Alexandra Dulgheru is still my number one. I love her game and personally.

However, I cheer equally for all of them.

I agree. She would be Romanian #1 as for now, but the way Simona is playing lately, she could have been a huge threat for her in future.

Sorana is on a career high this week, but she is too much up and down and relies on easy points in slams and masters tournaments. She is a Top 30 player, but lacks consistency and mental stability to be more than that.

Beck is a talented player, but still very inconsistent.

On a bad day she is barely an ITF level player, but she has been in good form lately.

However, this is grass and Simona should have the upper hand game wise. I hope she can compete well after the long week.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Does she have an official page? Twitter or Facebook?

I found https://www.facebook.com/SimonaHalepOfficial (which is a fan page that seems to be updated) and the other one, Simona Halep which I don't believe it's her. I also found a twitter account that acts like her (Simona__Halep) but was made in May, exactly when she won against Jankovic.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Should've been easier, but I guess she's still tired.
Vinci or Kanepi next. Tough match, either way

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Didn't think she'd win on grass today right after winning a clay tournament. Well done! Would like to see her playing against Kaia

Re: Simona Halep (România)

The good thing is that she gets one day of rest between now and her 2nd round match.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Probably tanked the 2nd set again.

Anyway, she needs some practice on the grass.

Well done!

Maybe it's tired, but I think if she wants to be the top player must to fight tiredness.

Sara Errani is about the same physically as Simona, she made ​​two finals last year at RG, and this year almost did the same.

I'm sure Sarah was tired, but when you get victory after victory, you have to know how to profit in mental terms from them... and Sara knows. .

I'm no expert in tennis, but in sports, just as in life to succeed, apart from the qualities: talent, intelligence, etc..., more important is the character .. an iron will, work, and plenty of ambition. And the best e.g. is Sharapova. Good luck Simona.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Vinci is the next opponent for Simona. I don't know what to say about that match-up on grass. Vinci has more experience and her sliced BH could be very hard to handle given the low bounce on grass. Also, I don't know if Simona has the desire to force herself once again.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I wouldn't mind Simona losing here in view of Wimbledon. Roberta is the better player of the two on faster surfaces, anyway.
