You should have seen her just the best ever from her...rock solid, running down on every ball, never hitting short, great accelerations and drops

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Understandable.

Simona is playing riskier and much more aggressive for a while which naturally means that she will have lower lows, but on the other hand higher peaks as well.
Let's hope she can become consistent on that higher level. She is still very young.

This is what she used to play when she was junior (and won RG) and in her first years at pro level, but Tomai decided to make her play a more safety game. Because of that style she is still called pusher by some stupid posters.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Yeah, Tomai's coaching methods become obvious whenever I see Hanescu.

He is playing like a tennis coach himself, clean, but without any bite or depth. Even at his best days he just lacked this killer shot to pull off some upsets, together with the mental part. He can still win a couple of ATP matches on clay these days, though.

Simona has much more potential to play aggressive despite her physical limitations. Her serve is very good for her height as well. I don't see a reason why she couldn't become a stable Top 40 player.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Finally Simona has a new coach in the person of Andrei Mlendea

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Looks like their Brussels match so far. Watch her throw away the 2nd set now.

Who? Are you sure that is not her boyfriend rather than coach? The guy used to be a tennis player, he may have retired.

He is still a tennis player, currently at number 837 in the ATP rankings, but he is also her coach. Not retired, apparently.

Great second set for Simona. I think she can do it this time, I hope she makes it!

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Radwanska looks so inapt on clay, completely useless.

Haide, Simona!
