Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Anyone remember Simona playing Clijsters in Brisbane 2012? That was a tournament with pretty weird results. I mean, a Hantuchova - Kanepi final?

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

^I do, yes. Clijsters won 6-2 6-4 I think?

And it wouldn't have been as weird if the final was Clijsters vs Kanepi. Kim retired in the semi's after winning the 1st set vs Dani IIRC..

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Why do all of my faves seem to fire their coaches at the most unexpected times? Sabine fired Wim Fissette after he helped her reach the Wimbledon finals and now I think she is having a hard time finding a coach. (She also fired Ricardo Sanchez and had a temporary arrangement with Robert Orlek earlier in the year) Why would a coach want to coach a player where there is little job security and success is rewarded like this?

Hopefully Simona won't have this problem, but with all of the success she had with Marcu the other coaches must be scratching their heads just like us. Simona is proabably one of the players who can best get along without a coach as Marcu rarely made on-court visits and Simona was able to make adjustments herself. But my philosphy with something like this is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." I just hope this doesn't end her momentum going into next season.

I think Wim Fissette is a great choice for Simona. He worked well with Kim, should work for Simona too. Anyway, even though he wasn't a player, he is a coach with great results. I think I'm the only person content with her decision.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Simona is fully aware of the fact that she has barely anything to defend in the first couple of months next year - that's probably also a reason why she chooses to experiment and look how things turn out.

I wish her all the best, and let's be honest, it looks as if she has stabilized on a level that should be enough to beat at least any significantly lower ranked player only due to her consistency alone.

She knows that as well and hopes to find a new coach or new impulses that will bring her even further.

I like her approach and I think it's suiting her style. She seems very determined and she seems she knows what she wants and how to get there, so it's a good thing if she focuses only toward that goal, without unnecessary distractions. She's an interesting girl, that's for sure.
Yes, she is one of the few players left who seem to be all-business. It's admirable in these days to do your own thing.

Nope, I'm actually really glad she took this decision, Marcu has nothing in his CV to show that he can handle the task of coaching a future top 10 player. I still think Mlendea is the one that helped Simona with her confidence, Marcu's on-court coaching sessions always had the opposite of the desired effect.

No, thanks. You've had Myskina, Safina, Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Zvonareva etc. It's time for us to have a solid top 10 player

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Well done Simona!

Most Improved Player Of The Year: Simona

It all started with an incredible run in the Eternal City and now, six months later, she's on the brink of the Top 10 - Simona Halep is the WTA's Most Improved Player Of The Year for 2013.

Published November 21, 2013 12:05

CONSTANTA, Romania - It all started with an incredible run in the Eternal City and now, six months later, she's on the brink of the Top 10 - Simona Halep is the WTA's Most Improved Player Of The Year.

For years, Halep had been touted as a future star - a Grand Slam champion and World No.1 in juniors, buckets of talent, even three WTA finals to her name between 2010 and 2012. But she never quite got that one big result - that big breakthrough that gave anyone proof she'd make it just as big in the pros.

Going into the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in May, Halep was still stuck in that place. In her first nine WTA main draws of 2013 she put together a 7-9 record, which - combined with her 5-11 record in her last 11 WTA main draws of 2012 - added up to winning just 12 of her last 32 WTA main draw matches.

Boy, did things turn around in Rome.

As a No.64-ranked qualifier, Halep went on the kind of run that turns a pretender into a believer, beating four of the game's biggest names - Svetlana Kuznetsova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Roberta Vinci and Jelena Jankovic - before finally running out of gas against Serena Williams in the semifinals.

"It was an incredible week for me," Halep said after falling to Williams that day. "I feel good that I'm No.44 now. It's difficult to think about how high I can go now, because it's hard work and every week it's difficult for every player, so I just have to keep going and working and we'll see what happens."

What happened was an absolute breakthrough six months - including that run in Rome, Halep went 43-8 in her last 14 WTA main draws of the year, winning her first six WTA titles at Nürnberg, 's-Hertogenbosch, Budapest, New Haven, Moscow and Sofia, and finishing at No.11 on the November 4 year-end rankings.

"I want to enjoy this moment and then take some holidays, and just relax," Halep said after capturing the title in Sofia. "Hopefully I can play next year like I played this year and do well in Australia."

All eyes should be on Halep's ranking in Australia - she's just a few hundred points away from the No.10-ranked player in the world and, with little to defend in the first four months of the year, she looks like the best bet to become the next player to break into the Top 10 for the first time.

That could be big news in Romania - only two Romanians have ever made the Top 10 on the WTA, namely Virginia Ruzici, who made it to No.8, and Irina Spirlea, who got to No.7. How high can Halep go?

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Top 3 Simona's matches in 2013 - from the level of her play in my opinion

1. 7-6; 6-2 ag S. Stosur - Moscow F (both players played Top5 game, the first set being of amazing quality)
2. 6-0; 6-1 ag R. Vinci - Holland Q
3. 6-7; 6-1; 6-2 ag A. Radwanska - Rome R32

PS: Moved from press thread
