Anybody here who might help out an English-speaking Halep fan? I'd be curious to know what Halep says about the experience of playing Serena.

I expect a man to be pissed with her ​​decision , but did not expect to be criticized by a Czech porn star volleyball Alena Schurkova . She said: Serena Williams, as proof that breasts need not be an obstacle in one’s game. Instead, all that is really needed is a “good support bra.” Sucksova a genius.

Simona Halep says he is not yet able to win in front of world leader, Serena Williams.
"It's hard, do not think just take guts to be able to beat Serena. It's a complete player, a player with more experience, playing a full court, has all shots, is very aggressive, has more power than us, because it is very well developed. It is also a very ambitious person, and that I like to learn from it. I admire, it really is the best player of all time "

Thanks noname29! That's both about what I would expect Halep to say, but then again, it's very impressive, as well, because it suggests Halep fully comprehends what it will take to play with Serena, and in the "guts" department, at least, she's able to match her.

As I have said here before: Halep's first task is to get into Serena's service games -- she's gotta get that (especially second) serve TIMED. Watch Vika do it.

Oh, and can I just say about the fulminations of American Network Morning Shows: the coverage here (in the U.S.) of plastic surgery is actually much better than the coverage of women's sports. The demographic for that newsoid is U.S. women who have gone through plastic surgery, exploited here at the cost of trivializing the concerns of those who actually enjoy tennis!

They are exaggerating, she didn't lose it like they are implying And she is always criticizing herself during matches (for those who follow her).
My favorite one was "The implor, bag-o in teren!!!" when she was struggling to serve.

I can imagine Mlendea focusing on Begu in the future.

There was some discussion in the past about Simona and Irina-Camelia rotating coaches with Mlendea traveling alternately with either girl. Now that Begu is without a coach, this would actually be a very pleasing solution taking into account that she herself doesn't seem at all happy with her current coaching situation.

I revise my statement. Mlendea will coach Jankovic from the start of next year according to the news.
However, coming from a Romanian news site, I'll definitely wait for confirmation.

I hope Simona knows what she is doing, but one thing for sure - her sudden rise in play and rankings of course didn't get unnoticed.
