Ok, sorry. I am quite new to following tennis so I haven't fully got to grips with the way the ranking points system works. I understand some of it but obviously not all the 'ins and outs' of it. I'll try to be more informed in future!

Yes. It's not official TF-slang. Mickey Mouse - International tournament - 280 points

Hahahaha, good one mate ! She wants to be no. 1, every pro tennis player does. Simona is only trying to take all the pressure off her shoulders, and at the same time admits that 2014 will be a much harder year for her as she has all this points to defend. But don`t fool yourself, Simona is a fighter (just quoting her words) and if she`ll get the opportunity to go higher on top, she will take it with an ACE

Not in this moment! The best two P5 tournaments will become mandatory for her only after the second P5 of the year, Rome. Till then Cinci is counted like an usual tournament.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I meant to say for the next season, not in her entire career. I know that she wants to be nr 1, I just hope that she realize how close is next season to crack even top 5 whit the right schedule.

That's a good thing. There is nothing wrong in having less pressure on your shoulders. Let's not forget what was Simona's goal for 2013, it wasn't top 20. She just wants to play quality tennis, that could help her reach top 5. I think she cares more to play tennis and winning than reaching world number one at the moment. Setting her goal for 2014 the top 20 is great, she has points to defend and she doesn't need the pressure.

You understand my thoughts, but i realy want badly for her to be top 5 next season and if she continue whit her form, from the end of 2013 whit a right schedule she can be top 5, nevertheless i will lover her the same no matter what she will do in the next seasons.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Hello everybody, a new seaso is here and I am back again after several months, lets see what Moni does this year, after many years watching her playing, I hope this season wont be so frustrating like others, the last match I saw was in Madrid last year, just before she started to win jajaja. Whatever, I heared top 20 or 30 players have to say in advance which tournaments are going to play in, I dont know whether this is true, anybody knows about this, and where can I check?, thank you everybody.

^ 2013 frustrating for Simona?

Try the Upcoming Tournaments forum on TF for entry lists. Other than that I don't know the source that aggregates all the players' plans.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Consistency is one thing; the business end of majors is another. Both ought to be the goal: with the first, she'll have the chance to win other tournaments, and keep, or improve, her ranking; the second will get her the respect her ascension deserves.
