TF: How and when did you start playing tennis?
OS: I started playing tennis when I was 5 years old in my birthtown in Romania. I was a very curious child and I wanted to know how tennis is played. And the tennis court was the place that I fell in love with. 

TF:  Do you have any tennis idols growing up?
OS: I was following different players, but I grew up watching Sorana Cirstea going up in the rankings. 

TF: If given a chance, who is your dream doubles partner? How about a mixed doubles partner?
OS: I would like to play doubles with Kim Clijsters as she can teach me more from her experience. Mixed doubles is my favorite part of the game and I would love to share the court with Horia Tecau

  3. I really love tennis but I have not seen oana. Yes Maria Sharapova’s story I’ve read and its understandable why people think she’s curt. Oana seems fun to talk to and her answers were crisp.

  4. I like watching tennis competition, and to be attending thr famous Wimbledon is the highlight of my tennis/travel dream. Thanks for sharing her awesome story. I will watch her career.

  5. You are so lucky to have chance to interview her. She sounds like a really down to earth person. I wish her all the best and hopefully I see her play a match soon.
