She is coming from a wealthy family, she doesn't have the problems to find herself a decent coach...
She could take example from Sorana - there are many young and handsome former ITF tennis players in Romania

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I thing they have been playing for 2 hours - Simona must be bored as hell by LDL moonballs.

True, Cadantu is partly coached by Adrian Cruciat for example.

Thus said, broken when serving for the set at 5-3 30-0.

EDIT: Rebreak to 6-4, final set getting on.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

6-4 Simona in the second set in witch she had the only game won on service. The third set started with a new break from LDL.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

This match must be all kinds of awful.

LiDl won 27% of the points on her 1st serve in the second set, Simona at least 38%.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Couldn't break from 0-40, game over and off to bed.

Tired of this shit, in the truest sense of the word.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Veni vidi vinci maybe next year when she'll have another WC... noooot!

At least she won a set out of respect for Tiriac. Now she can go on and take care of what is really interesting in Madrid. Buying shoes, for instance. LV. I bet she likes them!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Should have given a wildcard to Cadantu.
She knows how to trash LDL.

As for Simona. I thought she was cleverer than Sorana, but she is exactly heading the same way. Sorana, however dug her way out. Now it's up to Simona to show some insight.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

The only player playing up to her ranking.
Beating players ranked below her, getting trashed by players above her.

But to be honest, you can't get many lower ranked players when entering Premier events day in day out as a barely Top 70 player, though.

Hantuchova was lower than her in the rankings before Madrid.
So if they will play Sunday, before the new official rankings are published, Simona should win.

Only MD matches counted.
