Hello everybody,

I would like to create a Forum for all the new kids on the Romanian tennis courts. Here I would like to mention all our Future and Challenger Players like: Adrian Ungur, Victor Crivoi, Gabriel Moraru, Victor Ionita, Adrian Cruciat, Artemon Efremov, Adrian Gavrila and all the others that are struggling to get in a higher position in the ATP Ranking. Let's make them known... :)

Well, Artie is 26 years old, he still has a chance to do something in the Challenger, only that he doesn't wish that anymore. He is more focused on a coach career and he's quite good at that. This year he took under his "protecting arm" a young german called Thomas Gilner. Thomas seemed very happy of this arrangement, i don't know what is the final result. We wait and see. Fot the other ones I think Catalin Buzatu ould have a nice career if he focuses more on tennis (he has a solid background). About Alex and George I don't know very much, I say Luncanu this year but too little to make an opinion. I'm waiting for the next year to see them in action.

lol...when i said "and another one...miru u know who" i was refering at Cata Buzatu. Why do u say he has a solid backgroud. I am telling u from sure sources that Catalin doesn't have such a bright future in tennis cauz he doesn't have the "joy of the game" anymore but..who knows...maybe he will descover tennis all over again ( alone or with someones help) :)

I have seen a good romanian player : Florin Mergea who was in final in a future tournament in france but he loses in final. His ranking is 260 but he is only 20 years so he can progress. :)
I know he has already won a game in an ATP tournament this year (Newport)

When I was saying "solid background" for Cata I was talking about the influences his family has, don't forget he manage to get WC at Brasov Challenger and Open Romania. I know he doesn't have that "joy" that's why I said he should focus more on tennis and not on other offcourt activites. Anyway he's yougn and if he chooses to stop playing tennis he has many other options to choose from.

r_alynutza_86
10-24-2005, 09:19 AM
are you refearing the influence that his family has upon him or the influence they have in the tennis world?And...i don't wanna be rude..but...i heard that u know him personaly?is that true?i could'n know at what tournam he had Wild Card cauz i never heard of him . I heard of him this year at BCR cauz...lol..a friend of mine liked him and kept showing him to me.i hope u can answer my new questions.tnx.oh and...how didi u manage to make those photos of him?

Hey to everyone,
Sorry Ralukutza but I had classes and I didn't have time to answer in the morning. So I'll answer now :) I know Cata personally, I took him an interview and afterwards we remained friends and keep in touch. He's a great guy, just like his father. When I was talking about a solid background I was talking about the influence his father has in the Romanian Tennis World. I have the pictures at a bigger size, but I made them smaller to be esier to upload them.
When I have time I'll post the pictures with Horica :) Any other questions girls?

Victor Ionita is doing ok at Futures this year :) He's been a semifinalist at Spain F7, a finalist at Italy F5 and winner at Spain F6 :)

Today he won Italy F8 Futures 2006 ( Frascati, Rome ) :banana:
F: (1)Victor Ionita d. (8)Francesco Piccari 76(6) 64 :D

He was 238 before this victory and I hope he'll improve his rankings ;)

Next tournament, a Challenger :Costão do Santinho in Florianopolis.(BRAZIL)

Mult succes Victor!! :yeah:

Luncanu didn't lose a single set in 4 games up tot the semifinals in RG juniors, but then disaster struck when he lost to Martin Klizan (SVK) 0-6 3-6. Klizan went up to 6-0 3-0 in about 25 minutes, Luncanu entered somehow in the game after that and went from 1-5 to 3-5 in the second set, but it was too late.
Too bad, I think he had a great shot at the title.

Mara_M

All his matches in singles and doubles. He was fav. 8 in singles, but all the better seeded players in his way lost before meeting him.

Next week Luncanu is supposed to come back in the Romanian Futures Circuit, where he already reached a QF and two R16 this year. He had WC's in all Romanian Futures by now, but if he continues like this soon he may not need them :)

Mara_M
06-09-2006, 05:13 PM
so he'll be to bucharest futures from june 17,no?

dlgicu
06-09-2006, 05:22 PM
Actually he already has a WC for Romania F6, Brasov. His match in the 1st tour will be programmed no sooner than Monday June 12, so he should have plenty of time to come back and play.
Now I don't know how he feels after the 7 games he played this week, if he wants to make his French trip any longer etc...

Hi everyone, I'd like to ask you all for little help. I'm looking for a romanian guy who's living in bucharest or near bucharest, I don't know exactly. His name is Alex, and last name I think Nickon. He was born in 1988 and he plays tennis for many years. I met him in Turkey last summer, but I lost contact with him...I also know that he has some cousins in Greece and that's all I know about him, Here's his photo so if anyone here can help me with some information, I'd really appreciate it.

19 year old Bodgan Andrii is a potential Romanian no.1
Read his interview here: http://www.inside-tennis.net/tennis-stories_559_Interview-with-promising-Romanian-player.html

Does anyone know this player? What do you think?

Not really one of Romania's best prospects, at least in my oppinion. For instance, in 2007 he played qualies in 12 of the 18 Romanian Futures + qualies in Timisoara and Constanta challengers and managed to enter the MD only once, at F5, losing in the 1st round.

This year, he only played qualies in 2 tournamnets, BCR Open and F18, losing both times in the 1st round.

Honestly, I think that the author simply needed to quickly send in an article and accidentally finding out that the Romanian guy sitting next to him and speaking English, is also a tennis player, decided to make this interview.

Anyway, good luck to Andrii!

You can trace him in the ITF Futures circuit, where, compared to 2008, he improved a lot, winning 2 tournaments (Romania F4 and Germany F9), reaching once the final, once the semis and 3 times the QF.

Somebody on a Romanian forum wrote that since approximately half a year he lost the financial support from his sponsors, maybe this is affecting him, too.

Looks like next week he'll play Romanian F11 in Oradea. Watch him there ;)

Thanks for this! :yeah:

I will definitely try and keep an eye out for him in the future. I'm not used to following the men's challengers events, so it might be a bit confusing, but I'll give it a go! :lol:

Marius Copil did a good stuff last week at Bolzano, defeating Francesco Aldi and Matteo Marrai on home ground, then winning 1st set against a Martin Klizan in top form (that was the only set Klizan lost entire tournament!)

This week Marius will play Romania F14 in Arad, his home city...hopefully he will reach at least Semi's :)

Keyser Soze
08-23-2009, 07:58 PM

Petru-Alexandru had an okay tournament in Astana this week. ;)

And I got to watch him play. He has a nice service action and can really tee off on his forehand, but he needs to find some middle ground with his game. When it's on, he can really fire down some nice winners, but it goes off and he misses by huge margins far too often. :(

Thanks Tanya! I don't know anything about Vasile or Alexandru, could anyone help me out?

they are Romania's best prospects, born both in 1993, Ciprian in January, Vasile in December. Darius Bragusi would be another guy from the same age group; he lives and traines himself in France since the last 4 years or something.

as for the pictures they are very nice, but the description is wrong. in order to recognise them, i can tell you that Ciprian is the taller one :)
