^ So no Simo-Horia mixed doubles? :[

Well, with her ankle issue we should be happy if she plays at all. I do really hope to see them play together again at one of the other majors this year. :)

They wouldn't have been seeded anyway . Tecau will play with Mattek-Sands

A bit off-topic, but I gotta hand it to our Romanian boys, who did a better job in qualifying to the MD:
- Copil especially, who defeated 2 seeds on the way (which is a much more remarkable performance on ATP :p) :yeah:
- Albot (well, from RM), with some closer matches
- only Ungur didn't qualify, but being in the same section with Copil, one of them wouldn't have made it anyway.

Not looking good for the future...
What's worse, is that one of those 3 doesn't even play Top100 tennis anymore, being #209 in the Race.

On the positive side though, Monica shows promising signs that she might return to Top100.

Not looking good for the FedCup tie though. I'm not saying it'll be more difficult than Czech Republic, but a win in doubles will never be a guarantee against France, and we'll have to see in which form will Halep be, given the knee problems experienced yesterday.

Not holding my breath tbh, after all the details I got after the election and what happened there. I was a little more positive before.

The Romanian Tennis Federation soap opera will not end after this, unfortunately :( .


Also, it's the 2nd year with the fewest and not very significant Romanian ITF tournaments scheduled and all in lots of chapters everything is a mess. IDK what he'll be able to do in 6 months, with or without all the scandals from around:
