Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2
Yes, it did seem a strange decision to deliberately go it alone for however long. But maybe she felt constricted by having a coach all year? Wasn't there something said at the time she parted ways with Adrian Marcu - something like she wants to improve her self-reliance and confidence in herself by trying it alone for a while?
Did you notice at the match yesterday they showed 2 men in the crowd? It was only very quick for 1 or 2 seconds. On BT Sport the commentator said they were Simona's team. In the brief glance we got I didn't immediately recognise them. I'm not sure if one of them was her hitting partner - isn't he the young guy that sat next to Marcu at Sofia and other tournaments? Perhaps he is doing a semi-coaching role as well as being her hitting partner?
