Re: Simona Halep (România)

I don´t think she needs to improve her fitness, it is not all about improving her fitness, the other day she played a 3 hours match. I think she is fit enough. Maybe now she has to improve her arm and her accurate in some hits, like someone in the match against Petrova where she make some mistakes trying to hit near the lines with almost all the court for her and she failed or she do not pass the net, or some games where she make the points too longs innecesarily and finally she failed, she trys to play in hard courts like she plays in clay courts. She is injured too many times this year because she focus her game in fitness and run ad run and chase the ball.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

But the defensive assets are actually the ones that brought her those results and it will be the strength she needs to rely on in the future.

She simply must become fitter and stronger for the demanding, defensive based game she wants and needs to play against most opponents. Period.

She will never be the biggest hitter or volleyer, her height is already a big hurdle for that, although beefing up some of her shots won't do her damage.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I think she plays a defensive stile in part because she doesnt feel confident with her accurate that´s why I say what I am saying. Anybody knows if was she injured today?.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

She had her knees taped against Petrova already.

Still, she is injured 6 months a year, far too much.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Her forehand is not very accurate as you said before. Open field and she hits out.
The 2nd and 3rd set vs Cibulkova at Brussells were the best I have seen from her this year.
She was really hitting winners that time.

Btw
If you are not too upset after Simona's recent performance you can vote her with some points.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Awful loss to Vesna, Simo

I hope she really makes a strong start at the AO next year...thankfully she has nothing major to defend at the slams this year, so she should capitalize on that!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I wonder if she'll get a good draw at the AO this year....mind you, she had a great one last year and ended up losing to a qualifier.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simon had an up-and-down year in 2012, but it was still her best year yet on tour, ending it in the Top 50.

2012 47
2011 53

The question is-- what is her greatest potential?

Here is her Auckland draw:

(1)Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) v Kristina Mladenovic (FRA)
Simona Halep (ROU) v Arantxa Rus (NED)
(wc)Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) v Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP) v (6)Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ)

Her opening round is doable, as she's never lost a set to Arantxa in the three times they've played as pros. She has no points to defend this week, so one win would be good.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

She is very good freinds with Arantxa. They know themselves back from the juniors and yes, Rus is the perfect match-up for Simona to start this year.

R2 yeah...
