In doubles she can still accomplish a lot. In singles... not so much, because I don't think she'll even try to make it happen.

Unfortunately I don't see this happening. I think she only played here because it pays well to lose a first round in WTA. Losing in the same round in a ITF is not as rewarding financially, so I don't think she'll ask for any WC to play singles.

Here everything agreed with her: her hometown, the fact that the Federation loves her... Don't get me wrong, I'm ok with that. Nothing wrong with her receiving the WC in the first place, because I don't know honestly which one of the other Romanian girls would have deserved it more than her at this point. Ana Bogdan never asked for one to begin with and it seems to me she did the right thing considering how well she does in Bad Gastein. Cadar and Bara, the next ones in the WTA rankings, are miles away in terms of both experience and technique.

So don't put your hopes too high, I'm afraid this wasn't a comeback match, but just a paycheck day for Raluca.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!

I'm pretty sure that I read in an interview she gave after having lost in Wimbledon QR1 last year that it's not possible for her to maintain a singles career at that point, simply because her body wouldn't allow it.

She might fill up some q-draws in the future when too many players pulled out before, but that's it.

Not to mention that she is far away from a position in singles that would allow her to make a living (rusty footwork, error-prone forehand motion, total lack of depth..). Focusing on doubles is the best option for her.

It seems it's the total opposite unfortunately . it's financially . Sad to hear this : http://m.prosport.ro/alte-sporturi/t...volua-12909658.

This is one of the reason why i was mad on Cadantu. You have to give everything when you are in position, you have to fight for every ball, every match against anyone to win, because you might be sorry later.

Re: Romania's Finest, Raluca Olaru!
