Romanian tennis player Simona Halep told about her defeat in the quarterfinal of the competition in Dubai.
“I even try to extract positive moments from defeat. Anyway, I did some great fights in Dubai. I play at a high level, I feel physically good. However, it’s not easy every day. I felt tired, and after the second game I started cramps. Achilles also began to hurt, and this prevented me from serving normally. In the last meeting I had a pain in my left leg. I’m not making excuses, it’s just that all these facts show that I’m tired. These were three very cool, albeit difficult weeks.
Nevertheless, I am confident in my abilities on the eve of the following tournaments. Bencic acted in an aggressive manner. At the first opportunity I tried to attack. In addition, she played great on the pitch. In general, Belinda can do everything on the court. Of course, I did not stop the fight, although I realized that I probably would not have enough strength to win. Now comes only the second month of the year. I am in second place in the rankings and enjoy the moment. I will try to rise above, “the WTA press service quotes Halep as saying.
