Simona Halep (1991-) Romanian Tennis Player, and Two-Time World Number One in Singles


Recommended Posts

My wife didn’t believe me when I said (yes, BEFORE the match) that Halep was going to win.

In the post-match interview, Simona Halep thanked (among others) Ion Țiriac, who most people reading this have never heard of: Țiriac is also Romanian, and used to play with Nastase - more interestingly, he's the single richest sports personality in the entire world. Really.

Tiriac was fun to watch.  He looked scary.  Apparently, he still does.

I also had bet on Halep, but didn’t expect essentially a flawless performance. 3 unforced errors all match. 3!


I was trying to think of someone else her style of play reminded me of, and the first person who came to mind was Justine Henin (I'm not saying that's right or wrong; only that it's the first person who came to mind).

Interestingly, Halep's idols growing up were Federer and Henin.
