Hugely impressive. I hope she kicks on from this and asserts herself as one of the top players in the next few years. Such a nice game, breath of fresh air really

she is an AMAZING NEW player now. NO UNFORCED ERRORS. Maybe 2-3 in a match.
I hope she keeps it but we are all humans

She has that Federer/Henin touch!... she thinks on every ball! she does not take any risks.
Unbelievable change and I watch a lot of sports, not just tennis.
Perhaps the greatest post of hyperbole in TF history?

The Simona Halep of posters no doubt!

Legendary!

Re: Halep - Clay/Grass Titles In Successive Weeks

I think she's likely to be the first player to have won her first and second titles back to back...isn't she?

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Halep - Clay/Grass Titles In Successive Weeks

To be fair, there are only like 2-3 grass court tournaments, so the opportunity for anyone to do this is basically zero. It's not like everyone's out there trying to accomplish this.

That's accurate if you saw her play in last 2 weeks
