Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I hope she keeps up the momentum and wins the first match. Step by step. Hopefully she will win the whole thing. We'll see.

Retired...

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Even pre-Roma Simona should sleepwalk to the semifinals at least.

It's her tournament to win unless Safarova is randomly peaking that week, but it's a post Wimby clay MM and they never fail to deliver...

The pre-Roma Simona would have lost to Babos and the crowd in the QF. Her nerves would not let her show her potential.
It will not be easy even now. People are too confident, she will have a natural decline in her level of play. Its hard to be at your best all the time. She is just human. I am surprised to see how many are sure that she will win it. Havent Wimbeldon 13 tought us something?
Nothing is sure in women tennis.

Simona haven't lost a match against a lower ranked player this year, no matter how her form was.

She could not win any pressure game against a good player before Andrei started to coach her. Maybe Babos is not that good but that's what I meant.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Now I am scared
22 of the 33 who tried to guess the results in the tournament thread voted Halep as the event winner. What a jinx.
No other player comes close, Cornet is second with maybe 6-7 votes.
Everyone expects her to win, no pressure
Thank god that Serena is in the next event to take the pressure of her

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I don't think Babos will reach the QF anyway, she's not good on clay. I'd put my money on Torro-Flor or even Krunic.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

^ Indeed, I think Krunic will take out Babos, and it will be a Torro-Flor-Halep QF.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

New high for Simona and the first time she is in top 30 - Nr 30 WTA. Next Monday she will be at least nr 29 and for the first time she will be the highest ranked Romanian player.

I just came to this thread to say that Simona is now the top ranked Romanian girl and you stole the news from me
Sorana fell from 26 to 32 (next Monday) because she does not play this week.
Robson fell even worse from 27 to 34 just because she does not play.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

wow, Simona can not beat this jinx!
In the FITD game on this forum, 48 people took Simona to win the event and only 27 took all the other players combined !
Cornet got 17 votes. Safarova got only 7 votes even if she is ranked above Simona !
What a jinx.

Amazing how much she is appreciated now by all tennis fans not just Romanians.
Everyone is afraid of Simo now ! what 3 months can do...
