Romanian tennis player Simona Halep commented on reaching the semifinal of the tournament in Miami.
“I now learned from the coach that I need another victory to return to the first line. I am glad that I found myself in that position again. This gives me confidence, because after the first two months of the season I didn’t believe that I would be so soon is close. This is a big test, but I like to play, feeling pressure. I hope tomorrow I will show my best tennis. Every day in the first place is special. If I manage to become the first racket of the world tomorrow, I will be proud of it. When I arrived for this tournament, I didn’t think about the odds with This goal seemed far away, I didn’t even want to think about it, but now there is only one game left, and I’m ready to talk about it, because this way I will feel more pressure. It’s a challenge, but there’s nothing wrong with that. I became stronger than before.In the last couple of years I have lost not so many matches due to negativity.Today for five games I felt negative, but I could change the situation and tried to play with a positive attitude. It worked. My last defeats were due to the fact that I played not the best way. Psychologically, everything is fine.
Darren Cahill always tried to instill a positive attitude in me. Previously, I always showed negative sides, this is my nature. But after one of the defeats, he told me that I myself made it so that I suffer alone, and that is why I lose. He noted that I was showing great tennis. I want to thank him again for that moment. He changed everything in my head and pressed the right button. When I feel that I play well, I relax. I get more pleasure from staying on the court, it gives confidence, and I can hold beautiful jokes, like today with a backhand kick. I am beginning to feel joy on the court, and this is the most important thing for me, “the Tour press service quotes Halep.
