Transilvanya Open tournament restrictions

Unfortunately, this year the tournament will take place without spectators according to the new rules proposed by the authorities, which were sent for approval to the Romanian Government.

It is very sad that this decision was taken, to ban the access of spectators, but anything should be done for public health. I am glad to be in Cluj again, to play this tournament. It will not be easy, but I am very happy that I am healthy and fit to play.
