Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I'm seriously confused. Some matches are completely thrown away by her and in others she is fighting till the last point.

She became such a moody player, but she is still able to grind out some decent wins here and there considering her current situation. She has still some fighting spirit left in her.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

At least she's winning sometimes

Is there really any improvement though?

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Raluca reached her 4th semifinal of the year. Sofia was a 100K last year, and she reached the second round as a qualifier, so she won't pick up many more points. She needs to string SFs together consistently to start to see any real movement in her ranking.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Defeated #3 seed Khromacheva in Telavi 50k, R1

Irina is slumping, but a straight set win sounds very promising and R2 shouldn't be much of a problem either.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

(Q)Anna Shkudun (UKR) d. Raluca Olaru (ROU) 64 16 64

At this point I really want to know her general motivation to keep on playing, because this is just ridicolous. I don't mean the way she fell down the rankings, but whenever she kind of made an impact by beating a higher ranked opponent, she is losing to the next uber scrub.

Where does she see herself in the future? Becoming an eternal journeywoman?

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Thanks!

I haven't seen these so far.

However, I can't believe that she is happy with the current situation. Does she expect that progress will come without work? I know she tells otherwise, but words are words.



Even if she only plays 1/20 of the above, it should be enough to beat players like this Shkudun with ease. She must be a shadow of her former self, that's sad.
We are discussing about players like Wozniacki whose games detoriate, but in case of Olaru, it's more than detoriation, it's like forgetting how to play tennis.

And talking about the rivalry in the team, it's good to see that she is positive about it, but in all honesty, it really went downwards with her when Dulgheru and Halep emerged, which is actually a good proof how that concurrence really influenced her...

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

What actually happened to Raluca? She was the most promising young Romanian at one stage...and then just disappeared.
