke two great slam results with SAISAI-MUG, so who knows...

This day had to be recorded here for Simona's new rank. :yeah:
Highest ranked Romanian in WTA history tying Irina Spirlea and Mariana Simionescu.

On another subject Begu and Dulgheru are very close together even though Alex did not play much.
I hope both of them will be again top 100 very soon.

Simona's 7 rank is also tied with Mariana Simionescu 1977's one. I know that Simionescu isn't a Romanian Citizen anymore but at that particular moment she represented Romania.

How come ?

How come ?

I don't know exactly, but I think that after she married Borg in '80 she took Sweden citizenship.

So Romania doesn't allow dual citizenship ? :eek:

Now, yes, it's possible to have dual citizenship, but back in that "golden" era no, for sure :)
