I was crying, only for a few minutes. Then I said, 'I had to be happy', it was my first final and I really gave everything I had in the final.

She will emerge stronger from this. Great attitude.

Bartoli was right.
And she will have more time against Simona, who will not play like Bouchard, stepping inside the court and trying to work out winners. So I think Maria will feel less pressed by her opponent. Muguruza was the same. I think [Maria] will have more time and that will help her to feel more relaxed. So I will favour Maria.”

That's the next big step. Step inside the court more and more and more. If you don't do that, the only way you'll go from #3 is down to #4, #5, #6, then back to #3, etc..
You've got to change it... You can do it !!!

Would someone care to translate this? It sounds juicy. I think it says something about her having a relationship with her former coach Andrei Mlendea and her father ended it.

Not really worthy of any attention. Seems like a shady character.
Looks like he's after financial gain.

I wonder how can people say that she has no personality? she is just so damn lovable

That's why I'm pretty amazed too!
I mean, she doesn't usually smash rackets on the pitch, but from there to she has not personality it's a bit far!
Well, each with his own opinions, but I hope she stays like she is now !

Re: » Simona's News/Articles/Interviews «

The hardest thing to cope with is that Simona was so close to the win. 2-1 up with 2 break points in the 3rd, later even serving for 5-4.

Total points won was very close indeed, Maria had more winners, but Simona had less errors, in fact her game was more graceful, yet precise, while Maria's was sheer aggression, coupled with endless mind games (grunting turned up to shrieking; turning her back at Simona when she wanted to serve and taking minutes between serves; that endless toilet break).

Simona was only inches away from the title. But she gained a lot in the end: millions of new fans of her quiet determination, endearing demeanor and elegant game, and recognition as a major contender for future Grand Slam wins.

No more talk of hype or fluke - Simona is the real deal!

Re: » Simona's News/Articles/Interviews «

idd. There is so much good and positive signs for Simona for the future that even this loss in the final is just another step for her progress . She can improve , and she is day by day closer and closer to beat Maria, she knows that she can improve and knowing her determination she will, she will be hungry for more , more determined especially at GS and we know that even when she doesn`t play a GS she`s there giving 100%.

I only pray that she will remain healthy and enjoy us with her beautiful tennis that she has. I can`t be more proud of her , of what a great person she is , great mentality and what a challenger will become for the 3 divas. She`s made a step further , she is the next big thing in tennis and the best thing that could happen in the WTA .

I got a feeling that RG will be won someday , but i`m sure that she`s better on hard courts and she will be the challenger this year on a second GS in US.
