Rurac was ranked in the top 10 in unofficial world rankings in 1948 and 1949. For that reason, she is considered by many to be one of the best female players ever to come out of Romania. She played for Romania's Federation Cup team. Despite being Romanian, she was ranked in the U.S. Top Ten during her stay in the country. She was ranked No. 9 in 1951.
At the tennis tournament in Cincinnati, Rurac reached seven finals: four in doubles and three in singles. She won the singles title in 1949 and was a finalist in 1950 and 1951. She won three titles in her four doubles finals appearances, with titles coming in 1948 (with Dorothy Head), 1949 (with Nancy Morrison) and 1950 (with Beverly Baker Fleitz). Her other doubles finals appearance was in 1951 (with Sue Herr).
