Raluca-Ioana Olaru (Romania) ~ 16 yrs old

Good luck Raluca in your RG final Sunday! :D :bounce:



Olaru earned her chance at the singles title with a 4-6, 6-0, 6-2 comeback win against Ayumi Morita of Japan and said she couldn’t be more excited to be so close to a debut singles junior grand slam title. “Oh, I’m extremely excited,” she said, with a broad grin. “I knew that I could do it before the tournament but of course I was a bit tense today in my match. This is new for me, it’s my first time and everyone is congratulating me, which is really nice. I think I have to try and not think about being in the final and be confident and tell myself that I deserve to win the title.”

-------------------------------------

Raluca is a very good clay-courter.

She won Astrid Bowl Charleroi, Belgian International Junior Championships last week. Made the finals the week before that at the Trofeo Bonfiglio "Campionati Internazionali D'Italia". Then made the semis before that at the International Junior Tournament "Citta' Di Santa Croce". Then before that made the finals at the Gerdau Tennis Cup. Then before that made the QF's at the Banana Bowl and a QF at the Uruguay Bowl. Then before those, she made another final at the Coffee Bowl (Copa del Cafe). All of these are on clay in 2005. This girl seriously rules the clay and has put together a 36-7 record this year! :eek:

Plus she's had impressive wins over Alize Cornet two times, Timea Bascinszky, Olivia Lukaszewicz, Evgenia Rodina, Ayumia Morita two times, and Anna Tatishvili! :bigclap:

GO RALUCA!

those are actually from the italian open junior tourney
Thanks. :wavey: I wrote Italian Open in Cibulkova's thread, so I dunno why I wrote Astrid Bowl here. :help: :p

Btw, Raluca's next tournament after RG is the International Junior Tournament, Offenbach/Germany. She is the 2nd highest ranked entry, but her new ranking makes her the highest entry. So hopefully Raluca will get the #1 or #2 seed. It takes place from the 7th-12th of June. Good luck Raluca! :D Show more of that impressive clay form!!!!!! :woohoo:

I saw her in Milan and I really liked her and her game... Too bad she lost :( Anyways, it was a good tournament! :) I think she played very well also in Paris even if she lost in the final...
Good luck :)
