Re: » Simona's News/Articles/Interviews « - volume 2

From a post-match interview with WTA Insider:

On playing Pliskova: Actually, I knew that it's going to be tough because I don't get rhythm from her. You never know what to expect for the next point. So it's a bit of tension. But I knew these things. I just had to stay patient for every ball and to keep fighting because I knew that if I stay there for every ball, she can miss more than me.

On what she's pleased with so far this week: Actually, I think with the serve because I am improving a lot. Now I already got the rhythm a little bit, the timing. I don't serve very strong, but it's better that I can put the first serve more into the court. My percentage is higher than normally. I move well. I feel good. I can run a lot. So, yeah, everything is going in the right way now - finally.

Q. A fan wants to know a funny story you've had with Darren.
SIMONA HALEP: Funny story? You know I'm boring, so... Can I think and I'll tell you tomorrow? I'm coming anyway.

Q. Talking about the serve. Have you and Darren made technical changes to your serve?
SIMONA HALEP: I'm not telling you this. It's a secret (smiling).

Q. Mentally are you just approaching your serve differently?
SIMONA HALEP: Mentally, yes. I changed something just before this tournament. It's not easy because I need time to get used to it. I serve pretty well these days, also in doubles. Actually doubles helped me a lot in this tournament. Yeah, I'm just trying to believe more in my serve now.

Re: » Simona's News/Articles/Interviews « - volume 2

Serve serve serve.. so she got no.2 in the world with no serve then..
Her real problem is getting stressed and tight in big matches, its not her serve. I hope she respects her problem and works on it.
Today may get tricky vs Sveta because its QF and the stress monster may rise its ugly head again.
See?.. I can make a negative post just like gewa76. My cup is only 90% full, its not the whole 100%

Re: » Simona's News/Articles/Interviews « - volume 2

lol, don't be naive, these are just tabloids spreading fake bombshells...

All those "journals" were going after an allegation of Halep's granny (her father's mom) who said she thinks Simona will marry somebody from her ethnic group.
It's an old tradition in their families to marry someone having the same ethnicity... still lately this is no more respected 100%.
Don't know (and really don't care) if Simona is that traditionalist but I remember she said once or twice she will look to rise a family around the end of her career (most likely in her early 30's) so it's hardly unlikely for Halep to get married in the next few years.

OTOH her granny never stated Simona is going to marry this year; it's just a few cheap tabloids who invented this "breaking news" in order to sell their papers or to get a lot of clicks on their sites. They produce such fake gossips almost every day with all kind of public persons...
