Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!
First of all, CONGRATS to Raluca for earning her spot in the qualies of RG, her first appearance at the FO since 2011.
She drew Panova, who she played only once-- at RG seven years ago in the second round, when both were 17! Alexandra won that match, and she is currently also ranked much higher. Both players are not in their best form, so Raluca does have a chance for the upset here.
