That's life. Think of the Maria, Vika, Wozi fans. They are going crazy now

Re: Simona Halep (România)

The week after Budapest she can choose between events in Bastad Sweden or Bad Gastein Austria, both on clay.
If she wins just one event its the same as winning the two events!
That's because there is a big gap between 22 and 21 in the rankings.
Or, two semi finals are the same as one event win (260 or 280 points).

In short, one event win or two SFs will put her around 22 in the world !
It will not be easy. Good players will be there.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

She entered Bastad, though.

If she is going far in Budapest, I'm pretty sure she will pull out of the next claycourt tournament.

US Open is coming closer and this is where the very big points are played.

I guess that what you really want is to see her becoming a big name in the US Open and getting the media attention.
Until then she needs to get as many points as she can from small and medium events. That's how Sorana got to rank 22. Sorana done nothing in the grand slams but she has a good career.
So if I would be Simona, then I would try and get as many points as I can from everywhere, even small events.
She is good on clay so she has a better chance there than on hard courts, OR I may be wrong and she will be good also on hard courts, just like on clay and grass
She may have tough matches on hard courts so why not do the safe thing, and take points on clay?
The hard courts season is long and she can play now in any event with her 30 rankings.
She will have time to play a lot of hard courts now, so maybe one more clay for better rankings is a good idea.

I guess that Bastad is the weaker event but I am not sure. Its a good move if she wants the points. She "plays it safe" and builds her career. I think she is doing the correct thing.

Simona needs to be careful not to play too much. Its only half a season and the hard courts season will be long and hard.
Curcubeu is correct, maybe she should rest before going to USA, I don't know.
She needs to be careful and not take it too hard, she needs to check how she plays now and not go crazy.
Take it easy Simona, no pressure

I guess she will retire. She needs to regroup. She thought Sweden will be like a tourists visit but now she is worried. I saw her interview after the game and she said she needs to think about what happened.
Imagine if Simona beats her !!!

That is a standard statement after a loss.

I'm almost sure Serena will play.

As for Simona beating Serena, this is all I want from her since 2011 Wimbledon. And one day she will beat the crap out of that arrogant self-sufficient biatch.

Special Ranking (sometimes you'll find PR, Protected Ranking), meaning that Alexandra will enter Bastad MD using her ranking before her injury last year in Indian Wells. 57 that is.

She'll play Palermo first, using her own ranking

Serena said she has to think about HER LIFE when she finished the interview! I saw it, she was shocked. That's why I am afraid she will return to USA and not to Sweden.

Thanks for explaining the SR. I knew there is a protected ranking but I didn't connected it with the letters SR.
Good luck to Dulgheru! I like how she plays, aggressive player. I saw her great tournament win in Poland 2-3 years ago on tv.

Re: Simona Halep (România)
