Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Simona maintains her incredible recent record in WTA events* against players ranked #4 to #20 - she's now 18-1 against these players since 's-Hertogenbosch 2013!!!!!

* Not counting Fed Cup last month

Edit: At the moment, I feel like it would be the best win evvvveeeerrrr if she could make it 19-1 tomorrow.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

Damn. Maybe somebody recorded from BT sport. I hate how Dolce comments Simona`s game.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Such an impressive effort today by Halep. Hingis's strategy, of drop-shotting Halep until she was frustrated, worked for a set. But Halep played herself into that match, and by the middle of the second set, she was having her way within the points, and frustrating Lisicki. When Lisicki is playing well, she's a happy warrior, but when she gets puzzled she loses concentration, and that first serve of hers was the first to go. Halep's composure is the real deal. Her athleticism is Clistersesque. Her concentration beautiful to behold. Let's hope there's rest enough before Ana that she can play herself into that one, too. By the beginning of the third set today we were beginning to see how difficult Halep can be.

Simply because Lisicki didn't allow it. Even if Simona had her on the backfoot, Sabine had no problems to get back into a winning position again by a simple injection of pace or an angle. Both are risky shots to play, but they paid off more than not. Lisicki was moving pretty well, I thought.

Simona was able to control the rallies in the third because Sabine's average groud stroke speed decreased over the match and also because she got a much better read on her serve.

Btw, that one game she lost after 40-0 was probably the most unnecessary break of serve in the history of tennis. I'm glad she got over it quickly.

It`s true the fact that Sabine drop her level , and gave Simona confidence that she needed , and finally , she started making those shots to finish her in style. Until then , for me it was quite a scary match , because i almost see a volatile Simona verry angry on some parts.

She did what she could considering that she was far from her form in the first set ( she seem to me kinda scary of those big serve , i was even more lol before the game started ) )

Anyway is just an oppinion , everyone lives a game at different intensity .
I agree with most of that ,, but If we said that Simona won because Bine's drop we will ignore that Simona level itself was down in the first set and she gifted the set in the last game to Lisicki ,,, at the end the player who could play close to her level for more sets has won ..
Simona herself played terribly vs Ana and Kuznetsova .. She had terrible amount of errors and she was leading 5-2 and totally disappeared .. we gave all credit to her opponents and no one said they won because Simona was bad ..It's not like i mind taking advantage of opponents drop .. it's is not a shame if it happened .. Many players can show great level vs top players but they can't maintain this .. it's their fault

I see that most of you guys give Ana big favorite for tomorrow. Trust me, Simona will destroy her!

That`s true also. I always said i am over criticizing Simona. We can agree at one thing , if Simona keep that 1-set form and Sabine hers 1-st set form, she probably loss , but thanks God , we have a fighter, and she keep fighting and reading that puzzle until it didn`t matter no more. Sabine totally colapse at the end.

I didn't express my self. I think that Simona learn her lesson against a big hitter today and tommorow will not repeat the same mistake to be passive and to let the opponent to take control of the match. What i like about her that in the 3 set today she step it up and started to dictate the rallies, practicaly she transform Sabine in a pusher. That being said, i say that tommorow chances are 50-50 but no way Ana is a favorite to win and if Simona play like she did in the last part today, from the begining of the match tommorow will win. I'm sure about it.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Why Simona have to play first match on the second court when Aga and Garcia played earlier than her ! And after that their is a double match and they could have put Simona's match instead of it .. Very weird

About the match ,, I don't know if Simona still have something in her tank to play this tough match against the fresh and more rested Ana ..
But anyway I'm satisfied now .. I wished a QF and it happened .. she had some good matches under her belt after this long days without matches and I'm sure if she keeps healthy she will be better in the rest of clay season ..
If she won it would be great gift for us .. I only sure that she will fight to the end

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I am not saying that from my hart, I am saying from my brain. Simona is so strong mentally that Ana will have no chance tomorrow.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I didn't see her sign the camera on BT Sport but it seems she's now doing it in English (the Arruabarrena match too). Part of her new media-friendliness?
