I agree with everything you said, not just the quote above, BUT...
What I mean is "sheer power". Imagine a light weight boxer fighting a heavy weight boxer. The light weight has all the tricks, knows how to fight (like Simona), nothing wrong with him, BUT... there is the danger of the power of hitting that may knock him out. Just one hard hit from the heavy weight boxer will win the fight for the heavy weight.
Same thing can happen in tennis. Just "brutal force" can be enough in hard courts.
Players with heavier shoots win on hard courts more than on other courts.
Simona doesn't have the power of Vika, Serena, Maria and all these type of players, so maybe her pure tennis may not be enough.
I dont know how she will do. Its interesting now because she improved so much
Maybe she also hits harder now, I hope so. Before the Andrei era she had real problem with hard hitting players, maybe she improved on that also

Re: Simona Halep (România)

There is one problem with Simona! She needs to change to Nike or Adidas. The Lacoste wear is just ugly.
Is she paid for wearing Lacoste? I bet she gets now more money from the bigger two companies. She deserves better.

She said this after R1:

"It was a good match for me," Halep said. "The first round is always difficult. At 3-0 in the first, I was a little nervous and wanted to finish fast because I was waiting a lot today, but I came back and won.

"It's nice to play on clay because I love this surface. I played well on grass, but I feel better on clay."

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I really didn't want to post 3 posts in a row because its not my private thread BUT!......

Simona will be RANKED 26 or higher next Monday !!

Even if she loses today, she still has 1665 points above Kuznetsova in 26 place.
Safarova and Cornet lost and cant catch her. I checked on the TBE list.

Relax, please - if she loses today she will remain on 28'th place with 1635 points.

To be more concrete - If she win she will be #26, same place for semifinal; if she will play the final she will be #23 no matter if she win or not.

So she is losing 30 points from the worst 16en event?
Still learning The TBE list confused me, he didn't take the 30 points out.
Its a healthy excitement. Sports with no excitement is boring
Do you have a list of all her best 16 events last year?

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Thanks that's much better.
She needs to go to Beijing (Sep 28) to change the 5 points there. The other 3 premier events are only in 2014. I am learning the system. "almost there"...

She is in a very good situation.
She doesn't need to defend points in DC, Cinci, and New Haven The way is up

I told you Babos will play Simona
poor Simona will be totally daft after playing these 2 Hungarian girls.
Sharapova is a quiet lamb compared to them.
Babos sounds like she is giving birth every time she hits the ball
