Romanian Tennis Player Florenta Mihai

Florenta Mihai

Florenta Mihai was born on 2nd September, 1955 in Romania. Her career records two Grand Slam runner up positions, one in the singles finals of the French open in 1977 which she lost to Mima Jausovec, and the Mixed doubles Final in the French Open 1977 again partnered with Ivan Molina, which she lost to John McEnroe and Mary Carillo.

Mihai’s Grand Slam record was not very touching. She never competed in any Australian Open event throughout her career, She played in the Us Open three times in which she was out in the first round in 1976, the second round in 1979 and reached as far as the third round in 1977. Her Wimbledon record is also not very impressive with her reaching the first round only in 1976, 1978 and 1980. She managed to reach the second round in the Wimbledon in 1977. Her French Open record is a little impressing as she reached the first round in 1975 and 1978 and managed to reach the semifinals in 1976. However the main victory came in 1977 when she reached the French Open singles finals. It is an idea that Mihai enjoyed playing on the clay courts of the French Open which is the main reason of her success in the only Grand Slam event. She has also reached the Finals of the Mixed Doubles match on the clay courts of the French Open as well in 1977 where she was paired with her Colombian partner.
