Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Keys to beating Radwanska. Simple solution.
Move forward and finish the point. Don't keep rally going when you don't have to. Radwanska is not going to give you 30 UEs in the rally. Don't extend the points. When she is back struggling to bring the ball back in play, don't wait at the baseline. Move to the middle of the court to wait for it there.. and knock the ball down... Come on Coach, time to practice that.
If Halep can do that on half of the cheap balls that come her way, she will be a more dangerous player than she already is.

I noticed she is no longer taking 2 step backs when her opponent tosses the ball to serve. That's 1 major change already.

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

You right, but to describe how she should play against Radwanska tommorow in a few words - Just play like you did against Sara - and you are in final 100%. I hope that she can continue with her best form from today, tommorow too. I can wait for the game. Make us all proud of you Simo.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I belive that tommorow will be definitively much harder. Nobody challenge Radwansaka in this tournament. Only easy wins for her, so we can't expected from her to be tired, but i'm confident that if Simona play like today it would not matter how Radwanska will play. The match is in Halep pocket.

Wondering if Kim watched the match She congratulated Wim Fissette for the win.

Life is bigger. It's bigger. Consider this. The hint of the century. What if all these fantasies. Come flailing around. Now I've said too much. That's me in the corner. That's me in the spotlight. Losing my religion. Trying to keep up with you. And I don't know if I can do it.

Very tough match against Aga, but Simona has nothing to lose.

She should play her game, and if it's good enough that's fine, if not that's okay as well. I like Simona's chances, but Aga is a class act, so it will be a big deal if Simona beats her, and no disgrace if she loses, as long as she competes well.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

If she plays like today she will win but a bit harder ( if aga plays well )

aga is a better player than sara and has a good serve and doing well in the Tournament

whatever happens it's a great tournament for her

Really looking forward to that match

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Given her recent form I was even happy with her just making the QF.

Now, it wouldn't be a surprise if she won the whole tournament!

Halep was asked to elaborate on the injury. "It's in my Achilles," she said. "I feel pain, and when I'm running I feel it. I hope it isn't a very dangerous injury and that it will get better soon
she must be careful .. it's a dangerous area
any way i think she should cancel dubai to get rest and have some points to add next season

She has not withdrawn from Dubai till now and I don't think she will.

You (plural) want her to skip too many tournaments. As for Paris , I agreed too , for this one I Don't ! (only if she/ her physio think she could injure herself more) because you can't rely only on Premier 900, 1000 and GS . You have to play Premier 700's too !
