Romanian tennis might spend much of its time looking at Simona Halep, the rapid and impressive rise of fellow Romanian Ana Bogdan has been equally impressive. While her #2 ranking at Junior level was very impressive, it’s her constant perseverance to come back from challenge and adversity that makes Bogdan such an interesting personality.
She holds an impressive career record at ITF level, winning an impressive 11 of her 17 Finals. With her first wins coming in 2011, in Izmir, Turkey, she’s taken part in a variety of tournaments across Turkey. Indeed, she won – five times in a row in 2013 – tournaments in Antalya, Turkey, beating the likes of Zuzana Luknarova and Ekaterine Gorgodze.
Her present trophy streak at this level is very impressive, too, with four wins on the spin from 2015-2016. Wins against fellow compatriot Cristina Dinu and also Susanne Celik made sure that, for many, Bogdan stands out as one of the brightest sporting stars from Romania.
Though it’s now time to step up to WTA level tournaments, the Romanian looks more than capable of making that adjustment. With immense skill and no shortage of positive attitude, there’s little to realistically hold back this blossoming star.
