Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 3

Are the Cincinatti courts faster than the ones in Stanford? I've watched Sabine vs. Ana a few days ago and the court seemed really fast.

They are as fast (if not faster).

Well, I hope Simona will adapt quickly to those courts. She'll have no HC matches under her belt at the time Cinci starts . So, fast courts + her situation = hard time.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 3

Just released 2014 WTA Tour Match Facts - http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...stats_2014.pdf

Simona's 'placings':
3rd on 2nd serve points won (50.0%)
5th on service games won (74.3%)
4th on points won on return of 1st serve (43.4%)
3rd on points won on return of 2nd serve (59.9%)
4th on break points converted (52.9%)
2nd on return games won (48.7%)

Of the 4 stats she isn't in the Top 10 for, she has these numbers:
Aces: 113 (Top 15-20?)
1st serve percentage: 61.6%
1st service points won: 67.2% (probably 11th or 12th)
Break points saved: 58.2% (Top 15?)

Source: http://www.wtatennis.com/players/pla...na-halep#stats

Strong on almost every stat! Only her 1st serve % is quite a way off, but it doesn't seem to affect her service stats too badly. However, looking at the Top 10 for 1st serve %, having a high number doesn't correlate with being a top 10 player anyway (are these players going for safety first?) - the same was true in 2013 (Simona was 9th with 67.7% then, but none of the Top 10 in that category were Top 10 players).

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 3

I always thought Stanford was faster than Cincinatti but I'm not fully sure...Setsuna, you are probably right.

Number of aces is good.

I'm actually not 100% sure like you but one can't really notice the difference. We are humans not radar guns If there is any difference in speed, it's VERY minimal it won't make any difference really. Both Cincy and Stanford are quite fast which is great of course. Too much slow HC ruined both tours.

Only 3? You are very tolerant!

I have 30, probably a quarter of them members of a certain fan-base also hailing from Eastern Europe. The unfortunate thing is you still see their posts when people quote them.

I have 0 . (Maybe also because I rarely get involved in "productive" discussions on GM)

Well, I like fight too but not when it's stupid and Malking is stupid. He tried to be a hater/troll but nope, doesn't work.

We Ourselves is a troll (for Simona at least), a good one, he's really funny, I like him. But Malking is just stupid. There are good trolls and bad one. Epic fail for Malking.

And we are OT and it's my fault again
