Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

She withdrew from a 25K in La Marsa, where she had some points to defend from a quaterfinal appearance form last year, and I'm not seeing her in any acceptance list for april, so she must be taking care of an injury

Anyway, I hope she'll be well in time and hopefully she'll make the qualies for Roland Garros. I miss her on the big courts!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Great news!

Raluca withdrew from La Marsa only to play the qualies for Katowice Open. This must be her first WTA in years! So exicted about this!

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

WTA Katowice, Quali Draw:

(2)Alexandra Cadantu v Yuliya Beygelzimer
(wc)Katarzyna Kawa v Corinna Dentoni
(wc)Magdalena Frech v Raluca Olaru
Alison Van Uytvanck v (7)Valeria Solovyeva

QR1 should be a walk in the park, apart from that I don't know what to ecpect from her.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Tough for Olaru. Alison Van Uytvanck is pretty good.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I don't know why, but I have a good feeling about Olaru.
I know she definetly wants to get back where she once was, we'll see how much she wants it from these qualies.

She's a walking bye on clay.

On the other hand Raluca has lost to Dentoni on Hard this year - nothing is impossible.

Aga Radwanska surely wouldn't agree.
I've seen her play on clay last year in Brussels. She was no cake walk for Aga

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I guess Alison benefitted from the home advantage. She is lucky winning back to back matches on clay at 25k level.
And Agnieszka herself is very woundable on clay.

If Simona wouldn't have brainfarted in the Brussels final who knows...

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Yeap, she received a WC and she made it to the QF (beating Pervak and Scheepers on the way, both ranked inside the top 50 at that time). Lost to Aga but she showed some promising tennis that week.

As for Halep... Too bad she didn't make the most of it then, I don't see her in another Premier final too soon

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

First match for Raluca since getting the final of the 10K Antalya in Feb. Great draw to shake off the rust, against 15 y.o. WC Magda Frech.

Raluca's on now. Just fed Magda a bagel in 24 minutes.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

Shaky second set, Raluca's serve was broken twice by an unranked player, but eventually got the job done, 60 63.

Good win for her!

GSM, 60 63.

The second set was much tougher, with Raluca having to come back a couple of times to win.
