Re: Simona Halep (România)

With all respect to all the good and funny posts about this game,
mine is the post of the day. I will show off a bit, sorry

That's what I said at 6-6, before the tie break started in the live commentary thread:

I was wrong by one game. A breadstick, not a bagel.
Why did I said that? because she was too nervous to win the TB and I knew she will push herself to raise her level and destroy that pusher

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Congratulations to Simona , she won 3 WTA titles in 5 weeks , i hope she will continue with the good results.

Unfortunately , i was nervous because of the 2nd set tiebreak and i didn't watch the 3rd , only the match point she won because i watched livescore android app on the phone. I doubt she will get far (if she will play) in Bastad. I saw a very tired Simona in this final , i felt tired myself watching at her . I'm glad she finally won and i hope the best for the hard court season , a Top 20 finish at the end of the year would be really nice .

The gaps between players in the top 20 are big. You need to get a lot of points to jump inside the top 20 places. She is 23 its great compared to 2 months ago when she was 64!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

In the interview during the ceremony she said that she needs to work now on how to play better. that's her words, I heard her saying that when she got the award.
She is aware that she needs to improve.
Imo, its just a mental fatigue but its hard to fix that.
Her brain works the same for last 3 months... its tiring. She is not a machine.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

That term "vulture" used on TF, I don't mind it at all! is it better to lose 3 finals in a row?!
She should take what she can get. Nothing wrong with that.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I noticed she changed her color to red for the Final, same color as Tiger Woods on the last day of the tournament

Absolutely. It's sports, she has to kick butt as much as she can.

There are a lot of "kids" in this forum and they can get lost sometimes with wrong thoughts.
A local mentality thing.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

The amazing dream continues!

I didn't see the match but I read here that most of you are unhappy with her performance today. OMG, it's her 18th match in 5 weeks, her 3td final in this period of time - what were you really expected? I think that she is more mentally tired than physically. So, the most important issue of this match is the fact that she didn't fall apart after losing those 3 MP in the second set (as she used to do one year ago and what usually happened in WTA with most of the girls) but she passed over that and won the decisive set easily. This is what a great player does and (I repeat myself) is the main earn of this day. Simona proved herself and us that she is a champion.

Please my friend, I really understand your enthusiasm, but try to calm yourself down and not reply to every single post concerning Simona. Trust me, many of them don't deserved attention and you risk to create many hater to you and Simona It's just an advice for an elder man.

Agreed. Si Si: Try not responding to any comment about Simona, let people have their own thoughts, only if you think an answer is necessary respond. Otherwise try to not look that fanatic because they take it as an arrogance and as superiority. Because of this hype there are many haters coming from the blue so we better stick on our job, supporting Simona calm and not writing thousand of posts one after the other in the same thread about the same thing. Let's get back on our feet.

One question: what MM stands for? I know it refers to small tournaments, but what does it mean?

Bak skyene er himmelen alltid blĺ.

"You ever feel like when you met someone, they fill this hole inside of you,
And then when they are gone you feel that space painfully vacant?"
