MEET SIMONA HALEP
Simona Halep is an interesting mix of different tennis styles, personalities, reactions, interests. You never know quite what you are going to get from her. Her fleet-footed game is a joy to watch and yet occasionally erratic. She can explode with emotion on court, both positive and negative. She can look full of self-belief and then surprisingly short of it. It’s a combination that makes her fascinating to follow, and difficult to face as an opponent. A top five player for the last three years, Halep has been as high as No.2 in the world at her peak, and she still has plenty of time left. She added the experienced Australian coach Darren Cahill to her support team in 2016, and said he could be the final piece of the jigsaw in her pursuit of the sport’s biggest honours. Halep was the first female Tie Break Tens champion after she defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova in a gripping final in Madrid last year.
‘Tie-breaks are always tense, and with so many top players playing them in Tie Break Tens, it is going to be a great night in Madrid.’
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
There is not a tennis player in the world quicker around the court than Simona Halep. That ability to reach tennis balls can get inside the head of an opponent in tense moments.
Similarly, when Halep gets to a tennis ball, no matter how hard it has been hit at her, she has the ability to turn a point around. It gives her a big advantage in a tie-break.
Sometimes Halep’s lack of consistency can be a problem, but the streakiness of her form can make her a formidable force in a short sprint to a finish-line – i.e. a tie-break.
