I don't know much about Babos, but based on her track record Simona should beat her quite easily I think.
The main thing Simona has to avoid is putting too much pressure on herself. Having already lost a few matches this year she really should have won, she may feel that she has something extra to prove in Budapest. She doesn't, she just needs to focus on her game and she'll be fine.
i think these players will never beat a top 10 player again .. she loses to anyone now !
i'm afraid that our expectations about simona was overrated
please simona comeback very soon .. i need to get back the confidence in you
After the clay season we will see where is her place, top ten or outside. I'm afraid too, that our expectations are a little bit to high, but we will see after she train whit Fissete a few month where she belong.

This is a very bitter pill. Simona's confidence is very low, she's losing matches she really should never lose.
But I think we need to look at the big picture. Simona is not the first player to go through a rough patch after achieving big things. You only need to look at Li Na. She could hardly win a match for months after she won the French Open. She was considering retirement halfway through last year. Now she has a second slam and is #3 in the world.
Compared to Na, Simona has the advantage that she's young. She will come through this. We just have to be patient.
