And if trying her best only got her one game today, oh boy...

Wow what a result
Seems to be in great form, please continue that way! I hope she won't be too tired for Wimbledon though.

Usually a player screws up a match if she plays almost immediately after winning a trophy. Even if something happens it's amazing what she did already, defeating Beck after no rest and destroying Vinci after a day and a half rest.And she didn't even look to stressed during the match, just confident and relaxed.

I wonder if she was just being nice or if she really meant it?

If you ask me, I wouldn't mind an early exit in Wimbledon if she wins here. How much energy can she have?

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I failed to see her again, but as shown by the score, I imagine that played very well. Simo and good luck.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I would definitely love seeing her winning this tournament as well.

There are so many walking byes in the Wimbledon draw that she maybe still snatch a win in R1. You can't always be that unlucky with your GS draws.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Simona today was confident and believed she could win...she finally is clicking and I think she can really do great on this surface if she stays as confident and athletically well

Vinci didn't play that well to be honest, but you don't bagel and breadsticks one of the best grass players out there if you can't play well!

Re: Simona Halep (România)

I can't get over the fact how good her second serve became all of a sudden. It's one of the best of the game at the moment.

Yes I was like "OMG" when she made these aces. Her serve really improved.

Re: Simona Halep (România)

Watched the full match now and have to agree with the guys who said she didn't even play that well. Still, being solid from the baseline was enough today as Roberta was just plain awful for most of it. Her serving is really good though.

One of the highlights was that fail of an overrule on a 1st serve which was way in on which she replied by hitting an ace straight after.

Wow, Simona completely rewrote the book and brushed Roberta clear off the stage

Now plays very lucky loser Lesia, who Simona is 2-0 against. This is their first meeting on grass.
