If you lok at the YE ranking, the ranking does indeed start from 0 every year.

Halep won 6 MM titles but at the big tournaments she achieved NOTHING. NADA. ZERO. ZILCH.

So when talking about Simona you consider Premier Tournaments as MM ? Considering the past champions in New Heaven and Moscow, it think she`s in the right place at this time, and hopefully she will have a carrier like Azarenka, Kvitova, JJ, or Wozniacki. As Simona said, one step at the time, started with MM, than Premier, TOC and if she`s healthy next year maybe we`ll see some bigger tournaments in her name. She came from 64 in the world up to 11, playing a great tennis, worked hard and made many sacrifices to be here, why do you always pick on her ?!?!

In those big tournaments Halep were usually not seeded, but in many cases even had the play qualification! So, why do you think, that she'll not be able to achieve MUCH better in 2014 being a seeded player? (And after she had so many experience this year to beat former Word No.1s, GS winners, and current top10-top30 players?)
(By the way: only the RACE starts from 0 every year, not the ranking.)

He is a troll , he is full of hate. No one said she will be multiple Grand Slam winner . But from his posts , he consider her top40-50 player.

Before Moscow , SImona was underrated on this forum, after her solid game there , lot of people , who maybe didn't saw her recently , liked her. And now her haters from the past are envious .

le:maybe there are some who want from her more than she is capable , but they are not totally insane. Her rank in race since ROME is 5-6 .

I dont agree with the ones who overrate her furure(but u can't condemn them , the future is not written , but you can condemn the ones who deny the present)

Agree with all this but was it just bad luck she was injured/tired during the bigger tournaments? She didn't seem to have such problems with the 6 titles she won...

Re: Bandwagon Schmandwagon. Halep is the real deal.

I can understand the skeptism.....because Simona performed so poorly at the majors, but is still ranked this high. It's the question: is she ranked because she's this good and the best is yet to come..or is her ranking 'artificially' inflated because she played ( and won of course) enough lower events?

In the ideal world you want to build your ranking up by doing well at the majors and other big tourneys...so next year obviously she'll have to plan her schedule better so that she can be fresh at the majors and then we'll see if she can still mantain her ranking.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Well, many users that are not Halep's fans posted in this thread and called you a troll. So, could you just go and stop trolling? Nobody is interested in you saying the same thing with no real arguments.

so true. In many tournaments, by the time she got to the Main Draw, she had already played 2 or 3 matches.
People are annoyed that Halep overtook their "beloved, hyped and Sloaned" favorite. I don't think they mean all the mean things they are saying about Halep. They are just hurting. I feel sorry for the Halep's haters. Because Halep is here to stay. By the end of the Aussie Open, she'll be a solid top-10.

Halep is an exciting player. She knows when to calm down.... when to turn it up.... when to go on the attack. She can sense her opponent and figure out how to maneuver out of trouble, without bringing her coach on-court.

She is a very independent thinker out there. I wish we had more girls like Halep, instead of some cry babies who run to their coaches 10 times in a single set. "That's disrespectful".
