https://www.facebook.com/Soranacirstea/posts/2420644221285178Dupa 12 ani de jucat pentru Romania,a venit momentul sa imi anunt oficial retragerea din echipa nationala de Fed Cup.
La 16 ani si 14 zile am jucat primul meci,fiind si astazi cea mai tanara debutanta din istoria tarii noastre!
Am reprezentat cu mandrie si onoare tricolorul de fiecare data cand am avut ocazia!
Simt ca mi-am facut datoria si acum este momentul sa predau stafeta noii generatii!
As vrea sa multumesc cu aceasta ocazie colegelor de echipa,federatiei,capitanilor,antrenorilor si celor care au pus umarul la succesul nostru! Dar mai ales romanilor care m-au sustinut atat de frumos de-a lungul anilor!

12 Dec 2018
Romania’s Sorana Cirstea has announced that she will no longer compete in Fed Cup by BNP Paribas, drawing her 12-year career in the competition to a close.
Addressing her fans through her Facebook page, Cirstea, who made her debut for Romania at just 16 years of age, said that she had “been representing my country with pride and honour every time I had a chance to play.”
“I feel like I have done my duty,” she continued. “And now is the time to pass the relay baton onto the new generation.”
Cirstea became the youngest player ever to represent Romania when she took to the court aged 16 years 14 days against Sweden in a Europe/Africa Zone Group I clash in 2006.
Since then, the 28-year-old has gone on to represent her country in 19 ties, boasts an impressive 11-6 win-loss record in singles, and holds a 16-13 win-loss record in the competition overall.
She concluded on Facebook, “I would like to thank my teammates, the Federation, the captains, the coaches and everyone who was involved in our success, and especially the Romanian crowd that has been supporting me over the years.”
