Romanian WTA tennis just doesn't make any sense.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Simona.

Watched form the middle of the 1st set.
Like others have said this is unbelievable.
In my opinion, this win over Vinci is more important than against Aga.
If Simona can maintain this level she will be a real threat for the top players on clay.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

If she goes deep in Rome I hope she skips Belgium, despite the points she has to defend. I'd like to see a rested Simona at RG.

There's no point in her skipping Brussels, even if she makes semis here. She can use more wins before RG. Besides, in Paris she will play one day and have the next day off, so plenty of time for her to rest.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I don't think it's necessary for her to skip Brussels. If she is exhausted, she will likely lose in R1 anyway, if not she can at least reach QF, get some points under her belt and still have some days off before Paris.

Of course I would love to see her doing very well in Paris, but after all I would already be happy see her winning one match (=100 additional points to her ranking) and there are so many walking byes in the main draw that this is easily possible for her only playing at 50%

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Definitely no point in skippig Brussels. She has her final points to defend.

And then what if she draws Serena Williams in the first round of the French Open? A living dog is better than a dead lion.

I think she should play Brussels and see there how tired she gets ..i mean, she's not getting to the seminal at FO, so if she feels fresh she can get to QF-SF and then play relaxed (not really tanking)

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Good point, I agree although I remember from previous years what typically happened at RG with the players that did very well in the immediately preceding tournaments. They got eliminated early.

Thanks for posting this. I couldn't see the match (too early for me).

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Wow, Simona's really taken advantage of a dream draw for her. If she keeps up this form, she definitely has the ability to beat JJ!
