Good week for Marculescu at the G2 in Chisinau! I mean, ok she was a bit tired after protesting the government the whole week before but it was enough to reach semifinals in both singles and dubs She's closing in at top50 already now so hopefully she can do well at the slams this year

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Fatima

She's having good results lately. After Tarbes she went to Winter Cups and got another good win over a top10 player - Kostenko (UKR) and also against the polish #1 Wygonowska. Too bad they didn't qualify for the finals. Well, actually neither team qualified... all three lost in the SF and all three in the deciding dubs match

"Friend" won the national U16 championship as expected


2017 National U16 Winter Championships, Bucharest

Final: (2)Roxana Manu def. (1)Andreea Velcea 67(3) 62 64




As for Selma, she decided to continue in juniors. Not sure she'll manage to get a good ranking in time for the slams this year but for sure she got a good start by reaching the SF at the G2 Hammamet Juniors Cup

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Fatima lost today 2&1, but it was sooo fun to watch her play She did so much S&V, like I've never ever seen in juniors She has quite an unique style, to match her background. I really hope she'll make it... has a good athletic build, should have a strong serve, strong FH, good net skillz... just her one-handed backhand looks like it's gonna be her big problem. Proof that it's not worth to be a Federer fan

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Little Fatima is doing great so far at Les Petits As, reaching the QF with only small problems in the second match Obviously it will be harder and harder from here on... plays next against Polina Kudermetova, who apparently is coached by Agnieszka Radwanska Hopefully we can watch the match tomorrow.
All other romanians unfortunately lost without even winning a match Expected a bit more from Petric but she'll get another chance next year

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Mihaela Marculescu is the only one playing the aussie Open.
She also played the G1 in Traralgon but lost in the first round. Got no help from the federation... they promised her they will play for the plane tickets but in the end didn't even do that. Obviously in this conditions she's alone there, no coach, not even parents... only Vlad Dancu who plays in the boys competition and his mom. Luckily they received help (housing, practice courts, transportation etc) from a romanian man living in Melbourne.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Just like North Korea who punished their athletes who had bad results with forced labor in coal mines, the romanian juniors were send deep in the mountains for a training camp, immediately upon returning with those unimpressive Orange Bowl results...






Also on a more sunny side of the world and since it's been a while since someone actually won a trophy in juniors, wanted to point out that a couple of weeks ago IMG's Evelyne Tiron won a G5 in Nassau, Bahamas

Goombay Splash Bowl (BAH), G5
F: Evelyne Christelle Atticia Tiron (ROU) d. (4)Yasemin Ada Boru (TUR) 63 64




She's like really close with Bollettieri https://www.facebook.com/nickbollett...54625796087492

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Unimpressive results at the two big US events, Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl.... Marculescu reached the third round at the Orange Bowl U18's and Corneanu the same at OB U16's, losing a very close one (76(4) 76(4)) to the eventual winner Katie Volynets.

Some photos from the Orange Bowl:

Manu Roxana-Tennis
Another year passed. Definitely the hardest season so far, pushing through injuries and making it through them. I had some tough matches and also some tough losses but that's the life of a tennis player. I also had great moments with handsome people. I love all of you who were part of this year. Next season is another chapter of my tennis career, with more maturity, more motivation and more trust in myself. I'm not done yet. 2017 get ready. I will be��������

Pretty strong message from her after another poor result at the Orange Bowl.
In any case, she's almost 17 now and her juniors ranking isn't good enough to play slams. We might see her move on to 15k's next year, kinda like Andreea Rosca did...

Cadar Selma
Just wait till I come back
Just wait till I find my powers again
Just wait till I taste a little of the victory and it will become an addiction
And the motivation will be bigger than ever
Just wait till I'll play my game
Just wait till I raise.
Just be there,
And I'll promise I'll come to fight.
