My name is Alexandra Dulgheru, I am a professional tennis player. I am an open minded and open hearted person. I am sociable and creative. I love to dance and sometimes to paint. I adore my nephew. I idolise my sister – she’s the reason I started tennis. I am grateful to my parents for their unconditional support & persistence. I was and still am inspired by Steffi Graf & Martina Hingis and dream to be like them one day.
