Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2
Well, I'm not sure what Hartson means by "fixed." Her ankle was taped today -- right ankle, check it out. All you have to do is watch the match today, and it's clear she favored it, especially on slides. I don't think she needs to withdraw. I'm curious as to how she'll move against Lisicki. Boom Boom moves well herself but speed-wise, she's not in Halep's league. So you'd hate to see a match in which such an advantage is neutralized. No, if anything, I think Halep needs a tough match, and facing Lisicki's serve would be tremendous in preparing for a potential semi against Serena. Course she'd have to get by Lisicki and Ivanovic, a tall order. I really do think Halep at her best ought to beat either of them, but she's not at her best at the moment.
