But it's not like Simona can't play against big hitters on fast courts .. She beat many of them on hard .. she beat Ivanovic herself on indoor hard .. I think it depends on simona form and health more ... but i agree that the big hitters are the toughest opponents of Simona when she isn't in good form

Yeah. Just with more top spin. This verison of Sveta is very lightweight compared to her prime version. There is really no big difference between the current Sveta and Simona in terms of power.

Simona says she feels good, her injury is OK now, and she feels prepared for Stuttgart because of her matches in the Fed Cup.

Yes. Big servers and ball bashers , these are the most dangerous types in a mediocre form day.

Now don't be rude . only once in an iw interview and once with the embarrassment thing was the case . Na Li also has problems in this manner and she's a lot older and with a more prestigious career .

Anyway, shouldn't WTA live be ...you know ....live !? Cause from what I understood , the interviews already took place . (see picture thread)

Just affectionate joshing.

It always seems live ... all the technical difficulties they have and the delays in starting on time. Maybe this time it is pre-recorded. Seems silly to have it once the tourney has started - some players might be involved in matches tomorrow close to that time. Or, maybe it will be live & Simona just bumped into the host in the corridor for that photo?

Actually, as soon as you look at this website http://tennis4wta.com/simona-halep/ (under the Rankings tab), things should become easier to understand. A player's best 16 results are taken into consideration when compiling the rankings but you have to take into account that the 4 Grand Slams + the YEC, Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid and Beijing are all mandatory events, which means the results from those tournaments will count, even if you lose in the 1st round. The non-mandatory event from Simona's list of 16 with the least amount of points is Nurnberg, therefore Simona has to get at least to the semifinal at Stuttgart to actually gain some points.

On second thought, that still doesn't sound simpler to understand

From now on, Simona will make less points at non-mandatory events because the 280 points from those 3 MM titles will have to be deducted from her tally after the next 3 good runs at Premier or Premier 5 tournaments.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I have high hopes of Simona in this event. I want to see her vs Pova badly. I'm just curious to see what will happen in this match-up. I feel this will be like Henin-Pova match-up which was a great one.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I think Simona will be fine for this tournament. Kuzy is a tough opponent, but she is mentally fragile and not as consistent from the baseline as Simona. Simona can go on the offensive or be patient in rallies and rely on her defense. And she's going to be well-rested. 3 full days off after the unfortunate rain-delayed scheduling during Fed Cup. So she'll be fresh as a daisy. And with all this time, her injuries have more time to heal fully, though she says she's fine now, and has no problems practicing.

This is a great opportunity for her.

They showed US-04 final couple of years ago. Kuzzy played a very powerful attacking game. Then she's had a more combination style.
She can use a flat forehand and with a heavy spin
