Queen Alexandra and the new wave of Romanian tennis ladies

Alexandra Dulgheru

Alexandra Dulgheru

“Alexandra Dulgheru caused one of the sensations of 2009 when she won the Premier-level Polsat Warsaw Open as a qualifier ranked No.201.”

A year has passed, and the young tennis player is defending her title in Warsaw these days – successful so far up to the quarter finals. The WTA magazine has caught up with her for an interview – read it here.

After the “New Wave of Romanian Cinema”, there seems to be a “New Wave of Romanian Tennis Players”, a bunch of young ladies who look promising in the circuit. Don’t remember seeing such a large Romanian line-up on the female starting list of the Roland Garros tournament, ever. So aside from Queen Alexandra, watch out for these princesses too:
