Re: Simona Halep (România)

Well, on the other hand one can say that this could have been her final...

Or even more...

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Sharapova - Halep 7-5 7-5.
The match started in a scary way and I was afraid of some humiliation. Then Simona recovered nicely and put some pressure on Sharapova.
This is the kind of match where the longer it lasts the better for the lower ranked player. Hope it gives confidence to Simona.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

But it's pitiful that she can't hold the second set. At the beginning, it really makes me worry about her. Never expect this result she got.

Victoria Azarenka Maria Kirilenko Petra Kvitová Angelique Kerber Simona Halep

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Poor quality match, but mostly because of Sharapova.

Simona did what she was supposed to do, keeping the ball in play as long as possible and let her opponent move. Of course, her serve doesn't allow her free points or any dictation of play. She lacks the weapons to keep up with the big hitters and the speed to fully rely on her defense.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Sharapova scored both her points and Simona's as well. She plays pretty bad now , now wonder Serena bagels her with ease.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I just saw part of the match, but I think simona's serve was really good, someone very angle, another ones close to the line. But of ourse with only 3 winners she can not beat this top players.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Kerber took 0 games from Sharapova today in QF.
So Simona performance was more than honorable.

Maria played a million times better against Angie tho.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

WTA Linz, Main Draw:

(1)Azarenka - Rus
Halep - Qualifier
Martic - Cîrstea
(wc)Mayr-Achleitner - Lisicki

Nice draw and a great R2 waiting for her!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

She's lucky this time. Qualifier in the first and there's a good chance Azarenka will withdraw from Linz, I think.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Why do you say Azarenka will withdraw?. Why is she here if she is going to withdraw?. Would be a great news for her expectations.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

R1 against Q Tsurenko.

Easiest qualifier in my opinion.
