Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Very good draw in my opinion to start off the season. Keys as well as Hantuchova match up pretty well with Simona's gamestyle and I expect her to beat both without any problems.

But then again the start of the year usually serves some random results or unexpected turnarounds. I hope, though, that she really enjoyed a good off-season preparation and is now healthy and hungry for more wins.

Not the luckiest draw for our girl, but I hope she can make it. Good luck, Simona!

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

It doesn't seem an easy draw when you compare it to the other women in the draw. Would Halep prefer to play a qualifier, or someone like Keys? Granted that Keys is coming off a loss, while a qualifier may likely be coming off some wins (the Sydney qualie is tough!), but I wonder about how random it all is -- Anyway, good luck Halep!

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

As we all know, the real WTA season doesn't start until Simona walks on court, hunts in her bag for her hairband and then places it carefully on her head.

So, just to build up a bit for Sunday and because I'm a bit of a stats nerd, I thought it would be nice for us to revel in her stats from last season. Some are well known, others are ones I worked out myself. Sorry I don't know how some of them compare to other players around her ranking but I imagine they're pretty favourable for her (especially since they only cover 'new' Simona ) I know stats can't tell us everything but I think there's some interesting things to be gleaned from them.

SINCE MADRID IN 2013:

53 matches with 45-8 record (0.849)

SIMONA WILL GO FAR!

Deep runs at 9 of her 14 tournaments - 6 titles, 1 SF (lost to Serena), 1 QF (lost to Serena) & R4 of the US Open

SIMONA BELONGS IN THE TOP 10

4-3 against Top 10 players (4-1 against Top 10 players not named Serena!)
11-1 against players ranked 11 to 20
6-0 against players ranked 21 to 30

Against Top 30 overall: 21-4 (21-2 against Top 30 players not named Serena)

15-4 against higher-ranked players (15-2 against higher-ranked players not named Serena)
30-4 against lower-ranked players

"I AM NORMAL GIRL AND I LIKE TO FIGHT!"
(New Haven, 2013 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urQ4eZ3_eDQ question starting at 3:01)

Simona lost the first set 14 times but came back to win the match 9 times (2 of those 5 losses to Serena). In every one of those 9 wins she went on to win in style, losing a total of 6 games or less in the last two sets.

ONCE SIMONA GETS HER NOSE IN FRONT ...

She won the first set 39 times and went on to lose just 3 matches from that position (to Suarez Navarro, Venus & Pennetta (in Bastad - Simona retired))

SIMONA, THE DOMINANT ONE

In 8 out of 25 matches against Top 30 players, she gave away 6 games or less (32%)

In 17 out of 28 matches against players ranked below the Top 30, she gave away 6 games or less (61%)

Simona won 6-2 or better in 56 of the 121 full sets she played (46%).
Against Top 30 players she won 6-2 or better in 25 of 60 full sets played (42%)

Trips To The Bakery

In 121 full sets of tennis since Madrid (97 won, 24 lost):

Simona plated up a tasty bagel 7 times (to Jankovic, Kirilenko, Vinci, Balducci, Min, Karatantcheva & Peterson)
Simona delivered a crispy breadstick 27 times (if you want the complete list I still have it - just let me know)
Simona was bageled herself 4 times (2 by Serena, 1 by Safarova, 1 by Li Na)
Simona was breadsticked herself ... Not once! Zero, nada, zilch!

SIMONA, BE CAREFUL IN THOSE TIEBREAKERS!

Possibly the least impressive of Simona's stats since Madrid ...
She has played 11 tiebreakers, going 'just' 6-5 in them.

SIMONA'S A WINNER!

Best & current winning streaks:
11 matches (June)
9 matches (Oct/Nov) and counting ...

THE RETURN OF SIMONA!

Simona won 50.8% of her return games - 3rd best on the WTA in the whole of 2013
Simona converted 55.4% of her break points - 2nd best on the WTA in the whole of 2013

Top 10 wins:
Radwanska #4 6-7, 6-1, 6-2
Bartoli #7 3-6, 6-4, 6-1
Wozniacki #8 6-2, 7-5
Kvitova #9 6-2, 6-2

Top 20 wins:
Vinci #15 6-4, 6-2
Jankovic #18 4-6, 6-0, 7-5
Vinci #11 6-0, 6-1
Suarez Navarro #19 6-3, 6-2
Flipkens #20 6-4, 6-2
Stosur #11 6-4, 4-6, 6-2
Suarez Navarro #20 3-6, 6-4, 6-1
Kirilenko #17 6-1, 6-0
Stosur #19 7-6, 6-2
Ivanovic #16 2-6, 6-1, 6-3
Stosur #18 2-6, 6-2, 6-2

Top 30 wins:
Safarova #30 6-3, 0-6, 6-2
Makarova #26 6-1, 7-6
Pavlyuchenkova #29 3-6, 7-6, 3-0 RET
Pavlyuchenkova #30 6-2, 6-1
Pavlyuchenkova #26 6-3, 6-3
Cornet #27 6-4, 6-4

Top 10 losses:
Serena #1 3-6, 0-6
Li Na #6 2-6, 6-1, 0-6
Serena #1 0-6, 4-6

Top 20 losses:
Suarez Navarro #20 6-3, 2-6, 2-6

2013 UP TO ROME:

17 matches: 8-9 Win-Loss record

Even though we like to avoid talking about Simona's 2013 results before Rome, they are not as bad as her 8-9 record might seem. Every player she lost to was ranked higher than her at the time, she beat all opponents ranked lower than her and 2 of her 8 wins were against higher-ranked players (Lisicki #37 & Paszek #31, both at Miami when Simona was ranked #57).

6-0 against lower-ranked players
2-9 against higher-ranked players (5 of 9 losses were to Top 20 players; Simona ranked between 47 and 64 at the time)
