Game and skills analysis Camelia POSTOACA (ROU)

The following observations are of course my personal view and do not claim to be the “truth”!

Here comes Camelia POSTOACA (ROU):


  • very good attacking qualities especially forehand topspin in all situations
  • good footwork
  • nice use of long pips when taking pushes early above table: Pushlifting the ball thus putting pressure on the attacker
  • good backhand defence
  • good forehand serves
  • nice occasional blocking with long pimples on backhand


  • sometimes attacking too often or too rushy
  • never defending on forehand, not even when it makes sense or attack is not really an option
  • not defending with backhand when confronted with topspins down the middle/into her body which would be better than just lifting the ball back with forehand


  • practise defending with backhand from middle of the table
  • practise occasional defending with forehand
  • practise some serves with backhand
  • try to find better balance between defending and attacking
