Tecumseh, you're more than welcome on the bandwagon (aka The Halep Express). I've noticed in the past that you always have good things to say about Simona, so we know you're not a Johnny-Come-Lately.

I like that she's letting her personality shine through a bit more this year. Things like that, and the little kisses she blows to the camera after bigger wins. Not brash or over-confident but just right, befitting the modest girl she is.

Simona Halep, Princess of Hearts

haha thats great....a whole nation behind Simona. Poor Sori as I can imagine this is something she would really love, while Simona seems to be a pure tennis player

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I don't believe in jinx, but I love how no one dared talk in the pre-match topics about the training session with Sveta, where she was said to play with surgical precision.
She showed much of that today.

just needs to work the nerves in serving out.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I bet Wim is thinking, "Wow, I've really landed on my feet with this job."

As far as I can see so far, he deserves every cent he pockets from Simona. Hopefully, he can get yet another of his players to a Slam final.

Thanks for the warm welcome, CheddarChomper!

I hope Simona will win the FO now.

But it's going to be tough, that's for sure.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Okay guys, now after a clearly better performance from Simona's part(compared with that from the previous game) I really think she has good chances to reach the final!
I don't know how good is Andrea at this moment, but she seems to be very good if she beat so easily Sara!
And don't bring the h2h, because it's not so important right now as we already know
I hope Simona will keep her nerves tomorrow and play at least as today, to have a very good chance at the final!

edot: i'm still so happy for her and yes, Wim deserves every cent from his salary!

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

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I could see only few points today as I was working in Nottingham, but she looked way more confident and relaxed than the other day, hopefully she will bring this to the SF...Petko is dangerous as she has nothing to lose though!

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Interesting stats , i`m sure u all know , but just to remind :

Sharapova - Winner 2014 of Stuttgart and Madrid - Clay
Petkovic - Winner in 2014 Charleston - Clay
Bouchard - Winner in 2014 Nuremberg - Clay
Simona - Finalist in 2014 Madrid - Clay ( No title on clay this year ) - ....

For my point of view , Serena was the other winner on clay at Rome and CSN , another winner on clay.
So , CSN lost to Bouchard - Clash of the 2 Champions on clay this year.

We will see what happen. I don`t want to debate this , just to be aware , this RG seems preety legit to me considering all this with a small flop by Serena in round 2.
