Re: Simona Halep (România)

That is the main problem with Halep, her damn schedule. Na Li and Flipkens played ITF tournaments like crazy until they made it big. I'm pretty sure Na Li would still play ITF today if only WTA would allow it. But Simona is too proud for that. Too proud for Internationals even. Go big or go home. And she usually goes home Grand Slam record since 2012 (as a top 50 player all this time): 1 win - 5 loses. Shocking!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Should send Tiriac some flowers for that R1 draw.

I can remember her playing out of her mind against Serena at Wimbledon a couple of years ago, really never came back to that level since.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Well, she went out in the first round last year, so one win will be an improvement! At least she got a beatable opponent.

If she does win, then is ousted by Serena, it will be the second consecutive year she was ousted by a Williams sister in Madrid.

Tiriac gave a MDWC to Marius Copil also.
So Halep, Dulgheru and Copil were given some help.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

How is it possible to only win 2 games in a set that lasted over an hour?

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I thought he was talking about Lolno.

Girl can be happy to still be inside Top 100 after Brussels.

She'll be out of top 100 in just a few months, no worries.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I really wonder what she is thinking anyway.

OK, Tomai maybe didn't help her that much and she obviously wants to play more aggressive, no problem, but changing your whole game and game plan without a coach, how should that work out?

She is coming from a wealthy family, she doesn't have the problems to find herself a decent coach...
