I thought that tweet was odd because I think Courtney really likes Simona. I felt she was just stirring the pot. Even still, it didn't sit well with me.

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

http://espn.go.com/blog/peter-bodo/p...ts-of-february

This article by Bodo seems pretty condescending. For example:

"Simona Halep, who’s grown proficient at cleaning up at smaller events, bagged the most prestigious title on offer with a succession of quality wins in Dubai over Ekaterina Makarova, Caroline Wozniacki and, in the final, Karolina Pliskova."

"Even among mice, quality will tell."

Someone needs to remind Peter how many big titles Genie has won so far.

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

Dunno if he dislikes her. But the gist of the article is February is the month for the lesser players to shine. I know Serena and Maria didn't play Dubai, but I don't consider it a 'smaller event'. It's the biggest tournament between the AO and IW.
And Bodo is definitely a Genie fan. He claimed she had the greatest breakout season since Hingis. That's an absurd statement to make.

I the article you posted he's absolutely condescending.
And a jerk. Especially when he says: "Simona Halep, who’s grown proficient at cleaning up at smaller events".

This shows again, unfortunately, that Simona will never be seen as a legitimate top player unless she'll win a slam. Even then, if it happens, it will be because Eugenie was hurt or that particular slam was not enough.
So, minimum two.
It's unfair because nobody seems to ask a slam from Caro, Aga or the likes.

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

Bodo is a Genie fanboy. I don't concern myself with his analyses. (and I'm no longer of the opinion that Genie has the game to trouble Simona - not unless she grows a lot - like a lot a lot)

ESPN has really sorry tennis coverage. I think most TF posters could write better articles, which is really saying something.

Quoting my own post, because I realized something. Officially, Simona had the greatest breakout season since Steffi Graf when she won her first 6 titles in 2013. But she didn't go deep in the slams til last year, and more importantly to ESPN, she's not tall and blonde.
And yes, it looks like the doubters are now gonna start calling Simona the Ferrer of the WTA. Racking up smaller titles, but not good enough to beat the top players. I hope she proves them wrong many times over.

I think we don't need the legitimacy from anyone , As fans we want our favourite to do her best .. Haters and the blind fans of other players will never give Simona the credit she deserves .. And tbh the world is bigger than US , I think Simona is appreciated well in European Media . ِAnd in middle east also she got big praising in the media after Doha and Dubai wins ... She has fans here and many Americans and Asians loves her too .. I think that's enough .. Anyway I don't want a big noise around her , I don't want her to be Bouchard or Sharapova or something close

This guy is a tennis coach, not a writer, but still he comes up with something amusing and somewhat interesting:
