Re: INTERVIEW: Sorana Cirstea talk to me

Sorana was really nice and very happy! She imediately accept my invitation to give me te interview. She was sliming everytime!!! She was so kind! I just got impressed by her1 REALLY NICE GIRL! She reminds me a little bit of Ana Ivanovic.... The way she play, she move and speak... I think Sorana is the new "Inavovic". Very good player... It seems that she made a lot of work to get into Top 50 and really want to go up & up. She also smile to me when her match just end and when she was walking cross the court!!! I am very happy to meet her and have a little chat with her after the interview. So nice!!!
