Second U14 G3 title in a row for little Fatima Keita

"Viva Trophy Galati" (ROU), TE U14 G3
Final: (1)Fatima Ingrid Amartha Keita (ROU) d. (4)Silvia Maria Costache (ROU) 6-3 7-6(3)

Not only that, she said in a interview that she's training with Firicel Tomai, the coach who worked for years with Victor Hanescu and Simona Halep But again, cringeworthy to see her called having south-american roots

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

At the US Open this year, Romania will have only one junior, Ioana Minca who is again part of the ITF Development team

Interview with Alexandra Petric who was participating at Victor Hanescu "Train like a pro" program:

Petric also won some club title in the Czeck Republic and even meet Kvitova there

Also Fatima Keita took part in Hanescu's program and looks like it payed off, as she this week she won a G3 in singles and dubs without losing a set

Arad, Romania

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Easy win 61 61 for Mihaela... but in the second match Smaranda Corneanu lost the first set 75 after she was up 53

Hopefully she can come back, was in tears after that set Second set just started now Live Broadcast - European Summer Cups

le. Smaranda lost after like 4 hours Luckily Prisacariu and Marculescu won the dubs and so Romania qualified for the final in Budapest

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Good showing by Ioana in her first WTA match, could have even won this match (had a couple of SP's in the first set) but was understandably nervous throughout. Hit some great winners but also struggled to keep the ball in play at times.... as always also no shortage of gif-able reactions from Ioana
