Re: Simona Halep (România)

How, in the name of tennis god, Simona lost a game in this first set?

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simona was obviously irritated by playing someone ranked that low. She wanted to play a perfect match by going for every return and for the fast winner, but she missed some here and there. It was apart from 2 or 3 rallies the only way for Bukta to win points or games.

She is really enjoying a cakewalk draw with Babos next, so no Top 100 player for a spot in the SF.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Nice game , she played very good in my opinion , excepting the few UE. After the next match , i hope Simona will be named "Hungarian Killer" .

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Another meeting with a Hungarian . The good thing is that she is mentally strong. That crowd doesn't know what fair play is, that's for sure!

There is no degree of separation. No kind of hesitation. There’s no division keeping us apart. We are going the same direction in this universe on the move.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

After those RG and Wimby draws she was due a cakewalk...anyway if she wins this she really needs to start concentrating on big events with some internationals here and there...

I told you!
It will be a harder game. I do not join the people thinking it will be so easy. Babos is big, hits big, serves big. It wont be that easy imo, and the rankings are deceiving in this match. Babos will not be a push over, I hope she will be easy for Simo but I don't expect an easy game.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

It's so comforting having Simona to lean on almost every week now, of all the Romanians. The problem is that her matches are too short now and come and go like the wind

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simona will beat Timi I think, but it won't be that easy indeed.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

With Simona's success as of lately some of the things I enjoy the most are the players' statements before a match against her.
This one is from Babos today
"I'm happy to have a day off, with only doubles tomorrow," Babos said. "The last two matches were ridiculously long and were really hard fights. I think if I play well it could be an interesting match. But obviously Simona is a great player and has had some unbelievable results in the last couple of months. I think I have nothing to lose. I will try to enjoy it and play my best."
