Re: Predict Simona Halep ranking at the end of 2014!

I agree! Given how few points she has to defend before Rome I think she (injuries permitting) will be ranked 5 or 6 by May. By season's end, somewhere in the 6-8 range. Even if she ends ranked 8 I think it would still represent great progress for her and, of course, would mean we get to see her under the flashy lights at the YEC in Singapore.

Re: Predict Simona Halep ranking at the end of 2014!

certainly 5-8...
If she manages to go deep in any of the 1st 3slams she'll be definitely pushing for a top5 finish...

I'm going to be bold and predict deep runs at 3 of the slams ...

Re: Predict Simona Halep ranking at the end of 2014!

James Peeling who writes the MooTennis blog predicts Simona will end 2014 ranked #5.

http://mootennis.com/2013/12/08/wta-...ions-for-2014/

The bit about Simona goes:

Jumping on the Simona Halep bandwagon? Of course I am. Halep had a remarkable 2013 season that saw her clinch her first WTA title and five more on a variety of surfaces. She enjoyed four top 10 wins and ended the season with back-to-back titles in Moscow and Sofia. The one area that Halep has not yet conquered is the Grand Slams and a 4th round showing at this year’s US Open, where arguably she should have done better, is her career best. However now at a world ranking of number 11, her draws at the Slams are going to be much more workable. Halep has stopped working with her coach, Adrian Marcu, but no-one can take away what she did in 2013 and if she remains aggressive with her approach on court nothing should stop her. We have seen the successes of counter-punchers like Wozniacki and Errani all cracking the top 5 and Halep has shown a great deal of versatility this year to suggest she can do it too. A Grand Slam semi-final, most likely at Roland Garros, beckons…

Welcome on the bandwagon - there's room for everyone!

Wow, that would be great! Were you one of the noisy ones in Sofia shouting "SI-MO-NA! SI-MO-NA!"?

I'm going to try to make Eastbourne this year. Hopefully she will play there instead of s'-Hertogenbosch because Eastbourne is now a Premier level tourney.

Yup, I was one of them I want to go to Roland Garros too although it's not easy to follow your favorite player at big tournaments. You have to buy tickets for one of the 3 main courts and It's hard to predict on which of them Simona will play.

Well done to you then for helping to create what sounded like an incredible atmosphere on TV! It's no wonder she felt a bit overwhelmed by it all and had a little cry off-court after the final.

Re: Predict Simona Halep ranking at the end of 2014!

I don't want to jinx it, but I'll say #7

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.

I think she'll finish around #7. Where is she?
