OMG Incredible news!!! It's really a great start here, I was sure she would beat her but not with such a scoreline. A very impressive win, Beygelzimer even slumping is a tough opponent, she is still 238th. Bravo!

People in GM complain that no 1991 are coming up in ranking, but they are clearly overlooking Simona. With 2 ITFs won already, she should have a decent rank at the end of the tournament. I am sure that she will be in top 300 before the seasons ends. Let's go Simona!!

You were right because she took the title on a 76 63 victory :D. Very strong results lately, too bad there is not a WTA event in Romania because I'm sure she could have even better wins. It's just that her rank doesn't allow her to participate in higher tournies, we have to be patient.
Winning a junior GS would be the best thing to do actually, so let's go in Roland-Garros!

An article about Simona available on RG's website:


Girls' singles: Halep the princess of Roland Garros

Sunday, June 8, 2008
By Eric Frosio & Jenny Aitken



A final accelerated forehand and Simona Halep throws down her racquet and cries with joy! Just time for a consolatory hug with her opponent before she seizes her mobile phone to break the news to her family, who stayed behind in Romania. After missing two match points in the second set, at 5-4 on her service, she had to really fight for an extra half hour before finding another way to finish her opponent off.

"I panicked a little”

At 5-2 on her serve in the third set, the blonde youngster showed a determination way beyond her 16 years to seal the deal on the title which was within her reach. “I don’t know how I pushed through to win,” Halep says, after finishing off her opponent Elena Bogdan, another Romanian, 6-4 6-7 6-2. “When I missed two match points in the second and went on to lose the set, I panicked a little. I was tired, my morale was down and I don’t know how, but some force finally pushed me to go through and win the match.”
Her strong point is undoubtedly her ability to accelerate on her forehand. She also has a winner’s mentality. Liviu Panait’s protégé, who was already a semi-finalist in the Australian Open, first starting knocking a ball about at only 4 years of age but is already dreaming of making it into the top ten, “as long as she works hard for six hours per day over the next three years,” adds Ion Tirac, who kept a close eye on this all-Romanian final

Ion Tirac’s advice
"This young girl has good movement and hits the ball well. But this alone is not enough to get to the top,” the expert predicted. “She'll have to work very hard and above all have a good team to support her. I hope that this will be the case because it is time that our good junior players become good pros.”
"I know he’s talking sense. I really believe that winning Roland Garros could be a turning point in my career," said Halep. "I know that a lot of young Romanian juniors have not gone on to become great players, but I think that I can make that happen.” With outstanding self-belief, she already sees herself following in the footsteps of an illustrious predecessor. “Andreï Pavel, my idol, won the juniors in 1992 before making a fantastic name for himself on the pro circuit. I hope that I will be able to emulate his success.”

Iceland

Good luck Simona.

For Romanians, is Simi s nickname for Simona in Romania? I remember Simonar Amanar's teammates calling her Simi during the Olympics.

Yeah, Simi is ok, but especially Simo. Depends on what she prefers. :p

Simona lost :( she won the second set 6-1 but lost the third set 4-6. Really hope she will win something big soon, possibly a 50K or 75K so that she can start playing wta tournaments next season.

Where has Simona been for the past two months? I guess she might have played the maximum number of tournaments she can play between her 16th and 17th birthday? I don't know the details of the restriction rule but I will assume that is it. She turned 17 though last month and hasn't played any tournaments.

That definitely isn't it, since under AER a player can play up to 13 tournaments between her 16th and 17th birthday and Simona has only played 9.

The list on the ITF site must be quite outdated. Meddens was the #14 player on the Q list there but is the #1 seed in the actual draw. Simona must have been moved into the main draw. ;)

$50K Minsk QD:

(3)Kristina Antoniychuk (UKR) v Syna Kayser (GER)
Marta Sirotkina (RUS) v Anna Brazhnikova (SWE)
Nadejda Guskova (RUS) v (wc)Viktoria Yemialyanava (BLR)
Anna Smith (GBR) v (8)Simona Halep (ROU)

If she is one-hundred percent, she should have no problems with this draw. However that is quite a big if...
