Iga Swiatek b Simona Halep 6-1 6-2

In short, what sadly happened today was IMO the result of professional negligence on Cahill's and Simona Halep's part to do the required due diligence on a day when the opponent played inspired tennis, fuelled by the thirst for revenge:

- a failure to properly scout the opponent, who displayed exactly the arsenal in the previous match, with Bouchard
- a failure to evaluate the coming encounter, to prepare a plan B, and to execute it
- a failure to see that continuing to feed Swiatek high topspin balls serves her preference of attacking such balls or dropshot her; Halep did not execute perhaps even a slice, meant to lower the trajectory of the balls, to take Swiatek off her routine
- a failure to be prepped to execute aggressive returns
- a failure to improve Halep's 2nd serve, which becomes critical against power players
- a failure to be pumped up: Simona seemed quite indifferent to the developments on the court

Instead, what seemed to have been present was an overall dismissal of the opponent before the match, caused by the results of the previous encounters.

Este un eșec complet pentru Simona, care se pregătea exclusiv pentru turul de mini teren de lut și mai ales pentru Roland Garros.
Fiind principalul favorit pentru a-l câștiga, este de neconceput și inacceptabil să pierzi în modul în care jucătorul român și-a luat rămas bun de la Paris.
După cum spui, există greșeli de neiertat pentru ea și Cahill pentru că și-au subestimat tânărul rival.
A fost, fără îndoială, o mare oportunitate ratată pentru Halep de a câștiga un nou GS în cariera ei.
Și în fiecare an șansele ei de a reuși în turneele majore vor scădea.
