Amazing work by SiGOATna! It seems around the time people started calling her "Simugna" on this board, she started playing better. Back to back titles on clay and grass is quite a feat. She's going to be one to watch this year.

So happy for Simona! Before Rome, I thought she was going to fall out of the top 100, but now, she's in the top 30 and rising! What an achievement, and she has a beautiful game. She's so sweet too, such a lovely, shy personality.

Kirsten Good week though, and her speech wasn't that bitter.

They certainly haven't done too well, but lately they have become more consistent.

Kristen Flipkens has a really bad attitude. I remember thinking she did when Radwanska hit that behind-the-back shot against her and she didn't even laugh or applaud the shot. Now she confirmed it with this match. Get a sense of humor, lighten up.

Flipkens sat down on the chair MP down complaining about the weather in Florianapolis vs Puchkova and argued for a long while too. Disgusting bitch.

Congrats to Simona on an amazing couple of weeks. And to her long-time fans who are seeing their dedication starting to pay off. I know what that feels like - it's really good!

Will be interesting to see if she can sustain the results with her new gameplan and start to take out some of the higher ranked players. Wimbledon will be a good test of that.

I'm a big fan of both players. I think you people need to lay off Flipkens. This is a COMPETITIVE SPORT and nice guys ( or gals) often finish last. Even the goddess Serena had a melt down in a US Open Final a few years ago. No one is perfect all the time, so cut them some slack.

I "found" her about 2 years ago and saw then something special even if she didn't had results. A great game here and there but she never managed to hold it together and was losing badly many times, crying with emotions.
On April this year she got a new coach Andrei Mladenea and started to change... a month later she reached the semis in Rome! Amazing change and a great sports story!
I am not greedy, keeping the rankings high is good enough for me. She will be ranked 32 in the world career high on Monday. She was ranked 68 only 40 days ago. 36 places jump in 40 days...
She must be very tired. Anything in Wimbeldon is just a bonus imo

yes, Flipper isn't that bad. She complimented Simona today about her being in the best shape of her life and living on a cloud of her own

Congrats Simona I've always seen the name around but never knew what type player she was.

I took the photo in your avatar back in either 2007 or 2008. How random.

Back to back titles on different surfaces, and with some impressive scorelines too. Congrats and good luck in Wimbledon.
