Mihaela, 30, is currently ranked 24th in the WTA standings of the singles test, this being the highest spot in his career.
Romanca was close to the first win in a WTA tournament, disputing the finals of the Prague tournament, where she was defeated in the final by Petra Kvitova.
In the Roland Garros tournament he got the best result of his career in a Grand Slam tournament, reaching the finals.
And on the grass did well this season, reaching up to the quarter finals at Nottingham, the Birmingham semifinals, and the 3rd round at Eastbourne, while at Wimbledon he reached the third round, where was eliminated by Karolina Pliskova, Mihaela being very close to winning that game.
In the tournament in Bucharest he reached the semifinals, where he was surprisingly beaten by the Croatian Petra Martic, the Romanian having some problems of adaptation during the game.
The 23-year-old US player is now ranked 73th in the WTA standings.
The best result of this season came in the Auckland tournament, before the Australian Open, where it reached the semifinals, and at Indian Wells it reached the third round.
On the grass only a few wins, one of which was at Wimbledon against Marketa Vondrousova in the first round, and in the second round was defeated by the Belgian Elise Mertens.
The match of the San Jose tournament will be the first meeting between the two players, not having the chance to meet up until now in the circuit.
Mihaela Buzarnescu returns to the circuit after a week’s break following the tournament in Bucharest, meeting a player who feels very good on this surface.
Romanca starts with the first chance, being a more experimental player, with notable results this season, while the opponent crosses a rather bad season.
If he manages to control his emotions on the field, Mihaela Buzarnescu should impose himself without much trouble in front of Sachia Vickery, his game being very well adapted to all surfaces.
