Romanian tennis player Simona Halep shared her impressions of the victory over German Julia Goerges in the quarterfinal of the Doha tournament, and also spoke about expectations from the opposition with Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.
“I didn’t think about the third game. I wanted to finish everything in two sets. Even when the opponent had set points, I continued the fight and believed in the final success. I tried not to lose the legs, because Julia punched very hard, directing the balls to different corners of the court. Glad to have won such a hard fight.
In meetings with Elina, it was always difficult for me. We played twice in the finals of the competition in Rome, and both times I was defeated. Those failures really upset me. Now I will try to take revenge. I will fight for every ball and give all my strength on the court, “the WTA press service quotes Halep as saying.
