she looks dangerous but she lost too many games this season. she is not 43 for no reason. she was much lower few months ago. maybe she is doing a comeback, I don't really know

oh, I thought more and now I know why I feel good about beating her.
Simona plays a smarter game than her with more variety. That's why I am relaxed! Hantuchova is fast and hits hard but Simona has a better all around game.
But.. what Simona?! she will be so tired... she will be after 12 wins in a row !!!
just give me one R1 win, its enough for me Simona is human

Exactly. That's the kind of player who can be dangerous when you don't expect it. She may as well beat herself, but if her groundstrokes hit the lines on a constant basis, then Simona would have a lot to work to earn her victory. Well, Dani would probably beat herself, but still.

Meanwhile, a not-in-form Na Li struggles when playing against steady players. I can't forget that 4 winners - 41 unforced errors match from last year, and on the other side wasn't even a steady player

So it comes down to form, really, and Dani looks more like being in form than Li.

Dani is constantly fading starting ~2011, but it doesn't mean the potential is not there anymore.

no problems, I agree more or less, but she has underachieved in her career. she could do better and it effects her brain, she knows she could do more in the past. She feels bad about it, just like simona was until 2 weeks ago. it effects the brain if you lost too much in the past.

Agree. I dislike some players but I don't hate anyone. Hate is a strong word.

Congratulations for your daughter picking up tennis! If she becomes a pro, will she be representing Romania or the United States?
Thank you. Ha, ha, that would be her choice to make She would need Romanian citizenship to even be in that position but before that we'll have to see if tennis is even her greatest talent to justify becoming a profession.

Anyway, sorry for the personal story distraction from the topic.
Back to Simona, as someone anticipated, being in the same half of the Wimbledon draw as Serena meant that she would be scheduled to play her 1st round game on Tuesday. This is great, for obviuous reasons.

I get his wikipedia page at the top and a bunch of news articles. And it's "Mlendea" not "Mlandea" maybe that's why you see your posts.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Or maybe google search results differ from country to country if you are not in Romania.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

A question please about behavior on the forum with the GM section:
Can I talk about games results while they are LIVE? I am not sure so I ask.
In example: the Puig v Errani game is interesting...
