Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Relax people, relax. Halep had a slow start. That's all.
She looks miserable until 1-5 in the 2nd set.
Then the real Halep showed up. And we all know, when she starts going, she is D.A.N.G.E.R.O.U.S.

I'll say Keys escaped narrowly. Didn't you see Keys getting worried, calling up her coach??? She knew she was in big trouble.

Halep was back in the match. She was playing well again. She was playing the game we all like. She had a break point for 5-All. Then, bad luck, with the ball hitting the frame. Those things happen.

I think she will be fine in AO. It took her a while to find her game. But she is here now.

Coach or no coach, I am not worried after seeing her last 3 games, from 1-5 in the second. She'll continue from there in Melbourne.

Cheer up folks. The house is not on fire.
Go Halep !!! Let's take Melbourne by storm !!!!!

By the way, did you enter your End-of-the Year top-10 in the Contest? Time is running out. You got a few hours to enter your Predictions here:

Good luck. Let's go to Melbourne cheer up Halep !!!!

If he is the same as in Sydney, he is her physiotherapist. If not, he is a sparring that Simona had at that time.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Terrible, unfortunately. 61 50 at some point. I know her name starts with a "H", but it's Halep and not Houdini, and at 61 50 only Houdini could have avoided the inevitable.

Most likely we'll see a lot of matches like the one with Keys in this season. A lot of players must be aware by now that she is tough (so she must be feared), but she isn't unbreakable (and they'll try to shake her game and confidence). Simona is a great girl and lands a hand by going on court unprepared & coach-less. Hope she will come back to her senses quickly though.

99% the one in the blue shirt (bald, tall, young) is the sparring partner . The thing with the 16 y.o B. Borza was just for a day or something.

And most likely ,the older guy in white that sat near the 99% sparring partner yesterday is her physiotherapist. (as she said a few days ago she would travel only with these 2 persons for now)


Too much dispute over her "team" . It's not like it's about a coach or something more important.

. Let's hope for the best and hope that this match was only a mistake. I want at least Round of 16 at the AO

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

It`s like a bad dream and I can`t wake up Just kidding ! C`mon people, this is a cheering thread, not a funeral, Simona can`t forget how to play tennis in 2 months ! This was the first game after a long rest, but she`ll came back stronger than ever ! Maybe not in Australia but I bet until Paris we will see the Simona that we all love and support ! Let`s not forget that she only win one time in the last 5 years her first match after the NYE ! Peace !

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

The guy in the blue shirt is her sparring partner. She is her sparring partner since Moscow I believe. I have no idea who the guy in white shirt is though...

The problem was the game, overall. The serve needs improvement, she is not going to improve it without a coach. She needs someone good, she is the only coachless player at this level.

Thanks to NeKo and others earlier for the info. The guy in white was her coach at the time, Adrian Marcu (the pic is from Sofia).

No, not Marcu. There was also a guy in a white shirt in her box during her match against Keys, sitting next to her sparring partner. With sun glasses, for one moment I thought she found a coach...but I guess he is her fitness coach.

No, that was her sparing partner from back there when she was coached by Mr. Marcu.

The one that was in the Sydney stands is the same from Moscow and Sofia (only he had sunglasses) !! But does it really matter !?

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

No, I was just curious that's all. It's nice to know who these people on Simona's team are.

Thanks to everyone for their input regarding my question.

Really? We're all fans of Simona here, but let's not kid ourselves, Simona was plain awful the entire match. During those 4 games that she won in the 2nd set, Keys was just hitting one UE after the other. The stats don't lie, Simona only managed 6 winners in 17 games, 32 UE's and only held serve twice in the match, mindblowing numbers. I think there was a combination of reasons that lead to this, it was her first match of the season, she couldn't immediately adjust to the extremely fast surface in Australia or to the high temperatures there etc. But we can't use those things as excuses for her lose, she played really badly and she lost, that's it. She just needs to play a lot better at the AO, if she manages that, the result will be a deep run there.

I think CheddarChomper has a point, not only Simona's game was way off, also her on court behaviour was completely different compared to her matches from last year. To me, that just shows something was wrong with her psyche, she just wasn't in the zone. I'm pretty sure she will look much better in her next match. I like the fact she is also playing doubles here, she needs as many matches under her belt as possible before the AO.

I am surprised to see people here unware of the fact that Adrian Marcu was unable to travel anymore with Simona at tournaments, therefore he was no longer an appropriate coach for her. And, tbh, he wasn't all that great anyway, his past results as a coach were extremely unimpressive. But Simona should have hired a new coach, one with a very good CV that would help her to improve her game and her ranking even more. But still, being coachless couldn't have possibly caused such a big fall in her game.
