What a defeatist attitude! At least pretend you give a damn.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simona made an excellent tour, I do not expect more. I understand the excitement with her victories , but some comment makes me laugh.
She lost because his head was elsewhere, she lost bcz his opponent yelled too loud and Simona intimidated, lost, because SW, put cream on her hands and delayed 10 seconds and Simona deconcentrated ... etc .

I remember about her victory at Roma vs JJ. A Serbian about JJ lost, referring to the crucial points in the deciding set: She had something in her eyes and felt very uncomfortable.

you are right, she lost because Serena is the best player out there and Simona is not even close, not yet.
All those "reasons" are kind of excuses for her level below the standard I guess

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I never said she lost because SW put hand cream on her

I only said that you don't do that in the middle of a game. In the middle of a game you can only go to your bench:

a. if your racket gets broken during a rally and
b. if you're asking for MTO.

That's all I said. But of course rules do not apply for SW

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I exaggerated cream I see no problem with SW behavior, all champions afford things that the ordinary mortals can not afford, it's just a bonus for champions. Nadal removes his panties from ass , arranges his hair, shirt lift, bouncing the ball 20 times...etc. all in 25 seconds? As for SW scream ? OK she scream, but only when winning important points, and never on the opponent's mistakes..in romaneste..cum obisnuiesc sa faca creauturile alea pitice pomenika si rusoaica psycho putanseva .

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I copy this from GM.
Serena played incredible that 1st set and Simona started very bad.
At least that 2nd set was more competitive.
The ES commentators were so negative towards her last night.
Looking for records of the shortest match and blah blah blah.

Maybe Simona was scared (not a good sign for her future), maybe just tired or just a bad day and could not do anything against Serena's strong shots.

Yes.It has to be said though that Serena served so good, 1st set very much above the 1st set vs Sorana in Toronto. Why ?

I am puzzled about this too. The big scene and the nr 1 player against her. Nothing to lose.
She did play better in the 2nd and looked like she cared.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

^ That's very interesting cause Cadantu started to play good after Simona's great results this year. She said in an interview that she is motivated by her performances. And now, after Simona gets bageled, she loses the same way ) Just a coincidence...I guess

Retired...

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simo picked up where she left off in Cincy against Sam...that Serena match was an one off
