Aha, they've finally realised who the future of the WTA is.

That may be the only positive thing , because in the rest of the time , they're busy (still) ignoring her.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I don't think the WTA is ignoring Simona, it's not like they should make her a statue or something like that, or just not yet. She is a newcomer and received a lot of praise on their website and also on their facebook page, I remember a Simona cover photo on their Facebook page, if I remember corectly it was before Australian Open. I prefer her getting this kind of limited praised that lot's of praised like Genie for other things than tennis.

Totally agree with you on this one. She is not the WTA pet just yet (Serena is and will still be for a long time on), she's not WTA's darling (like Genie and Robson are, for marketing reasons, obviously), but she sure does receive a lot of attention these days. I really think anything more would be distracting Simona from what really matters at this point.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2



whoa whoa , I didn't say regarding her , directly, physically , but indirectly. I don't want a 2nd Bouchard


In comparison with other Top 10 players, the articles about her (performances) are very short and much less frequently posted or highlighted. Also, the same for the WTA post-match interviews and/or press conferences (although you may say this is pressure also, but it's not)


If I remember correctly , Belle de Jour and others first commented on this a while ago. (not me)


Also , about today's WTA Live, as I said before, why was the initial post (that most of the internet people saw at the time) edited 2-3 days after, with her name and she hasn't been mentioned absolutely anywhere on the social media !?!?

There was also a #AAHfancast video , they had to choose 3 out of a total of 4 (4th is Simona's) and guess what , they chose the ones for the players that go on WTALive Every freaking time. (2 weird/creepy ones + 1 after the deadline)


You may think otherwise, but if they fucking invited her , at least "respect" her a little more FFS.



And I could go on but it's too much already .But this is my opinion and we can't all agree on all things.

Maybe, but that was at the end of last year IIRC. At that time, media attention was somehow important for Simona because she was nominated for that Most Improved Player Award and when you're running for that it's hard to get the votes if people don't write or talk about you. Since then, things have changed a lot. She got that award, won Sofia, won Doha and all eyes are on her right now. Even those guys misspelling her name know pretty damn well who she is

Nightcrawl3r, it's very good that you have your on ideas, I don't see any problem in that, would be boring that we all have the same ones

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Simona will probably be named WTA Player Of The Month this evening. Or at least I think she should be, don`t know other player that can diverse it more than she does

Li Na, Venus, Cibulkova would be the oponents, my opinion!

No Li or Dominika this month, it`s between Simona (P5), or Pavlyuchenkova (P), or Venus (P). Obviously, the more important tournament was won by Simona (P5) so this should be a no brainier
