Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2
Players like Bine are certainly a tough match-up for Simona if they are on. She can overpower Simona if she is on but imo even if a big hitter like Bine is on Simona can stay with her and beat her eventually. Prime example of that is the first 5 games in New Heaven last year vs Kvitova. Petra is a big hitter too (much better than Bine) and she was GOATing in the first 5 games but Simona amazingly countered almost everything and led 3-2. From that moment Kvitova disappeared but I'm sure it's mainly because she was shocked that Simona was able to stay with her while playing her A game and we all know Petra's A game is one of the highest A games on the tour. So yeah, If Simona shows up with her A game, she should beat Lisicki even if she is on. It's a tough match for sure and I don't think we will see peak Simona vs Sabine. This injury is kinda worrying. Hope it's not serious and she shows up in good form.
