The World No. 1 Simona Halep ended her quest for a maiden Grand Slam title in style, but she was not the only Romanian tennis player who shined in Paris this year.
Irina Maria Bara made her Roland Garros debut this year and it was an amazing experience for her. In singles, Bara lost to American Caroline Dolehide in the final round of qualifying. Despite the loss she achieved her best result ever at a Grand Slam.
In doubles, the unseeded Romanian pair of Irina Maria Bara and Mihaela Buzarnescu made her major main draw debut, and powered to quarterfinal.
