Re: Rome R2: Vondrousova exposes Simona Halep once again 2-6 7-5 6-3
The "Queen of Clay" gets completely schooled by a 19-year old, again. I continue to be amazed Simona has ever been a relevant player when she has no real tennis skills. All she can do is grind, and she can't even do that very well, since she's always "tired" or "injured". Of course her fanbase is ready with the excuses about playing 2 matches in a day. Just the prospect of it was too much for Simona, coming off a long week in Madrid. I guess that's why Bertens lost her first match too. Wait...
And now we get to hear about how Rome doesn't matter. It's all about Paris. LOL
Regardless of her draw, Simona's not getting past the 4th round. The odds of her facing a good player in the first four rounds who can expose her nothing game are extremely high. Also, she's due for another first round flop (Already has more than twice as many as any other top-5 player), and she'll easily crack under the pressure of defending a Slam title. Might as well create the thread now about the defending RG champ losing in the first round two years in a row.
