Cristina played college tennis in the US so she definitely had a lot of competition the last four years. :lol:

But none on the WTA Tour, not since October 2011. But I'm glad to hear she played college tennis in the US in the meantime (apparently she played for Texas A&M University ans she finished this season on the 10th position), hopefully this experience will help her just like it helped Jill Craybas, Laura Granville, Mallory Burdette and so many others on the tour in the past.

Anyways, it's been decided her opponent in the second round tomorrow and Raluca Elena Platon it is. Cristina can do it, no doubt about that. Best of luck! :cheer:

This win made me very happy :drool:

Also, she wasn't kidding in that interview. She did indeed almost win the national title (http://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/tennis-women/d1/2012) with the Texas A&M team last year. It was actually Cristina who lost the decisive match. http://www.ncaa.com/news/tennis-women/article/2013-05-21/stanford-becomes-lowest-seed-win-ncaa-crown-defeats-texas-am-4-

Ahn had taken her first set 7-5 before Stancu won the second frame 6-4. Tied at 2-2 in deciding set, Ahn put her foot on the gas and placed the Cardinal on her back.

After a series of championship points, Stancu belted a forehand that sailed wide, and Ahn prepared herself for an ensuing dogpile after taking the final set 6-2.

Raluca Platon --> ‎Cristina Madalina Stancu
Multumesc pentru cele 5 turnee superbe in care ne-am sustinut si ajutat reciproc...Am gasit in tine nu doar o partenera cu care m-am completat perfect,ci si o prietena in afara terenului. Imi vine greu sa cred ca acesta este ultimul turneu pe care il vom juca impreuna. I will miss you so much... — with Cristina Madalina Stancu.

During the 10k tournament in Iasi you posted a video with an interview of Cristina, where she was saying that she wasn't having anything to do in Romania during this summer so that's when she decided to enter some competitions. But after that she wants to go back ti the US to try to pursue a career in marketing (IIRC). I guess winning a title and getting back on the WTA Rankings didn't make her change her mind :(

Daily grind of ITF's isn't for everyone. It would have been nice if she changed her mind and gave pro tennis a full-time try, but good luck to her :hug:.

That's great news :yeah: In just 2 months she reached #721 in the WTA Rankings. It would have been a pity to waste her good form :)

They're 75 and 50k's respectively so I'm not sure her chances of getting in are all that great. Still, it's nice to hear she plans to keep playing in the US. I could understand why she wouldn't want to do it, but she's been playing so well like Belle said, it would have been a shame to give up on it now of all times.
