Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Cristina Dinu won the 10k-ITF in Antalya this week!

R32: Cristina DINU (ROU) def. Marion GAUD (FRA) 6-1 6-1
R16: Cristina DINU (ROU) def. Fatma AL NABHANI (OMA) (7) 6-2 6-2
QF: Cristina DINU (ROU) def. Oxana LYUBTSOVA (UKR) (2) 6-2 6-3
SF: Cristina DINU (ROU) def. Anastasia MUKHAMETOVA (RUS) (5) 4-6 6-1 6-3
F: Cristina DINU (ROU) def. Diana ENACHE (ROU) (3) 6-2 6-3

Beating four seeded players by losing just one set, also beating a compatriote in straights!

By the way, it's her third title for a 10k ITF in Antalya!
I think if she is climbing the rankings so fast, she will soon have her own thread!

Platon lost as a qualifier against the top seed Evtimova in round 1.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

I am still not sold on Cristina Dinu. I am going to wait and see how she does against better competition.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Great to see Dinu doing well. What I like about her is that she has a very "seniors" mentality, going for her shots instead of playing the consistency card which is is key to winning alot of junior matches. Once she gets her consistency, I can see her in the top 100 easily with her stroke making abilities and good movement.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

I'm very glad that Irina reached the second round of a G1 junior tournament, but the last weeks were very exhausting, so no problem in this loss

I wouldn't be surprised if Sabina loses to Donna again, but I hope it will be a very tough one!

So I assume you were not surprised after all as Sabina not only lost but abandoned the game.

And yes, it is about time for Irina to come back home. It's been too long since she started playing in South America. I thought 4 tournaments was way too much. The majority of her opponents played pretty much at home.

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Ilka also had to abandon her match back then, but she "only" played 3 tournaments in South America.
By the way, has anyone heard more about her current state?

On the other hand I'm glad that they can afford the money to travel to biger tournaments out of Europe. Look at how young they are and have already seen more from earth than most people have when they are old. I think they all collected some nice memories and important experiences and of course ITF points to build up their future!

I wish them good luck for the following weeks!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

Yes, I thought the same thing. That was some nice touristic tour of South America for both Ilka and Irina with different countries visited for each tournament.
As for Ilka, since I am a big fan I found on another message board that she had a minor back injury (some sort of stiffness), which forced her to withdraw from that last tournament. She said about 2 weeks ago to a third party that she didn't know where she will compete next.

Good to see that it isn't something serious!

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

ITF 10k Antalya:

Raluca Elena PLATON (ROU) def. Dia EVTIMOVA (BUL) (1) 6-1 2-6 6-4
Raluca Elena PLATON (ROU) def. Seda ARANTEKIN (TUR) 6-0 6-7(6) 7-5
Danielle HARMSEN (NED) def. Raluca Elena PLATON (ROU) 3-0 Retired

I hope it's nothing too serious and just tiredness...
But the upset in first round was a good sign for improvement!

Dinu lost in round 1 against Schoofs, but her opponent has trashed all other girls to the semis by now and Cristina had many matches to play during the last week...

Re: Watch out for Romanian Juniors!!

I can`t wait Ilka back on court. I put all my money that she will be in top 100 in 3 years. Maybe faster
