Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

You guys think alot about future.
However, match result is good for Halep, bad for Mladenovic.
Looks like Halep is really bad on fast surfaces and did what she can. Yes, she won grass tournament, but by players's opinion it was slowest grass ever.
So I'm not sure she is in bad shape.
I guess she will show some hardcore on normal hard, after this match.

Or maybe she is just like thos Nadal, likes the sun..

pff, but still errors at atacks... I hope this is just surface and ball bounce

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I'm a little disappointed about yesterday match. Simona played really bad, at least in the second part of the game. Mladenovic served well and this was all, she played bad too, but a little better than Simona. But this is tennis, isn't it? You can't play well al the time. We will see another Simona in Doha.

Only when the present is too painful to think about.

I don't think there is any way of dressing up Simona's 2 latest defeats - on the basis of the first 6 matches of the year, she is currently in poor form (also fitness-related?) and lacking the confidence/ability to be more aggressive and take control of points early on like she did so successfully last year. The surface has relatively little to do with it I think.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

Simona . I understand your grief, but if we consider Simona shape and on the other hand opponent came super motivated (we know how important is motivation, see Rome), playing in front of her supporters, surface in her favor, on top played almost perfect!
So if we take all these things into consideration, this defeat is not as painful as it looks.

Simona is far from its maximum shape, but in my opinion she did not play so bad as we say. You say that she had to be more aggressive? Agree with you, but how to be aggressive when you're not in shape, or concentrate? Or how play aggressively, when opponent hits the ball strong and accurate, and complete most of the points in 1-3 shots? To play aggressively, against an on form big hiter is not easy at all. She needs rhythm, pace, it combines defense, attack, she does not have the strength, nor the game, to make the point at first or second shot.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

So the "almighthy" Mladenovic was sent packing by Petko???
I guess Petko had no problem with the "Serena-esque" 200mph serves from Mladenovic.

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there.

But Petko is a good player, and Simona is indeed a little to far from her best form!
I saw that she said she must improve her serve a lot so ... this is a veeeeeryyy good thing from my point of view :P
I don't know how great are your expectations but Simona is not Serena,Victoria or Na Li and maybe she starts much slower or maybe she is just much better on clay (Nadal type :P )
We will see in 1 month or 2 how will be the rest of the year (with approximation) :P

I don't know if you're trying to be sarcastic but :


Halep match vs. Petkovic match in Mladenovic stats:

11 aces vs. 2 aces
4 DFs vs. 6 DFs
56% 1st serve vs. 52% 1st serve
77% 1st serve pts won vs. 60%
51% 2nd serve pts won vs. 25%
3/6 BPs saved vs. 3/9

and I could continue.


I'm not trying to find more excuses but you can see only from the stats that Mladenovic's performance was very different . LET'S HAVE PATIENCE !

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Last year same result, even worse, in Paris.
Lost her first match to Vinci 6-0 6-3.
Forget running to Paris after Aussie Open. LOL

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there.

Nightcrawl3r, big Petkovic just can not allow aces, she has big arms.
Simona usualy uses her speed, rare moment at NH http://youtu.be/Uuu3Y_tC_6A?t=6m37s

There were some easy balls when she could hit more aggressively but she didn't try at all.
But Simona sounds good

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Simona, in acest moment al carierei este ca un alpinist talentat, dar obisnuit numai cu inaltimi mici, care a pornit sa cucereasca Everestul. Purtat de ambitie si elan a ajuns mult mai repede decat isi planificase la una din ultimile baze inainte de asaltul final, lasandu-si in urma toate ajutoarele. Acum trebuie sa se odihneasca, sa se obisnuiasca cu aerul rece si rarefiat, sa-si replanifice traseul si sa-si astepte echipamentul strict necesar pentru asemenea sarcina. Sa avem rabdare, asaltul final va incepe. Sper sa fie perfect pregatit, nu conteasca cat de tarziu va fi dat.

Eu n-am cerut să fiu român! Am avut noroc.

Frumos spus. Asa sa fie! Dar macar in turul 1 al turneelor sa nu mai piarda
