Comeback from injury 2011
Roma had surgery on her back in the Autumn of 2009, and returned to match play in November 2010 playing team tennis for her homeclub of SALK. In her first match back she defeated Camilla Lundberg in straight sets.
Roma made her ITF comeback in Tallinn, where she qualified and lost in the first round of the main draw. Another loss followed to Mona Barthel at Roma's home tournament in Stockholm. Roma then won four matches in qualifying for the main draw in Antalya, where she was knocked out in the second round of the main draw. The following week she again qualified by winning four matches.
Roma has represented Sweden in the Fed Cup twice, playing in a doubles match partnering Ellen Allgurin against Romania in 2009, and another doubles match partnering Anna Brazhnikova against Switzerland in 2011. She won both matches.
Roma's style of play consists of a variety of spins and slices integrated into baseline play. She mixes her game up, breaking up baseline play with a variety of spins and slices, also using drop shots effectively. Roma is a solid player at the net, and has had much success in doubles.
