2016Edit

Rus's low ranking meant she had to qualify for several ITF tournaments, successfully doing so seven times out of seven throughout the season. In February, she played on indoor carpet at $25k Altenkirchen, Germany, winning two qualifying rounds to enter the main draw, and winning another four matches to reach the final where she lost to Ysaline Bonaventure.

Rus won 39 singles matches in the ITF circuit, and with a 39-21 win/loss ratio she finished the year in the top 200 for the first time since 2013, as the 174th singles player in the rankings, moving 115 spots up from the previous year.

2017Edit

For the first time since 2014, Rus played the qualifying rounds of a major, at the Australian Open, losing in the first round to Roumanian Ana Bogdan in three sets. In March, she reached the quarterfinals of a $60k hard-court tournament in Zhuhai, China.

Rus went on a three-match losing streak, which included a qualifying round at the Morocco Open, a WTA tournament. She broke this streak at the women's singles qualifying for the French Open, where she won her first two matches against Viktoriya Tomova and Antonia Lottner. She lost the last qualifying match against compatriot Quirine Lemoine in three sets, despite having a match point.

Rus received a wildcard for the 2017 Ricoh Open, a WTA International tournament hosted in her homeland. This was Rus's first grasscourt tournament since 2014. In the first round, she upset 36-ranked Timea Babos in a 5–7, 6–2, 6–3 three setter. She won her second round match against Czech Andrea Hlaváčková in straight sets. In the Quarterfinals, she lost to eventual runner-up Natalia Vikhlyantseva in straight sets. This performance marked Rus's first wins at WTA level since the 2013 Gastein Ladies where she also reached the quarterfinals.[10] This also marked the first time Rus won a main draw grasscourt match since the 2012 Wimbledon Championships. As a result, Rus moved up 25 spots in the WTA rankings from world No. 183 to 158, her highest ranking in almost three years.

She won her first WTA title in the Swedish Open doubles at Båstad, partnering Quirine Lemoine. In the on-court television interview after the win Lemoine explained that the win was even more special because the two had been friends since they were ten years old.

NotesEdit

  • 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Total Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
  • 2 In 2014, the Toray Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
