Yeah, no one seems to be on.

Go Simona, win Madrid! Or at least arrange a match up with Serena

Last point was absolutely hilarious. I would have broken my racquet on the spot.

I only saw the first set. Simona completely disappeared in the middle of it. I'm glad she got a straights win in the end.

Not much to say, some good serving from Simona (that's a rare thing from my point of view) , bad performance overall!
She must do better next match!

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

Halep played the match point with her broken racquet strings

Overall an ugly match, ups and downs, mostly downs. Arruabarrena fought hard, Halep played the important points very well, but she needs to play at a higher level if she wants to reach the semifinals. And yes, very good serving.

(via @livetennis)

9 aces

First set could've been a bit easier but I won't complain about a straight sets win. Definitely has some room for improvement though.

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

A decent performance from Simona today, but she won as a top player was supposed to do in a bad day. She does had a game where she hit 4 Aces from an total of 9.

Arruabarrena had a good clay performance( she has a complete clay game) and, probably if she didn't had to play with a good clay opponent she would pass this round. Good luck further.

Stats match:


Simona Halep. Sorana Cîrstea,Jelena Janković,Samantha Stosur,Victoria Azarenka,Sabine Lisicki,Caroline Wozniacki,Monica Niculescu,Petra Kvitová,Belinda Bencic,Irina-Camelia Begu,Lucie Šafářová,Madison Keys,Donna Vekić,Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova,Angelique Kerber,Elina Svitolina,Agnieszka Radwańska,Venus Williams,Andrea Petkovic,Camila Giorgi,Zarina Diyas,Karolína Plíšková,Carina Witthöft.

Very patchy by Simona but credit to Lara for sticking in after the lightning start by Simona. Please improve for the rest of the tourney, Simona.

2nd game of the 2nd set - 4 points won by Simona to win the game, 4 aces!

Wow!
Quite surprised she can do that.
I mean, 9 aces, it's Serena like, no?
