Ruse for many years among the promising tennis players who must shoot. But while Gabriela is treading water and blaming it herself. After all, a Romanian has the opportunity to go to WTA tournaments and try her hand at qualification. But she doesn’t do it, but is stuck in the Futures, where she plays with rivals at the top 300-500 level. Ruse builds his game through aggressive actions on the back line. During the match, she shoots a lot of winners, but also makes many unforced errors. For this reason, the tennis player is not able to compete at the same level at a distance.
The Romanian national team in the Federation Cup stands without its leader Simone Halep. The team’s application got the 166th racket of the world Elena Gabriela Ruse. The tennis player will hold her first career match for the national team. Undoubtedly, the excitement will affect.
At the start of the current season, Ruse played three qualifying matches at Australian Open. In the decisive match, McNally lost (1-6, 1-6). I also tried my hand at the ITF, but in the first match lost to Rus (6-4, 1-6, 1-6).
Alexandrova stands out for its attacking potential. After all, she is able to complete the rallies in one or two hits. But a Russian woman is extremely important to have regular game practice, because otherwise she does not feel the ball well and makes many times more unforced errors. This season began for Catherine with a title and a long series of victories. But only she met with the top 10 rival Petra Kvitova, then she immediately lost her way. This indicates that Alexandrova is psychologically unstable.
In the match of the Federation Cup in the Romanian Cluj-Napoca, Ekaterina Alexandrova will also be the leader for the first time in her career. The tennis player is now the first racket of Russia, occupying 28th place in the WTA ranking.
The start of the 2020 season was successful for Alexandrova. She took the title at the first tournament of the season in Shenzhen. In Melbourne, she reached the third round, losing to Kvitova (1-6, 2-6).
