Well, there's obviously no "Moldavian tennis" subforum for the moment, and I don't think there's even a thread dedicated to a Moldavian player yet because there's no player that really deserves it for the moment, so I thought we could discuss about Moldavian players/ young prospects/ results here. :) I don't think such a thread exists, I've looked up quickly but didn't find anything. I such a similar thread exists, tell me and I'll delete this one ;)).

There's not many Moldavian players for the moment, maybe the fact that Moldova sadly is the poorest European country accounts for much as playing competitive tennis is actually expensive. :sad: Hope with the younger generations, more Moldavian players will come up! :yeah:

Here is a short list of players that could be worth following:

- ranked players

Anastasia Vdovenco (WTA 772, born 1994)

- players without a ranking

Aliona Bolsova (Juniors CHR: #90, born 1997)
Alina Soltanici (Juniors CHR: #443, born 1995)
Gabriela Porubin (Juniors CHR: #441, born 1994)
Anastasia Detiuc (born 1998)
Adriana Sosnovschi (born 1998)
Cristina Bucsa (born 1998)

Daniela Ciobanu (Juniors CHR: #353, born 1995)
Julia Helbet (WTA CHR: 1085, born 1988)
Alisa Martinov (Juniors CHR: #1932, born 1997)
Melisa Martinov (Juniors CHR: #845, born 1994)

The ones I put in red are obviously the more promising. :) Come discuss! :cheer:

Last week, Gabriela Porubin qualified in 10K Antalya (with wins over Pia Konig & Varvara Kuznetsova :yeah:), before falling in R1 to (7)Chantal Skamlova.

This week she's trying qualies again, Q1 vs. Patricia Martins :bounce: :)

How did you find her? :)



This week:

Vdovenco plays 10K Le Havre, R1 vs. Ema Mikulcic :bounce:

Porubin qualified for 10K Antalya: beat Martins 1 & 1 in Q1, then (3)Tomic 2 & 3 in Q2 :yeah: :worship:, and Dide Beuer 2 & 0 in final Q round :woohoo: Then she lost in R1 5-7 2-6 to Lenka Jurikova :hug: It's ok, Lenka is much more experienced :)

She is kind of pretty. I can't really remember but her and Lottner where both annoyed by idiots that keep screaming after every point and talking throughout the points..
I can't remember how she plays, I remember both were hitting hard at each other

BOMBSHELL! :lol: Aliona Bolsova took Spanish nationality (not so surprising, as she's been training in Spain for a while now - pretty much all girls train out of Moldova anyways), and slightly modified her name: she's Aliona Bolsova Zadoinov now. :p

I'll still be updating her results in this thread for the moment, as she doesn't have her own thread anyways. She lost in R1 of G3 Torneo ITF Junior Benicarlo this week, 2 & 2 against Jasmine Paolini :(

Cristina Bucsa qualified for the same tournament, won her R1 match against Alannah Griffin, 6-1 7-6(4), before losing in R2 to Paolini like Aliona, 5-7 3-6 :sobbing: :hug:

Potapovushina
Apr 5th, 2013, 08:38 AM
Well, reading though the Spanish subforum, I read that apparently Bucsa is applying for Spanish nationality as well :oh: Poor Moldova :awww:

If you're interested, there's a FC tie between Kenya & Moldova streamed right now, and the stream (http://lsh.streamhunter.eu/static/popups/149889985344290.html) is quite good. :lol: Have no idea of who the players exactly are though. :tears:

Vdovenco won 1 & 4. :)

She seems to be so erratic though, quite a mess, I can imagine why she's been stuck more or less at the same level for quite a while now.

Moldova 2 - 0 Kenya

Potapovushina
May 8th, 2013, 01:34 PM

Vdovenco just made her 1st SF of the year this week (after barely winning a match in a 10K MD this year). It was in 10K Galati, she was seed 4. She lost badly in the SF though, 0 & 3 to Simion. :( Still, it's rather positive!

Anastasia Detiuc defeated Tamara Kupkova, 7-5 7-5. :yeah: Good win! :D
(Georgina Axon - who beat Zaicenco in R1, beat (15)Kristina Miletic in straight sets in R2. ;)).

R3

Anastasia Detiuc will face Berfu Cengiz. :cheer::cheer:





Only Detiuc still alive among the MDA girls. She's by far the most promising prospect in Moldavia at this day (if you consider that Bolsova now is Spanish. :tears:). Hope she can win a couple of matches more. :bounce::cheer:

Daniela Ciobanu (19 yo, CHR of 913 this week), is into her only 2nd career ITF singles SF this week at 10K Varna. :cheer:

She beat (3)Olga Doroshina (WTA 394) 4 & 2 in R1, (Q)Alexandra Perper (another Moldavian girl! :D) 6-4 3-6 6-3 in R2, and (WC)Petia Arshinkova 7-6(3) 6-3 in QF. :yeah:

SF vs. (1)Pernilla Mendesova (WTA 339) is gonna be tough, but hai! :cheer::cheer:



She reached a final at a 10K in Telavi last month as qualifier (lost 3 & 3 to Gasanova, another qualifier in the final).

She started the year unranked, only got her 1st WTA ranking at the beginning of August, she could break Top 800 by the end of the year...
