Well deserved, she's been a force in ITF tournaments for some time now. Do some damage please :D.

Both dropshot queens qualified - her and Monica ^.

More good news. I have got to say the 2010 crop of Wimbledon qualifying is the intriguing and fun group to qualify here that I can ever recall. It was a great qualifying campaign and Romina was definately one of the stars of it.

I didn't get to see as much of Romina as I would have liked but she looked a hell of a lot fitter than when I saw her at the US Open. And her game was very steady. Most of the time she was very content to rally from the baseline and her consistency and court coverage were good enough that she could play this way with real confidence. She actually probably didn't even need her dropshots this week her ground game was so solid. Very promising.

I was there for her Q2 & Q3 matches, haven't seen her play for a few years but she is playing amazing!!! :hearts:

She has so much talent and great technical ability, great backhand..so much heavy slice on the ball, great forehand, she was serving well. She stayed calm when she lost the second, refocused and came back strong in the third. Her movement is still the main thing that lets her down....but the rest of her game is great!! :hearts: In the QR2 match she was having problems breathing and had pain in her back, she has heavy strapping on her knee and also on her arm and on her left hand too...she is like the walking wounded at the moment, so really great achievement for her to qualify!! :worship: (Really wonder what her career would have been like without all those injuries...)

Forza Romina!! :bounce:
