    Great hope Halep - How far now?

    Apparently Simona has a serious problem with her foot. It seems to be worse than she thought and apparently she will have to rest her foot for a month. This means skipping Indian Wells (not that she has many points to defend). Ion Tiriac, president of the Romanian Tennis Federation - an...

    Thanks Marius. Great highlights, nothing like the WTA ones, you can actually get a good grasp on the match. Simona played appallingly. So many balls in the net, no power at all in her strokes! Had Jabeur not had so many UE, she would have certainly won. I can't help thinking that the problem...

    Great hope Halep - How far now?

    Marius, wouldn't you say the time has come to change the title of the thread? At 28, Simona is hardly a hope anymore. She is more of a hope (partly) come true, with 2 slams and various other titles...

    Great hope Halep - How far now?

    That is quite interesting, Marius; Simona's post-Wimbledon loss of form analysed, some things explained. On a lighter note, according to Romanian press, Simona is to marry shady boyfriend next year, after the USO. He is 13 years older than her and has been married before. Twice...

    Nadal News 2.0

    Hi everybody. I am new here. Since no one has mentioned it (and I have seen similar photos from last year on this thread), I thought to insert some photos from the draw ceremony with lovely Simona Halep. She tweeted "You have to win Roland Garros to get a photo with the king of clay" (I read...
