Yeah, no one seems to be on.

Go Simona, win Madrid! Or at least arrange a match up with Serena

Last point was absolutely hilarious. I would have broken my racquet on the spot.

I only saw the first set. Simona completely disappeared in the middle of it. I'm glad she got a straights win in the end.

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

Not much to say, some good serving from Simona (that's a rare thing from my point of view) , bad performance overall!
She must do better next match!

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

Halep played the match point with her broken racquet strings

Overall an ugly match, ups and downs, mostly downs. Arruabarrena fought hard, Halep played the important points very well, but she needs to play at a higher level if she wants to reach the semifinals. And yes, very good serving.

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4


(via @livetennis)

9 aces

First set could've been a bit easier but I won't complain about a straight sets win. Definitely has some room for improvement though.

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

A decent performance from Simona today, but she won as a top player was supposed to do in a bad day. She does had a game where she hit 4 Aces from an total of 9.

Arruabarrena had a good clay performance( she has a complete clay game) and, probably if she didn't had to play with a good clay opponent she would pass this round. Good luck further.

Re: Madrid R2: Halep def. Arruabarrena 6-4 6-4

Very patchy by Simona but credit to Lara for sticking in after the lightning start by Simona. Please improve for the rest of the tourney, Simona.

2nd game of the 2nd set - 4 points won by Simona to win the game, 4 aces!

Wow!
Quite surprised she can do that.
I mean, 9 aces, it's Serena like, no?
