She never carried her runs into deep runs at the majors. Errani and Kerber DID and that's why they became top 10 players.
Nope.. Just because Simona hasn't finished her raise so far. It started on May

Quite funny to read through this thread now. All the debate about who improved the most. It should have been clear then, but it's definitely clear now.

This thread is one of the reasons (from 2013) why some Simona Halep's fans are too defensive sometimes!
Here we can find many of today's trolls regarding her (some of them with their names changed )

A few people can win somebody's heart in a lifetime.But, she has already occupied a spot in mine

So cute off-court , so deadly on-court ! Simona Halep

Re: After today SIMONA HALEP deserves most improved Player of the Year NOT SLOANE !

Two careers that have gone in very different directions since November 2013. In winning 6 tourneys in 5 months Simona got such a winning mentality that it was almost impossible not to continue to build on that. No, she didn't have the big wins or the Slam runs that Sloane had at the time, but she had the right attitude. Sloane just had "attitude" and the result is she's still waiting to even reach her first tour final. And right now, it seems she could be waiting a very long time for that day to come.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

Well..and that was Sloane's highlight so far. Simona's bigger things to worry about these days. ( Beat Masha.. )

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
The truth:
Serena Williams: Greatest African-American tennisplayer in history
21 majors:6366


Official Prince of the Royal Court

I guess she was placed too high to realize what it means to get there. Her press conference comments about the "other tournaments" are now so clear. She sadly not only accepted the throne offered to her by media (especially American) as the successor to Serena, but she believed herself deserving it with what she had done. Now in retrospect we/she/media realize that she's done little to deserve it, and thus she's falling to the place deserved by her work.

I fear what she will have to face in the media and on physiological level when she will face Madison, or when she will start having good results, the backlash for stupid loses. Just watch some of the talk around Simona's bad losses now and think of Sloane with the amplification of USA media and the investment they had in her, and the competition now with other American prospects.

That's true. However, Halepeno never got the hype, especially American hype that Stephens got. I think as long as Halepeno stays ranked near the top and continues to win she will get the American medias attention.
