Re: Simona Halep (România)

I am starting to get annoyed, I mean really annoyed by people attacking Simona for getting slammed by Serena. Common people, really? Now I can't wait for the day when Simona finally takes Serena down. For me it's now almost like I when I couldn't wait until my Colts finally managed to beat the Patriots in the playoffs.

After watching the New Haven Final I keep thinking what could happen if Simona absorbs Serena's power for a few sets at the beginning of the match like she did with Kvitova.

That's because Simona played some amazing matches this year, got some fantastic results and they didn't watch that matches. So when Serena against Halep started they got in front of their TVs and Simona didn't play as usual, she was a little bit scared and they made their own opinion based on her performance against Serena. These fans are nothing, the commentator during that match was confused about the fact that she won so many matches this year and he sees nothing about her.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Thanks so much for the avatars Sasja!

My dad couldn't believe how good she was....he's only a casual tennis fan, but I told him to watch some of her shots and her game, and he said 'How come we hadn't heard of her before?'. As I've said loads of times now, it's great to be a Simona fan atm.

Can't wait either. And that time will come, but not just yet. Simona has all the great shots to do it, but she still doesn't believe that she can take SW down. There was some interview in the media after her Budapest win titled "Regina cu trei coroane" and the chapeau was "Doar Serena e de nebatut". Pretty much says it all.

I agree, but only ignorant people make judgement calls based on just one match. Simona as a player is a pyramid and those matches against SW are just two bricks in that pyramid, not the whole thing. I can understand random people on TF saying no matter what, but when commentators & "experts" start saying crap about her now, when she's playing her best tennis ever & has awesome back to back wins to Top 20 players it's just annoying. Narrow minded people only have eyes & kind words for the players trending at some point regardless of their results (it's amusing to hear all those predictions & talk about the rivalry between the prodigies Stephens and Robson, while Simona wins 4 titles in just 3 months.)

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Didn't see any of the New Haven matches, but watched Simona in Rome and Nuremberg. What I like about her is her ability to adjust to the opponents' games and her mental strength. She just doesn't give up. Great to see her making the Top 20. I'm not surprised at all!!
Her loss to Serena in Rome was due to exhaustion IMO. That was her 7th match as I recall in that tournament having come through qualies and then beating Radwanska and Jankovic in three set matches each. She will get another chance.

Right. And Halep will be trending soon enough. Confidence is an enormous elixir. Take a look at Kvitova to see a player without it; Halep has it. Drysdale/Stubbs, e.g., have walked a mile since Halep tanked in the first Cincinnati set against Serena. It's just so easy to be won over by her. And I'm willing to venture that remark as an observation of her character.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

In my opinion this was one of the best matches Simona ever played.
Clean game with just a few UE and amazing winners.
I was a bit afraid at the start when Petra started like a storm but Simona resisted and started to move her more.
