While Ralu
I'm certainly not convinced Olaru is superior to Cirstea. Sorana has had two tournaments this year where she has beaten not one, not two, but three top 100 players. Raluca has yet to ever beat more than two top 100 players in a tournament. When Sorana gets on a roll and gets a good opportunity that seems to be when she plays her best tennis. That bodes very well for the future. Sorana is also a full year younger than Raluca so in terms of age she is actually well ahead of where Raluca was a year ago. I would still say longterm it is impossible to make a sensible judgement on which one will have a better career. I can only say time will tell.

I also believe Monica Niculescu will be very much in the mix amongst the top Romanians too.
