Upset of the Day

In a stunning display of talent, Sorana Cirstea of Romania upset the #3 seed, Anna Chakvetadze of Russia in three sets. Introduced to tennis at age 4, she has steadily climbed the ranks since turning pro just a few years ago. Beating Anna was her first win over a Top 10 WTA Tour player. Sorana speaks Romanian, English, Spanish, and is studying French. Her favorite shot is her forehand. She enjoys playing all kinds of sports, shopping, reading, doing crosswords, and going to the movies. She has two parrots. And the player she most admires is Steffi Graf. Keep your eye on this young lady!
