I also think that it's the moment to dedicate her a thread (hopefully we have soon other threads for other young italians)

I add that she is 282 in WTA ranking and she has only 1 point to defend until february 2006.

Impressive in this beginning of 2005: she seems to be a winner; now she must demonstrate to win also in some more important tournament than 10k, but i'm quite trusting

Unfortunately she speaks practically only german, but noone is perfect

She is very strong...but why, instead of going to Fano during the second Wimbledon week, she goes to Bastad (swe) for then coming back in Italy to play in Cuneo???

I try to give an explanation: next week she'll be in Perigueux (France) and she probably hopes to win (and i hope too ). In Fano she should play qualies, instead in Bastad she probably will be in MD directly, so i think that she'll play in Fano only if they will give her a WC...

I hope i explained well my think

Yes, Romina has withdrawn in Perigueux ; perhaps she wants to play in Fano (75k) next week. It will be unlogic (unlogic , i hope it means something in english...) jump a french 25k and play in a swedish 25k, so i think she'll withdrew from Bastad too. I hope that Romina's future program starts in this way: Fano, Modena, Palermo...

Good luck Romina, wherever you go

Romina has conquered in Bastad (Swe, 25K) victories #56 and #57 of the year beating in first single round Marielle Dittmann 60 62 (always impressive first sets of Romina...) and in first double r. Cetkvoska/Nemeckova (76 64) with Claire De Gubernatis.

The chanche to partecipate at the next slam qualifications is always more near

I wait for a Romina's win in Bastad

I'm not sure she will play wta qualies... she seems to go very slow... first only 10k, now only 25k and 50k (why she avoided Fano?)...

However good luck Romina!

Summary of a Romina's interwiew published on magazine "Il tennis italiano" by Marco Iaria.

Beginning: i fall in love with tennis at the age of 4, looking my brother Romeo in a tennis lesson. I start to play by myself against a wall, until a master has seen me...
Switzerland: swiss federation has never helped me. It's their usual behaviour and this is the reason cause best swiss players don't partecipate to Fed Cup.
Italy: i love Italy and Rome in particular. Italian federation has always supported me
Parents: my father is born in Bergamo, north of Italy. In youth he transferred to Switzerland looking for work. Two years ago i have choosen italian nationality.
Coach: Marilene Losey, ex swiss player, is helping me since beginning of the year. But she is more a friend than a coach.
Trainer: no one. I train myself in two sport centers owned by my parents in Berne
Secret: knee's injury has forced me to an hard winter's workout, this has elevated my muscular power and penetration of shots.
Targets: i have great spaces of improvement on every kind of shot, in particular on serve and in volley
Ranking: i hope to become a top250 before the end of 2005. Then i will attack the wall of Top100.
Dreams: play for Italy in Fed Cup, win Rome and Paris
Hate: power tennis; my tennis is ancient, i love backhands and dropshots. Modern tennis is not a part of me
Love: football. I play in a club of Berne until 2000, year of the surgery operation at the shoulder. Also my father Roberto was a footballer. A great one: he played in the first league of Switzerland. I love football, but i prefer tennis...
Hobbies: i love music, ice hockey, Juventus football club and going around the city with my friends.

Do you know which is her program? Could she receive a WC for Palermo's qualifications?

Yes (too late answer? )

Yesterday Romina has played and won her first Wta match against an other youth italian promise, Giulia Gabba: 6-1 1-1 ret. the score of the first round of qualies in Palermo ($140k).
Today Rom will face Melinda Czink, #126 wta.

Last monday R. has gained her best ranks: 262 in single, 330 in double
