This terrific thing that Halep has been saying (in English), "I feel good in my body," Alison Riske echoes in the first half of this article, the second half of which is about Halep, and her commenting, after the Kirilenko, "I played without mistakes."

I thought it was a little funny when she said at the press conference that she was "very wet because it was hot" instead of very sweated.

Simona often says some things that sound a little weird when she speaks English. She actually enunciates English words pretty well but her sentence structure is poor at this point. I think she'll improve if she continually has to do interviews in English. If she gets to the semifinals later this week she will really be in the national spotlight.

Simona Halep about

... her latest lost against Pennetta
Rain is a disadvantage, especially if you wait for two to three hours, because it takes your rhythm. For me it was a disadvantage, but have I to accept it, because that's the game. I knew that the match against Pennetta would be tough as she already beat me twice in the past. She is a great player and played very good tennis.

... her 2013
It is a special moment in my life because I reached the top 20 in little time. I had to face top players, but I was playing at a very high level. It was a hard time for me, but also very nice because I was able to win a lot.

... earning 165,000 dollars as prize money in New York
I have not yet thought about what to do with money, but my priority now is to play many tournaments, also to invest it in myself and to climb to a higher level.

... her plans for the future
It is possible for me to still gain some positions this year. There are a few tournaments left. It will not be easy, but I'll do my best. For now I'll take a couple of days off to enjoy some vacation.

... a possible mixed doubles with Horia Tecau
I haven't thought about it yet, but it's very likely to happen in the future.

I hate the questions about money. I find people who ask them so intrusive.

True that, and I also noticed long ago how much of a topic that seems to be for the editorial department of prosport. They would always mention the prize money a certain player has won for reaching a certain round and even made a big headline when Sorana just took over the Romanian #1 of all time tennis earnings on the WTA.

I mean, it's not hard to know that our WTA girls are in fact the by far richest and highest paid female active athletes we have in our country right now.

We should really focus on the successes first and instead of relating it all to the money, just realize that Simona for example is probably the most successful individual sport athlete in Romania right now regardless of sport or money.

Strange goal, to be number 13 for one day that is.

She is right, Andrei Pavel at his best is magnificent.

It will take a long time to have a player like him on the ATP again.

Yes, I remember when he unexpectedly won that Masters series tournament in Canada, played the final against Patrick Rafter. That's been the highest achievement for a Romanian player since Nastase.
However, before that I remember being mad at him because he dismissed me very rudely (read cussing) when I tried to encourage him from the stands at the RCA championship in Indianapolis. He was losing to an obscure Danish player and was obviously upset.

Maybe, one day, Simona will do that too.
