Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I would have preferred to not see her in Azarenka's section, but with a probably tired Pavlyuchenkova in R1 and two inconsistent players in R2, she has a good chance to reach R3 easily.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Ha, what a joke. You could hardly have hand picked a worse draw if you were trying to pick her the toughest draw by hand.

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

I actually want the hardest possible draws for her from now on, no more kidding around. I hope she still has her good form and will not lose in R1's or R2's in the future.

Why would you want that?

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Yeah, seriously speaking it is a bad draw - she could have landed in Errani's or Woz's quarter for example (that's what seeds 14 and 15 got)

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

And those two rounds before Azarenka are not walks in the park either...

Re: Simona Halep (Romānia)

Guys, she's a pretty good player now, don't be afraid of hard draws.

You are surely not talking about Irina-Cakewalkelia here. She had the easiest R1 draws in slams this year by quite some margin.

Sorana's walks to R3 at each slam this year have been a mega joke as well and she still messed up in 2 of them.

Simona just couldn't take advantage of a depleting US Open draw. But she is usually the unluckiest one of the bunch.

True, but everyone wants her to be fresh when eventually facing the Tier I players in later rounds.
But if she is losing early here, she will have more time to recover for Beijing where even more points are awarded.

The difference being next week with Serena and Li back, and Halep's seeding, she's highly likely to get a tough draw in R3. This draw is full of soft sections, next week probably not so much.
