She lost 3 & 4 to Ferrando today

But she did take her revenge in the dubs final later, with Vlada Ekshibarova: they were the 3rd seeds, beat 4th seeds Boev/Ferrando 6-4 7-6(4)

New article about her recent wins in Heraklion and lack of financial support SPECIAL | Cum se face performan?? f?r? bani. Raluca ?erban a c?tigat dou? titluri consecutive n circuitul ITF! "Din p?cate, nu s-a schimbat nimic pe plan financiar" | @ProSport

She keeps playing in Heraklion since it is close to Cyprus, where her family moved 4 years ago. She admires Maria Sharapova and shared her secret "First of all, I really enjoy playing on hard, so the court surface here works in my favor. Also, the atmosphere in Heraklion is always good for me; I feel at home and people are very welcoming."

Asked whether or not anything changed since the beginning of the year when she was not receiving financial support from the national tennis federation (or anywhere else) she gave straightforward answer of "Unfortunately nothing's changed." last year she explained some of her current financial difficulties. "Nobody offers me financial support. For example, last year I paid for the 8 tournaments where I played out of my own pocket. In order to play in the first tw -that I won- I had to be a sparring partner for some children for 3 months. Afterwards I had enough money to play the rest of the tournaments in Greece. Winning those I made enough to play in another six tournaments."

"My morale was low since time was passing by and I did not have enough money to complete, but I managed to get past that and help my own cause going forward. Tennis is the only thing I'm good at, it is everything I know how to do so I don't see myself doing anything else."

Kid should start her own goFundme page for next season.

The Heraklion Queen keeps going, winning this week's title as the #3 seed. This was a stranger win. Her opponent, Nina Krujijer, retired in the second set 04 down after taking the first 63. Still this makes it 10 wins in a row for Raluca!

With this victory, she'll break into the Top 500 for the first time, in two weeks. Congrats!
