Re: Simona Halep (România)

They were seeded, Simona wasn't.

That's why I hope her to at least reach Top 24 before the US Open. Anything can happen, then. It's a huge advantage after all, but it seems that she is secured a lower seed at least for now.

I can actually only see a hand full of players that can trouble Simona on clay with her Rome/Nurnberg form and one of those is certainly CSN. However, Simona will have more time to prepare for this event and post Wimby clay MMs never turn out the way you would expect. Just expect anything, guys.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simona returned today home. Here are some thoughts after this great last few weeks.
http://www.mediafax.ro/sport/simona-...roasa-11043233

If a better English skilled poster (and patient) likes to translate this it would be nice.
Traveling by train and fishing are mentioned too.


Jucătoarea de tenis Simona Halep a declarat, vineri, pe Aeroportul Henri Coandă, că nu este supărată pentru eliminarea din turul doi de la Wimbledon, ci chiar este bucuroasă, pentru cele două turnee câştigate, la Nurnberg şi 's-Hertogenbosch.

"A fost o perioadă foarte bună pentru mine, foarte frumoasă, am jucat foarte bine, am bătut jucătoare foarte bine clasate. La Wimbledon a fost dificil pentru că am avut o adversară foarte grea în turul doi, m-au luat un pic şi durerile de spate şi s-a terminat, dar nu sunt supărată, ci chiar sunt bucuroasă. M-am adaptat de la meci la meci mai bine, a fost dificil pentru că am şi călătorit cu trenul vreo opt ore, dar ce să zic aşa a fost să fie şi a fost superb. Iarba nu era suprafaţa mea preferată, dar acum am început să joc bine şi pe iarbă şi chiar merge bine pe toate suprafeţele când te simţi bine", a spus Halep, informează Dolce Sport.

Simona Halep, care a sosit în ţară alături de Alexandra Cadanţu, jucătoare eliminată şi ea în turul secund la Wimbledon, consideră că nu a avut noroc la tragerea la sorţi. "Mi-aş fi dorit mai mult, dar nu am avut parte de un tablou foarte uşor, şi în primul tur a jucat foarte bine Olga Govorţova şi în runda a doua am jucat şi mai bine Li Na, e o adevarată campionă, dar nu sunt suparată", a mai spus Halep.

Simona Halep a precizat că a avut nevoie de intervenţia fizioterapeutului din cauza oboselii acumulate în ultima perioadă. "După pauza de masaj mi-a intrat totul, m-am relaxat un pic, m-am relaxat şi am intrat la nu am ce pierde şi mingea s-a dus foarte bine. Cât de cât a fost greu să joc cu aceste dureri de spate, dar nu a fost să zic lucrul principal pentru care am pierdut acel meci. Ea a jucat foarte bine şi oboseala mea a ajuns la un prag foarte înalt", a subliniat Halep, care a precizat că în următoarea perioadă se va duce la pescuit pentru a se relaxa.

Simona Halep a afirmat că nu a avut probleme cu suprafaţa de joc de la Wimbledon. "Eu nu am avut probleme, nu am alunecat deloc, problemele mele cu spatele au fost de la oboseală pentru că am jucat multe meciuri la rând. Terenul mi s-a părut bun şi chiar m-am simţit bine acolo", a completat Halep.

Ea a menţionat că nu a mai înregistrat 11 victorii consecutive de când era junioară. "De la juniori nu am am avut atâtea victorii consecutive, două turnee câştigate. E foarte bine să zic aşa, mi-am demonstrat singură că pot juca la un nivel înalt şi am încredere acum că pot ajunge mai sus", a adăugat Halep.

Întrebată cum s-a simţit când a primit primul trofeu din carieră, la Nurnberg, Halep a răspuns: "A fost un moment deosebit, mi-am reamintit de finala de la Roland Garros (n.r. - la juniori, câştigată în faţa Elenei Bogdan), a fost un moment deosebit pentru că am fost foarte emotivă, am avut emoţii mari atunci când a trebuit să vorbesc pe teren, dar astea sunt emoţii normale".

Halep consideră că este o jucătoare destul de completă. "Mă simt destul de completă, adică am un joc destul de solid şi complet, dar mai am de muncit şi mai este drum lung până să ajung acolo unde îmi doresc. În următorul clasament cred că voi urca până pe 27-28 şi sper să urc şi mai mult", a conchis Halep.

Simona Halep, locul 32 WTA, a fost învinsă, joi, cu scorul de 6-2, 1-6, 6-0, de sportiva chineză Na Li, locul 6 WTA, în turul doi al turneului de la Wimbledon, după un meci care a durat o oră şi 25 de minute.

Halep a mers la Londra după ce a câştigat zece partide la rând, în două săptămâni, care i-au adus două trofee în palmares, la Nurnberg şi 's-Hertogenbosch.

Ea a păşit cu dreptul şi pe iarba de la All England Club, calificându-se în turul secund. Însă Halep nu a put trece de Na Li, punând capăt unei serii impresionate de victorii consecutive, 11.

La Wimbledon, jucătoarea română va primi la simplu un premiu în valoare de 38.000 de lire sterline (aproximativ 44.500 de euro).

Accidents can happen , remember that Romanian players are the most inconstant players in the tour . But that's just a warning.
but... I knew all that! The idea is to keep the momentum going and we said the same thing after Nurnberg. No one expected her to win in Holland on grass and she did.
She shows so much potential at the moment that I trust her very much not to fail.
Even a QF is not a failure. She doesn't really need to win the title, just few good games, and she is ranked high there, so she has an easier draw now.
just saying... I believe

p.s. - Sorana got to 22 with NO titles, just few rounds in every event is good. It gets easier with high ranking because you play worse player which are not ranked, its easier for Simona now.

Believe me, I am not the type that gets excited for no good reason

But I guess that's the way it is.
Bad draw again! CSN on clay was Simona's worst enemy!
In the end it made Simona a better player that fights harder
She does not need the grand slams! Ask Wozniacki! Wozi was no.1 with no grand slams!
Its all good, we just live the moment so we get angry, but we need to see the big picture like Raddu tells me, and I do it already before he said that...

You know what you are talking about sir
especially when this time you say the same things as me, more or less

RANKINGS are very important because they give you a weaker player in the draw, and not a Li NA in second round.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I will translate the good parts from the interview:
http://www.mediafax.ro/sport/simona-...roasa-11043233
----------------------------------------------------
After she landed at the airport in Romania she said this:

"I am happy its finished, not angry. I won two titles.
It was a very good and very nice period. I played very well.
I did not have luck in the draw.
The back pains in the game were not the big problem. I was just too tired at the time that Li played very well.
Now, I will go fishing...
I did not have problems with the grass. My back hurt because I played too many games.
I showed myself that I can play at high level and I believe I can get higher.
When I got my first trophy it was a special moment.
I see myself as an almost complete player, but I still have a long way to go until I get where I want to be!
In next rankings I will be 27-28 and I hope to get even higher."
-------------------------------------------
END
She gets 38k pounds for her Wimbeldon games.

I said the same things without the interview

I TOLD YOU that playing doubles is too much and she talks about too many games...

Add more names

I think 'Super Simona' is not too crazy but still has a punch
Considering that it has no physical feared, perhaps something related to feelings, something to do with desire, will, heart .. etc. Heading should really have just two words ?...OK Simo (Dacian:glumesc) Braveheart...loocks like fits with her ​​personality and physique. Instead of its name or after, you can also use .. lill giant, born fearless, etc.. Terms of tennis, mixed with movie titles, history .. etc. Find 3 to 4 titles and put them to the vote... Good luck.

I am not doing it, I am not living in Romania. The local fans should do it.
They know and feel the names better than me. but first I am not sure we will get a forum.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

How much money did Simona get from the doubles game? I guess it was worth it because of the money
She may have bought a nice little car from that match.

Re: Simona Halep (România)
