Is Simona Halep really overrated/overhyped?
I know this topic has been discussed almost ad nauseam but it's usually only a few selected posters against Simona's fanbase so I wanted to see what the majority of TF really think. Feel free to share your opinion by voting in the poll.
So yeah, people call her "Hypelep" and say she's overrated for various reasons, mainly because she hasn't reached a SF/F in a slam yet and has yet to beat the likes of Vika, Maria or Serena.
OTOH I think she gets relatively little hype from the media or the WTA itself compared to other young(ish) players who have risen up the rankings. Which leads to one of Simona's biggest achievements, her incredible climb to world #5. That, combined with all the titles she's won recently on different surfaces should give people a solid reason to rate her among the world's best players today. Or do they actually rate her too high? What do you think?
