Re: Dubai QR2: Simona Halep def. (5) Maria Jose Martinez-Sanchez 6-1 6-1
Halep played really well against a good Hantuchova and obviously Azarenka. Good to see she has taken that form into the quali. Unfortunately there is only one easy spot for a qualifier against Pavs. The rest is really tough with Hantuchova, Safarova and somebody else in form.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: Cibulkova (President), Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson.
