Halep - Clay/Grass Titles In Successive Weeks

How many people have ever done that before? Or is it unique? Navratilova followed up her RG triumphs with wins at Eastbourne, but that was a fortnight later. I don't believe that Evert ever did it. It is so unusual to have a clay and grass tournament within a week of each other, so is Halep's achievement unique on the WTA? I admit that I haven't done heaps of research and maybe several people did it in "the old days" when grass court tourneys were normal. Also, this was Nurnberg and s'Hertogenbosch, hardly the world's toughest tournaments, but regardless, this is an amazing achievement.

And she's much more confident in her game. Her new coach did miracles in just a few weeks.

She is playing more with margin and construction than brainless tennis.

Very simple my Scottish friend
A NEW COACH - Andrei Mlandea !!
Its like magic when the chemistry works !


she is an AMAZING NEW player now. NO UNFORCED ERRORS. Maybe 2-3 in a match.
I hope she keeps it but we are all humans

She has that Federer/Henin touch!... she thinks on every ball! she does not take any risks.
Unbelievable change and I watch a lot of sports, not just tennis.
