they both are in top ten juniors tour right now :eek: i don't think the Radwanskas or the Bondarenkos did that before. maybe the last sisters making top ten @ juniors are the Maleevas :worship:

They are too close in age to be sisters from the same mother and not nearly close enough to be twins. Just coincidence that they share the same last name and are both from Romania?

It's unusual, but it is possible to have 2 kids in the same year without them being twins. I attended high school with 2 sisters who are 11 months apart---one was born in January, the other in December :shrug:

Well, 11 months is not 8 months -- and here the difference is significant.

A hilarious thread. Everything seems to be wrong in the original post: `sisters' are not related, and concerning an assertion about Radwański sisters not reaching Junior Top 10, I may be wrong, but it seems that both reached #1 at some point of their respective Junior careers. In any case, they were multiple Junior grand slam champions.

Their mum might have been a tennis player, and we all know the second 'serve' is usually much slower than the first ...:crazy:

She made a point of telling us when we asked that she was Ana Bogdan and not the other Bogdan on the junior tour (Elena). I asked if she was related and she said they were not related only shared same surname.
