MEET SORANA CIRSTEA

Cirstea began her tennis career at a young age, turning heads ever since reaching her first final on the Budapest clay at just 17 years old. Only a season later she lifted her first trophy at Tashkent in 2008, then reached her first Grand Slam quarter-finals at the 2009 French Open and played the biggest final of her career in Toronto in 2013. That same season she peaked at number 21 in the world, though she has held her place in the top 50 for a decade. Despite her experience she is still only 27 and much of her story is yet to be written. Alongside her achievements in both singles and doubles, she is also one of the most charismatic players on tour.

‘I’m thrilled to take part in my first Tie Break Tens tournament in one of my favorite cities. It’s a really exciting format where anything can happen, and I’m sure the atmosphere in Madison Square Garden will be incredible’

TIE BREAK STRENGTHS

SOLIDITY

Solid baseline play on both her forehand and backhand is by far her greatest strength. Team that with unrivalled control and discipline, a good serve and an ability to cover the whole court, it’s no surprise that Cirstea is a stand out player.

VERSATILILITY

Her experience in doubles, a discipline where she has won four titles and played in a further five finals, has enabled her to improve her game and skills at the net.

INTELLIGENCE

An invaluable asset both on and off the court. While away from the game she has taught herself four languages. And with a racquet in her hand she has the intuition and anticipation to read the game like no other.
