As I said before, Cristina will play tomorrow qualies for her first WTA event ever.
She'll face 18 yo WC Chloe Paquet from France, ranked 666(!!!) this week.





I hope that Cristina will easily go through to the second round :)

Congrats on starting your first player thread (or first-ever thread?) :yeah:

Christina got into the easiest section, and has a very good chance of qualifying.

Thanks, it's actually my first ever :)

I hope she qualifies and makes her first WTA-level main draw appearance in Marrakech.
She had a great finish to last year's season with two incredible weeks in Lagos, but the start of 2013 was not that bright. Played for the first time for Romania in Fed Cup and lost all 3 meetings there (with rather poor players, I might add), but then came back and won a 10K in Antalya last month.

Haven't seen her playing yet, but some friends of mine saw her and told me that she has an amazing backhand. Hope to see her soon, perhaps next week :)

:bounce: First WTA-level match and first win for Cristina :)

Second round of qualies against Nina Bratchikova. Cristina already won a meeting with Bratchikova last October in 25K Lagos semifinal 64 36 62. I hope she can do this once more tomorrow :)

I honestly don't know, I myself was surprised there wasn't a thread for her already...

Lagos slam :lol: More than a slam: 10 wins in 14 days :worship:

Cristina was a pretty good junior ITF player reaching a high ranking around 14. She has been a pretty good low level ITF player as well but I never got excited about her because she still needs to prove she can take the next step. I hope she is one of those players with slow but steady progress and she will rich a good level of play as she matures.

Anyway, up next is Nina Bratchikova, who Dina defeated on the way to said Slam ;)
