Re: Simona Halep (România)

First (and only) point for Carla on her serve in this third set in the 7th (and last) game

Amazing comeback! Well done, Simona!

Hope you'll meet Makarova next

Re: Simona Halep (România)

1st ace is a 2nd serve ace to go 5-1 you gotta love her

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

This win is probably the tastiest from the last 2 weeks. Well done Simo
Payback time for that loss at RG when she was a set and a break up in the second and lost to Carla.She must feel amazing after this one. I would love to know what actually happened there. Did Carla choked, or Simo changed gears realising she has noting to lose.
So happy for wins like this, which highlight Simo's GOAT behaviour these days.

The latter one

Simona just said in her post match press conference:"It was a very difficult match for me because she is playing so tough," said Halep. "This time I was more confident, but I started very slow because it was so hot and I didn't feel good. But I changed my tactic to come back by being more aggressive and finishing the point faster."

And she will face Makarova tomorrow. Quite happy about that because I don't like her chances against Errani.
