Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Nice win Simona! Loved the aggressiveness and some beautiful winners in the first set. I was having kittens until game 9 in the 2nd set though - a combination of Diyas stepping it up and Simona's level dropping. But the last 2 games showed good, clear focus on Simona's part. She needs to stop those slumps though if she's to go much further in this tourney.

Weren't those rallies near the end fantastic?! Very entertaining!

Not on the evidence of what I've just seen. She was pretty poor in the 7 or 8 games I saw of the 2nd set and only won it because Nara crumbled. Winners/UEs - 12/33 for JJ; 19/43 for Nara! If JJ plays like that against Simona, Simona will crush her in 2 sets.

I don't think it would be an upset for Simona to beat JJ. Simona has won their last 2 meetings and leads the H2H 2-1. Simona is the more talented player I think despite the rankings.

she really was better in 1st set but she had more winners in 2nd set

8 in the 1st and 10 in the 2nd , there were some beautiful winners also in 2nd set

Now this is a match we can never predict. Anything can happen. Both are about the same level when playing well.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I, too, am happy (because vindicated) that Halep is in the round of 16s. But not good enough! She can beat JJ -- but she'll have to serve better than she did today. Interesting to hear JJ is not well, but these players can drop in their level and still win (as Halep dropped in her level today and came out okay). When Eleven plays Eight why can't Eleven win?

Ah, but there was 10 games in 2nd set, only 7 games in the first!

I agree there were some beautiful winners in the 2nd too, but also some bad UEs so maybe that clouded my judgement about her winners in the 2nd.

Anyway, bring on Maria (or Domi) because I think she will raise her game again from today's level and deal with Jankovic.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Top 10 here we come!
Good game for Simona (only if she had a better serve) but now the real games are coming!
With JJ is gone be though (possibly to have SimoPhobia), but I hope her to win this crucial game because Cibulkova is waiting

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Training sessions have been finished and the big girls are waiting.

A little quiz for you. What have in common Hantuchova, Vinci, Suarez-Navarro, Petkovic, Plavyucenkova, Stosur ?

Eu n-am cerut să fiu român! Am avut noroc.
