nice Sorana interview from jr tennis.com

At the 2006 Eddie Herr International
Sorana Cirstea


with Sorana Cirstea
November 27, 2006
Welcome back to the Eddie Herr International.
Thank you.
You're only 16 and how many times have you been here?
This is my fourth time here so I was thinking this is the place I played the most. I feel so good here. It feels like home now.
Every year you seem to do so well here and you've had some good results.
Yes, the first year I won the 14's and last year I lost the final in the 18's. I seems to be pretty well going here.
And let's not forget doubles also?
Yes, I lost in the 18s finals here also, so I have to defend a lot of points.
What is so special about the Eddie Herr?
First of all it's like the end of the year and I am not playing so many tournaments at this time. Also it's nice coming here and playing in warm weather and also playing the Orange Bowl and maybe the Yucatan Cup in Mexico. I don't know, it's different then Europe. It's good training here. I come one week before to train outdoors.
Do you have friends here?
Yes, there are a lot of kids from Romania here; like 15 or so. Everywhere there are Romanians, so I feel really really like in my country. It's nice here, only thing is it's so hard to practice. You have to find courts.
The only sad thing was canceling the Opening Ceremonies; they were so nice. All those years, I really liked it. It was something special, not all tournaments have it. If you come alone and meet all the kids from your country and you represent your country, you feel like a team.
Most tournaments you go to in the ITF don't have the younger age groups, do they?
No. We have a few boys under 18's, girls under 18's and we have under 16's. I don't think we have under 14's but we have a few girls under12.
Does the Romanian Federation send everybody over here?
No. Everyone is on there own. The first year when I came here, when I was thirteen, I came with the federation. It was really nice. We had practice all together, but now everyone comes at their own expense. It's not like a federation tournament anymore.
How long will you continue to play juniors?
Actually, I'm not playing the Australian any more. Next year I think I will be just playing Roland Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open; those three junior tournaments. I want to play more WTA, like go faster and faster. I feel bad this is my last year here so I hope to do well and have a really good memory for the last time.
You have some great results in juniors, especially in Milan at the Italian Open.
Yes, I played really good there. It was a really good tournament. I was hoping to do better at Rowland Garros but then I went to Belgium and didn't feel that good. And then at Rowland Garros, I don't know, maybe I lost my feeling and everything else. It wasn't like I wanted it to go but you know, you have periods of up and down all the time.
Do you prefer clay or hard courts?
I prefer hard courts because I don't have to move so much. I also enjoy clay because I started on clay and grew up on clay. My game I feel is better on hard courts. I feel more comfortable on hard courts.
Of course, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has the year end world ranking all stitched up. Are you disappointed that other high ranked players, like Caroline Wozniaki, Ayumi Morita or Ksenia Milevskaya are not here or you don't think it matters?
For me it doesn't matter so much because I have to focus on my game. If I'm thinking of who is here or it puts pressure on me. Anyway, I'll meet them in other tournaments.
I was just talking to Pavel Chekhov and he said something interesting. He said when you play a junior you never know how they're going to play because they're working on their game all the time.
Yes, it's like I'm playing a girl today and in one week it's another score. It's not the same everytime. This week I can win it really easy against a girl and in two weeks you can lose really easy. You know each other already, it's just on the day it's who ever is really good. I know every girl here, in the top ten or top twenty, because we play all the time against each other.
Any family members with you?
I am with my mom for the first time here. She has never been here before, so I have been trying to explain to her this and that. It's nice to be with my mom sometimes and then my coach is coming from Romania for Orange Bowl too.
Is it like a holiday for your mother?
Yes, but all the time she is calling my brother, who is eleven. She misses him so much. A part of her wants to come with me but a part of her wants to remain with him. It's like she tries to be with us both.
When was the last time you were in Romania?
I was there two weeks and I had to catch up on book work at school. When they see me again, they say I have to take a mark and I am like, OK.
So you go to regular school. Are you a good student?
Yes, I hope the tests are good but I don't know yet.
Good luck on your tests and your tennis this week.
Thank you.

She hit the ball hard and it was hard in the wind because it was blowing in every direction," said Sorana, runner-up in the 2005 championships. "She made me fight until the last point, but I really wanted to win this match. It made me stronger because I know the people are for her and I wanted to prove I can beat her in her club."

Sorana broke again to lead 6-5 in the topsy turvy third set. She had 40-15, but Michelle refused to give up. Sorana needed four match points to put her opponent away, finishing with an uncharacteristic drop shot, her first of the match. "I was just thinking I just go for it, I don't care anymore," Sorana said. "I know I should hit more drop shots but I just thought about it in the last point."

Sorana had the match in the bag, leading 6-3; 5-2, when the lucky loser made a last minute surge.

Sorana had a staggering five match points erased when serving for the match at 5-4, only to lose it for 5-all. The next game was no easier, as her opponent had an amazing six break chances, in the very long service game, not to mention nine deuces, before breaking to lead 6-5.

The brave Russian's strategy to run her opponent off the court, plus throwing in a good bunch of drop shots and lobs, worked before, but the pressure to hold to stay in the match may have been too great. She double faulted at 15-30 and again at ad-out, to lose in her sixth match point.

"At the end of the match I started to get a little bit tired and I couldn't focus," said Sorana. "When I had all those match points I tried to rush and I couldn't finish. I tried to go for a bit more and I didn't have enough patience, but I have to recover to get ready for my next match tomorrow."

Nikola, who lost to Urszula in the Eddie Herr quarterfinals last week, played just as compelling by upending Sorana today, coming back from behind in both sets. At 2-5 down she won five straight games for the first set and in the second set she came back from 1-4. "I put everything in my head and I started to play my game," said the Austrian, who won 7-5; 7-5. "She was angry and she started to hit the ball as hard as she can, but I wanted to make the point and not wait for her mistake."
