Sorana is ranked #27 this week, so she is coming close to Dulgheru and Niculescu who were ranked #26 at their best.
She has nothing to defend in Miami and a really great draw to reach R3 and get at least 80 ranking points.
In view of the coming weeks she will play Charleston where she has nothing to defend, and even more interesting the MM in Casablanca where she is very likely to be Top seed. So her chances to get into a very good position for the big claycourt tournaments are huge.
Still we have to keep in mind the 130 points from Barcelona where she won't play this year as the tournament got canceled.
Sorana is comfortably ranked in the Top 30 in the Race, though, so no direct pressure on her in the next couple of weeks.
