Re: Is Simona Halep really overrated/overhyped?
I think that's the wrong attitude to have though. She should play to please herself, not "a lot of people," because for a lot of people great is not good enough and they are really impossible to please. And it only gets worse the better she (or any other player) gets. When you reach the top hundred they predict that you'll never make the top fifty. When you make the top fifty they predict that you'll never make the top twenty. When you make the top twenty they predict that you'll never make the top ten. When you make the top ten they predict that you'll never make the top five. And when you make the top five and win 7 tournaments they claim that it's meaningless because you haven't won a slam. Chances are they if she wins a slam they will call it a fluke. And if she wins multiple slams they will point to other players who have won more slams than she has. So don't try to prove anything to anyone other than yourself is what I would say.
Yeah she can laugh off what people may say,but its impossible for her to stay on top 5 in 2015 with what's so far made fans proud of her this season,which in some ways.means a failure to prove to herself.
Human beings are prone to comparision and comparision sets jealousy in motion.
