Ty for clarification. Raducanu is 100% a Romanian prime name so i knew that at least her father is Romanian. She even has a Romanian look. Hope she does well in the future. I will try to keep an eye on her.

Ps: It wasn't necessary to translate an article from Romanian to english. :p

Last year when Emma played the U12 Orange Bowl where she lost in the 1st round to Whitney Osuigwe (who's since won a G4 title this year and pushed the semi-finalist Levashova this week at the GA tournament in Mexico) & she ended up winning the title, but it's also worth noting that Emma then won 10 straight matches to win the U12 consolation draw. Obviously not as good as the actual title but still a great effort. :yeah:

Lost 2nd set. Emma's serve and backhand seem error rone, but always but a ince, so she nets a lot of balls an inch or two below the net. Her opponent is a lot taller too.

Emma loses 6-0 3-6 4-6.

Her serve just fell appart, she literally must have had a serving % of 20 in the 2nd and 3rd sets, but in a way that if she was 3 inches taller it would hae been a lot of good serves just over the net.

:crying2:

If it's any consolation, she and Holly are still in the doubles.

The winning streak comes to an end. No Sniguring at the back.

Too late:(.

I know, I know. But I wanted to post some biographical info, and I thought, if it's not in her own thread, I'll never know where to find it again.

I'm not sure Emma's playing any more meaningful events this year, and then after she's lost in R1 at Tarbes(*) next year to some unknown local wild card, probably no one will post in the thread again for 3 years, or something...

(*) She may have to qualify, if we don't do reciprocal wild cards
Well she did lose in R1 of Tarbes, though not to a wild card. There now follows three years of thread inactivity, broken after she reaches the SF of a G4 and someone asks whatever happened to her.
