Romanian Simona Halep commented on her defeat by Czech Marketa Vondrousova in Indian Wells.
“Marketa played great. In the second game I managed to find the rhythm, but the first game of the third set took a lot of power from me. I started to hurry and make mistakes, at that moment my opponent completely captured the game. I think I acted incorrectly: I ran too much and defended myself, but now I intend to rest, and only then draw conclusions. I knew that the match would be difficult because she was left-handed, and besides, she was young and in great shape, and she had nothing to lose. I will stay in Indian Wells for two days because I need rest, but here it is very quiet.
And then go to Miami. I will have time to get used to local conditions. I am really looking forward to the ground season, because my ankles hurt me. Now I bear the defeat easier. Of course, I still get upset, but I leave much faster. Today I cried for the first time in a long time. But there is nothing wrong with that. At each tournament, I laid out to the maximum, so it’s a shame to lose. Today I needed to give free rein to emotions. That means I care, “quotes the Halep Tennis Channel.
