Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Pennetta came out sharp and went back to her first set form; Halep didn't have time to play herself back into the match. A good win for Pennetta, for whom USO experience turned out to be important. She likes playing in NYC, and that ended up helping her.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

She would have lost this in the decider anyway, I guess.

Flavia was able to recover and ran down everything, while Simona had a lot of tennis lately, she was impatient and unfocused.

It is what it is, the rain fucked up big time.

This is what I wrote in the match result thread.

Simona just came out mind-blocked and Flavia capitalized nicely with good length and nice defence, basically like the start of the match.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

The tie-break showed the big difference of experience between those two: Flavia knew that is better not to risk in TB and let Simona forced the points.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Anyway this is just the beginning of Simona's career. If she continues like that she will be in top 10 faster than we expect it and a custom presence in the final rounds of the biggest tournaments.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I am little gutted for Simona, I clearly was pulling for Flavia, but it's still a tough loss for Simona, yet she has so much to learn from this match and I believe that she's have so many more chances to go deep, already at the USO

to all you fans of her

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Pennetta was amazing in the first set,better than Simona, and rain delays are something you have to cope with. (Why the fuck it always rains only during Grand Slams?)

Yup, she still has a lot of time left and has a long way to go. I can't wait for her next tournament.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

she will do a good use of this weeks off and then she can swing in Asia to get into the top 16 for the AO

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Gutted . Really felt she was in a dominant position before the rain delay. Pennetta seemed ready to implode the match away.
