I've watched her in a few matches only this year, the last of them being in Moscow tournament. I wouldn't call the ball she hits "heavy", at least not the same overpowering ball that true hitters like Maria and Kvitova hit. She's fast though, but so are plenty of other players of her size (Kirilenko, Pennetta and etc). Her biggest issue is her serve, and that's where her limitations are the most obvious - the likes of Maria and Vika will always feed on weak serves and being of such small stature won't help Halep either. But if folks want to claim she will be great, good for them. I'm personally very skeptical about small girls and their chances in today's game, but maybe romanian will prove me wrong and do a Henin someday
