Most of us knew that, but it`s no reason to go and train by yourself after the tremendous year you had and hoping that things will work out. I think that Ms. Ruzici and Simona will find someone that will help this girl to go UP !

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I hope, that she will bring her A game to AO, but i'm afraid that she will have a slow start of the season

But still, being coachless couldn't have possibly caused such a big fall in her game.
i didn't know this about marcu this is a new information to me

but this explains ending the work with him , don't explain being coachless and not having a new one

this is what she may be blamed for and i'm sure she will fix that very soon

Shame Simona couldn't have got at least one more match after this under her belt. Oh well Simona, 6 or 7 days of good training and practice to get ready for Melbourne.

Yes, it's the same guy in blue. But there was a different guy in white shirt during Sydney.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Bucharest -Sydney 9 hrs timezone difference and 1 day is needed for every hour so the body can adapt.
She had only 3 days there when she played with Keys.
After this week of training I hope she will be all right, game wise and fit for tennis.

Am I the only non-Romanian guy in Halep's corner?
Stop panicking guys. Halep is fine.
She'll use her first 2 matches at AO to get it going.

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

by corner do you means sub-forum ? Because there are more foreigners on this page [#61] than Romanians

Yes.. Modest is my name. I feel like the only non-romanian speaking Halep fan here.
The girl is fine. Put the Romanian flag down and relax.

Far from it, there are a lot of non-Romanians in Simona's corner. Just because some of us have crticised the fact that she didn't hire a new coach, doesn't mean that we are not in her corner. I (and probably most of the people here) will continue tu support her even if she would play like this in every match this year :P

No, me too - supporting Simona ferociously from England! I've noticed others too from the UK, Germany, Spain, Greece etc. I think all of us here are still in her corner, it's just a lot of us were shocked by how much her Sydney performance dropped off from her form of last season. Some rustiness was expected but how could she have been so bad? I think that's the question many of us were asking and concerned about. Especially, when you see most of the other top players looking reasonably sharp in their first match (and at least able to keep the ball in court )

Anyway, I've calmed down a bit and I have more hope now that maybe she just takes a little longer than most to get back into the groove after the off-season. Like you say, with a kind draw for the first couple of rounds at the AO, we could see Simona back to near her best very soon.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Here's another non-Romanian glad she's not using a coach right now. Taking last season's confidence boost out on a test-run. Have not yet watched the loss to Keys, but from what U.S. media reports, Keys had to have a coach nurse her through the second set nerves that came from such an easy time she was having with Halep. It should take another few weeks to see how Halep will do on her own. My own hopes are fervent! As is my admiration.
