Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I am also not Romanian
I've been posting in Halep's thread since 2008 or 2009 and she's always had several non-Romanian fans

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Simona's sparring partner is Bogdan Borza '?? Sper sa fie o gluma...LOL.. ca sa nu pling
Understand that some time wants to be without a coach, but even a ordinary sparring partner can not afford? Let's face it, I think Keys hit the ball twice more powerful than Borza. It's better to send him to walk, as he did with Marcu, and buy... a ball machines ... Good Luck Simona.

I don't know, somebody said that he was just for a day or so and I think he was right. I have just seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_Pwl...ature=youtu.be

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.
Cheddar, do you live in London?

"Borza a invatat sa joace tenis de la Federer." De unde le scot astia asa gogonate nu stiu si probabil nici nu voi sti vreodata.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

^ Romania, ce sa te astepti . A facut reclama aia in care era si Federer si gata , a invatat tenis de la el

Daca era un titlu de tabloit, suna cam asa probabil : "HALUCINANT ! Federer invins de un pusti roman de 16 ani. Noua stea a Romaniei este noul urmas al campionului mondial elvetian"

Ah, nice idea though.

BTW, is there many Romanians in London?

There are a few tens of thousands from what I hear, in some areas more than in others. But most of them were here before January 1st

Well, if Simona ever wins a Slam, try and gather them together and I'll come down for the party!

Neah, you have to come for the final I was talking with a Romanian guy the other day (who had no interest in sports) and he had never heard of Simona Halep
