Re: Simona Halep (România)

I wrote an entry for my blog about the upsets of the first week, but I pulled a great focus on what I think may be one of the most spectaculr matches of the whole open, the 4th round clash between Flavia and Simona...if both play well this may actually be a classic

have a read if you please! http://ski-and-tennis.blogspot.it/20...t-falling.html

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I read it and I liked it
As about Simona - Flavia match, I know that you want Flavia to win and this is normal but whom do you really think that is the favorite in this match?

Simona is like a surprise box this days . You can't predict anything about her right now .

I am probably as much as a fan of both (well you could see that in here as well I guess), but I really want Flavia to win this one, because age is surely not going to help her to have many other good runs

yet, I honestly believe that Simona (as said in the article) is the favourite heading into this match, because the two play a very similar tennis, but Simona's form seems a lot more reliable than Flavia's...the H2H is not a factor here, but I do believe that Simona won't run away with an easy walk like she did with Makiri, I honestly would be quite surprised if it doesn't go to the 3rd

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

It would be heartbreaking for Flavia to miss, yet again, a great oppotunity to reach the SF in NY. But I'll be rooting for Simo anyway

Fucking Rain

she already missed it, when she shitted her pants at *4-2...it's horrible to be a fan of hers, because it's been a whole career like that.

I bet Simo is finishing comfortable in the 3rd, some 6-1 or 6-2

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

I hope you're right, if there will be a third set, but with this rain delay... I'm afraid Flavia is gonna get her shit together

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I really hope that during this delay Adrian Marcu will help Simona a lot.
When the match restarts she needs to be at a high level.
The 1st point can be so important.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

No way, I had to really be somewhere after the first set, can't belive the match stopped at this score, with match point for Simo, how the fuck did they stopped the match there?

I'm not sure Adrian Marcu is with her. I didn't see him with Mlendea at the match against Watson. There was only Mlendea in her box.
