Re: Simona Halep (România)

Indeed, they changed it on her profile now.

Wonderful, another Romanian tennis player with a messy coaching situation. How can we expect them to not be messy on the court as well...

Simona's game really needs an upgrade, though. But not necessarily game or tactic wise, but fitness and power wise. She has to be much fitter for the game style that suits her best and that is guaranteeing her most success.

I saw her match against Stephens. The scoreline was devastating, but a bit misleading as well. Her main problem is that she didn't really know what to do. When she attacked, she couldn't hit through her what led to an eventual error or her getting out manouvred. When she defended she became short and was just too slow in general to handle the power game for more than 3 shots.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Her losses to Stephens don't look so bad now.

Called it.

It was the by far best match I've seen from a player ranked outside Top 20 for a long time. I really can't blame Simona for anything that day, which isn't happening often.

She has to focus mainly on her own game now and get a good coach.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I'm pretty sure Tomai is retiring from the tennis business when Victor says goodbye to the Tour. This probably also played a role in her decision.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

So my suspicion was right. She is coach-less.
Simona is the type of player that needs a game plan vs different opponents. Especially at this stage of her development.
Also I don't know why Tomai would retire from tennis.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

It's just a feeling I have.

The only question which is left and which really bothers me is as if their break-up was a result of both realizing that it would be better like that or if there was some serious argument beforehand.

We won't know, but I hope she will find another coach soon.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

WTA Paris-Bercy, Main Draw:

Roberta Vinci vs Simona Halep
Mona Barthel vs Urszula Radwanska
Christina Mchale vs Pauline Parmentier
Marion Bartoli vs BYE

Roberta hasn't really been in form so far this year, but it's probably still enough for Simona on fast indoor courts. Her only hope is that Vinci is still in party mood or jetlagged after her triumph in Australia.
They already played each other last year in R1 and Vinci won in straight sets.

Pity, it's the weakest draw Paris is having for ages.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I won´t say anything, we can expect the worse and the best from Simona.
