You are being pessimistic, I think she will lead the pack by year end

Some of you really go into war mode whenever someone says anything about her that is not positive. She is not perfect, you know. Take a chill pill, guys
Ok, i'll agree with you if it puts the matter to rest... and because i really like your positive attitude, if you tell me where you are from, i'm gonna send you a present for easter

The matter is at rest, the only problem is that every day a kindergarten guy wakes up and calls me stupid, idiot, retard, ignorant without thinking. There are playstation games forum for that kind of behavior.

One question: I think in Doha on the betting sites Aga was considered favorite in the SFs. Din anyone bet? Does anyone know which were the odds back then?

I will stop answering you (at least for a while) because you seem too full of yourself and can't accept the fact that you made even a little mistake. Also, I wasn't referring to you personally in that message but you felt the need to show off. Good luck with this attitude. Regards.

Simona was 2.29, Aga was 1.62 (average odds of the British bookmakers) - http://www.tennisexplorer.com/doha/2014/wta-women/
For tomorrow's match it's almost the opposite - Simona is 1.62 and Aga is 2.26

This site is really good for all the odds on WTA & ATP matches (and lots of ITF) going back years. Click on the 'Tour Calendars' link in the left menu to access the different tournaments. From the home page you can access odds for current tournament matches.

It might be interesting if Simona meets Maria or Vika soon to see what the odds were when they last met.

I think she is keeping her A game for the slams, because I bet those are the only reason for her to step up and to become the best woman tennis player from history!
Her back and her age ar also a factor, but for the moment, a small one!
But we will see

And please , get over the missunderstanding with the other Simona fan's, it's a pity to argue between us suddenly!
Not worth it

A few people can win somebody's heart in a lifetime.But, she has already occupied a spot in mine

So cute off-court , so deadly on-court ! Simona Halep

Not worth it
An A game for sure Serena can still play, but I guess not in a sustained manner. Federer had great matches last year too, but not constantly. Anyway what I am saying is only a vague feeling, it would be stupidly impossible to assert smth like that with certainty.

I was always over. Except to Mido, the first rude guy, I just answered in a civilized manner to every guy who implied or said that I am idiot/ignorant/stupid/retard. You should address to them.
