Romanian tennis player Simona Halep appreciated her start to the tournament in Dubai.
“Bouchard played great. I served great and in some draws I moved very well. I am confident and feel good on the court even if I get tired. It’s always difficult to resist Bouchard because she plays close to the back line and quickly takes the ball. I tried move it as far as possible. When I had the opportunity, I played aggressively and completed the draws in my favor.
The match with Tsurenko will be different, because I’m a little tired. Tsurenko plays differently. It does not act so quickly, but very accurately sends the ball. I will have a hard time. It will be necessary to move, to run a lot. Let’s see how I feel. I hope I can recover well enough to win, “the Tour press service quotes Simona.
