It appears so, even though people get second chances all the time for a lot more serious acts.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I have a question about the Cincinnati event 8 days from now. This event has the same quality as the USO with all the best players in it. Simona is ranked on the official event site as 32, that was her rank on 1st of July. Will she be ranked 32 or 23 her current ranking?
It can effect the draw, no? Its a 54 players event, so as ranked 32 she will not be ranked and will be playing a top class player in R1. If she is 23 then she gets a lower ranked player in R1.
Is that correct? Will she be ranked in the top half there or not?
All the best players will be there. Very tough event. She can get a top 10 player in R1!

She will be ranked 23, but it doesn';t matter because there are only 16 seeded players on this tournament

1) Does it mean she may play a top 10 in R1?
2) What the hell does a "54 singles" event means? Whats the system?

top-8 will have a BYE in the first round. That means she may play maximum against N9 in the first match

That answers both questions. Thanks.
It looks harder than the USO because there are no lucky draws against a low rank. All players earned their places. The qualifiers are better than an average International level WTA event.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

The first link is an ad to an interview that will appear only in the printed edition of the newspaper.

The second link is to an article consisting of an interview with her coach. In the title he is quoted as saying that Simona's service and backhand may bring her into the top 20 WTA.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Ok, in the interview her coach says that Simona is now healthy, is OK physically and she took care of her back problems. He said that she resumed training on July 25th (the day before the interview) and she will keep training till August 7th. After that she will travel to US where she will play in Cincy, New Haven and then at US Open.
The rest is stuff that's been already discussed around here.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Her BH is easily top 10 level if not top 5.

Relax he has a new account and it's here now it's just a little bit quietly.

Cool but it was his enthusiasm that set him apart so I still miss that aspect.
