Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Interview with Ioana Minca: Interviu cu Ioana Minc?: ?fiecare moment al carierei a īnsemnat propulsarea mea īn clasamentul interna?ional? | Open Tenis

Ioana broke into the top30 in juniors earlier this year. Starting this week, Ioana will be part of the ITF development team and will participate with this team in different tournaments and training camps. Her last tournament was Plovdiv G2 where she made SF in singles and won dubs with Iulia Ivascu.

Also winner in dubs was Oana Gavrila in the french G1 near Nice, where she also made the QF's in singles.

I guess she's.... olteanca

She's from Craiova anyway, I guess her dad is german/swiss or something, I have no way of knowing and it's probably not important for the purpose of this thread at least... but you will find her also as Michelle Curteanu in some places.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Vote 4 Fatima pls - Fatima Ingrid Amartha Keita | Mobilizam excelenta

Fatima Ingrid Amartha Keita, 12 ani, tenis de cāmp

Fatima are 12 ani și este multiplă campioană națională la tenis. Este componentă a lotului național al Federației Romāne de Tenis și este legitimată la clubul Dinamo București, secția tenis condusă de Diane Samungi.

Fatima are deja 5 titluri de Campioană Națională (simplu, dublu sau pe echipe), 3 titluri de Vicecampioană Națională, 2 titluri europene (simplu și dublu), 5 finale europene (1 simplu și 4 dublu), 5 semifinale europene (2 simplu și 3 dublu). Īn perioada 2014-2015 a făcut parte din echipă Romāniei la Campionatele Europene pe Națiuni. Obiectivul pe termen mediu este să ajungă să se califice pe tabloul principal la cele 2 turnee de nivel mondial pentru juniorii de 14 ani și să treacă cel puțin de 2 tururi la fiecare. Un rezultat excepțional pentru ea ar fi să ajungă īn sferturile de finale la ambele turnee.

Cu cei 10.000 lei īn plus, Fatima și-ar putea acoperi o parte din cheltuielile de antrenament și de transport la concursuri naționale īn 2016, unde vrea să ajungă īntre primele 3 fete din țară.
