Ranked #250 WTA this week, she is the #11 Romanian player in the rankings :sobbing:

Until this week she was on a 7 match losing streak (last match won in a $25K 1R in USA 4 months ago, lost in R2 60 61 vs Grace Min :tape:)

In the next 2 weeks she has to defend MD wins from last year's Palermo and Bad Gastein :help:

Why she should retire? There is always a time to recover, she is not 30:p Players have slumps, and few such big one...nothing "unbeatable" though.

I don't understand why Ralu is doing so badly. She seems talented enough to stick around in the lower echelons of the top-100 but she's falling toward the 300 mark. I saw a little bit of her match at Wimbledon qualifying and there just didn't really seem to be too much urgency or fighting spirit (which I guess answers the first bit of my post).

I think she really should have entered that $25k ITF in Romania this week.

She describes herself as ambitious... and people with an insane amount of ambition always end up depressed :shrug:

Same :sobbing:

She's so inconsistent. She will do well in one tournament and then can't follow it up whatsoever. I hope everything is alright off the court also.

I just have no words for this. Ralu is so talented, I have no idea what went wrong :o

That she would be included in the 'Top 10' of anything, immediately loses all credibility to me.

She was never really that good to begin with. Just a pusher. :shrug:

Seen many matches of her and I've never seen her as a pusher. :shrug:

It's big time her fault! She played unbelievable 5!! ITF tournaments so far in this year and those only in the 50K or higher range. The rest of the time she wasted by playing every smaller WTA qualification tournament from Bogota to Acapulco and Budapest where she didn't go far of course, but seeing how few points you get there desn't make them worthwhile anyway... :o

Just go back to 25K and have some good runs there to bring you some self-confidence back and first go back to the Top 200 now! :tape:

By the way, they have already awarded her a main draw wildcard for the 100K in Bucharest... :facepalm:

cadantu has a better ranking than olaru atm?? :tape:

Comparing Ralu's talent to the one of Alexandra the lesser, this is really quite emberrassing for Olaru, but in contrast to her Cadantu is regularly playing on the ITF and therefore earns her ranking more. (In fact she is even Top 120 in the Race) :lol:

The main difference between Cadantu and Olaru and the obvious reason why she is ranked higher is that Cadantu is winning much more:oh:
