Romanian tennis player Simona Halep shared her impressions of her victory in the third round of the Eastbourne tournament.
“The fight turned out to be very difficult. I understood that the opponent would punch hard. Today her forehand worked very efficiently. The serve was good too. It was not easy for me to act at the reception. I tried to be as close as possible to the back line and work with my legs.
I tried to play aggressively, it is better to open the court and not give my opponent the opportunity to attack. In the course of the meeting, I had problems, especially in the second game. However, I coped with difficulties and this will help me overcome them at Wimbledon. I will be ready to make adjustments to the game even without a coach, because their access to the court is prohibited there.
After winning the “major” I changed. Otherwise, she began to look at the game, at tournaments. Now my goal is to simply demonstrate my best tennis and have fun. I have no lack of motivation, but the result does not put pressure on me as it used to, “the WTA press service quotes Simona.
Also, Romanian spoke about the expectations of the confrontation with the German Angelique Kerber.
“I did not have the opportunity to watch her matches here, but I know that she likes to play on the grass. What can I say – she won Wimbledon last year! However, I have nothing to lose. I want to go to the court and show my maximum. I want to win but I do not put this at the forefront. I just want to play well, “added Halep.
