Back to back titles on clay and grass....this time last week she was still playing on clay!

VERY impressive! Well done Simona

she plays "old school" tennis. She thinks and creates the attack. She does not risk shoots

this time last week she was still frustrated of her 3 losing streak in the finals.
What a week can do !!
I admire such sportsmen and women and Simona is top of the list.
Amazing change coming from no where, only her new coach knows what happened!

I swear she has Federer/Henin qualities NOW! She does not waste balls anymore. If she cant take a good shoot then she just hits a crossover to the other side going above the center of the net. Not online shoot. A different person. No more nerves, everything is calm and relaxed.
I am not objective of course...

Re: Hertogenbosch F: Simona Halep def. Kristen Flipkens 6-4 6-2

For those who do not know yet:

40 days ago Simona was ranked 68 in the world.
Next monday she will be ranked 32 in the world.
The race to Istanbul, ranking since start of the year, shows rank 18 next Monday !!
Not bad for someone who had a career going no where just 2 months ago.
New coach !!! - what a story

I wonder if she is the first player to go from titleless to winning two events in a row


Amazing for simo, when i saw her in Rome i knew she was finally finding her right balance between defence and offence...but that's just amazing

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I do think Simona is now going to have to give her new coach a bit of a raise. After her last couple of weeks, I wouldn't be surprised if there were few players on the tour who would be tempted to try to poach that guy away from her. Simona has to make sure that isn't allowed to happen.
