Re: Simona Halep (România)

Cincinnati. Her section:

[1] S.Williams vs BYE
Q vs Q
Barthel vs Safarova
Q vs [16] Kirilenko
[11] Stosur vs Kuznetsova
Pavyluchenkova vs Hampton
Halep vs Hsieh
[8] Bartoli vs BYE

Tough draw. Will probably beat Su-Wei, but Marion awaits.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Su-Wei has been terrible this season, Simona should win in straight sets. Bartoli (if recovered after Toronto) should be a real challenge. Go Simona!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Great first match to get her back into a competing mode.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Not a bad draw. There were much more tricky opponents in the first round.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Hsieh is by far the worst player who got a direct entry into this tournament.

And I can see Bartoli being a very good match-up for her as well, especially as she had to retire this week.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Do you guys expect the new improved Simona to be pretty good on HC too?

Cheating on Arantxa Rus with fellow Romanian? Surprised, but in a nice way. Way to go, girls!

That is good news. It makes cheering for each of them even better.

I personally do. Her new style of play suits better fast surfaces. We all know now that her agresive style comes from timing extraordinary well the ball and clean hitting. She plays much better when inside the baseline altough maybe she feels more comfortable behinde the baseline (just because that's how her tennis has evolved).
