I think Simona is also under pressure, that's the only way to explain her passive game.

Robot or not robot her main problem in this start of the season is, that she didn't made a good preparation in off season and sees this. Now she has a trainer who i'm sure that she will take her game to another lvl. All i hope is that she will keep a trainer full time and with the hope that she learn someting in this start season and she will not repeat the same thing next off season too, because she can't afford now to behave like a semiprofesionist tennis player.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I'm not so worry about this loss she showed sings that she return to her best form. Anyway the main concern should be to perform well on Slams and Pm Mandatory from where she can gather points from earlier rounds.

You can say that, but is not an excuse. Anyway training in Romania is not a very profesionist job for a TOP 10 player. You don't have condition in winter here to have a productiv preparation. Maybe next off season she will train in a professional environment at an academy. She is new on this lvl and i'm sure that she learn with every mistake that she make. She is a smart girl. Her A game is close to appear in next tournaments. Just wait and see.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I guess we all agree that there are some aspects of Simona's tennis environment that need some professional change.

May it be her scheduling or her training conditions. Staying in Dubai for example like most top athletes over the off-season shouldn't be a problem for her now as she is having the results to justify that place and the money as well.

Being a Top 10 player brings a lot more pressure and more responsibility and she might feel this as a burden now.

I think she should take a break after that long Australian trip. There is not much time since she was in Quarter Final.
I think she is the only Quarter Finalist playing here. Or .... Am I wrong?
Halep has great fans ... and a lousy management team. It's obvious. I hope she gets rid of all of them before they ruin her career.

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there!! Konjuh: sky is the limit !!!! Watch out for Aiava!! Kristie Ahn, Sophie Chang, you are cool !!!!

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

A good game for Mladenovic but Simona is ,I don't know...a little different?
The defeat itself doesn't count at all, but for her confidence this is pretty bad!
She is awkwardly passive and with a serve that doesn't help her (in fact is pulling her down at certain moments)
it's hard to win against this kind of players on this surface!
Oh well, I really hope she is in bad shape right now and what's best will come in near future!

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

great result! exactly what she needed! now Doha really looks affordable! Believe me or not, I was supporting Mladenovic today. If she would have gone further Doha would have been compromised, now she really has to focus and to realize she is not the kind of player to win performing lousy. I just hope that she won't launch into FED Cup and that she will keep Wim. She will really focus in Doha, u know... no taxes That will be our tournament to cheer :P

LOL LOL.. In my book, that's call BAD Management. She doesn't have to go lose her first match in Paris, in order to have time for Doha. ...Geeezzz.. What kind of thinking is that?
No one put a gun to her head to play.
For you to come here and say it's great she lost is unbelievable.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Ok, that was not a good match from Simona, but she didn`t played really bad also. Mladenovic just played her best tennis ever, serving Serena`s style, all those Aces and Winners from all over the court. But I can`t understand ONE thing: Why was she allowed to play a double match and the next day play the single one against Simona ? I mean, the hole idea for the delayed R1 was for Mladenovic to have one more rest day since she played AO Final, not for her to go against Simona with already an official match on the Paris courts. And another thing, how is it possible for an Premier Tournament with only 2 courts to not have Hawk-Eye ?
Like you guys said, she shouldn`t have come to this Tournament, just like I don`t see a good idea for her to play now more than 2-3 games in FED Coup. Maybe this loss is a win for her, now having a little more time to train with her new coach

You are completely right m8. I was wasted last night. I'll try not to combine booze and posting in the future. :P

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I didn't see the match but it looks to me like 2 bad losses in a row for Simona (last year Simona would have eaten Mladenovic for breakfast).

No need for the idiots in GM to write her off already - it's staggering the number of people there who appear not to have watched her last year, but seem to think they can judge her game on her 2014 performances! However, the only positive spin to put on the 2 defeats would be that hopefully they give Simona a much needed kick up the backside. Who knows, 11 days hard work with Wim before Doha may do wonders for her on-court approach & form.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

Simona is kind. Maladenovic's last top-50 win was one year ago
