Romanian tennis queen Simona Halep is looking forward to her opening-round opponent at the Miami Open 2021. Meanwhile, Halep revealed her goals and said she is now more willing to participate in tournaments than finding the best spot in the WTA ranking.
“For me, the goal is a Grand Slam, if it’s possible to win one again. And this year’s Olympics, because I really want to have a medal for my career. So now I’m more interested in tournaments than ranking,” World No.3 stated during a press conference in Miami Gardens.
“So Thank God I Didn’t Have Any Serious Injuries”, says Simona Halep
Romanian has been ranked as World No.1 for 64 weeks by the women’s tennis association. Halep is only the active player in the consecutive weeks(353) in the Top 10 of the WTA World rankings.
When taking stocks of her career, Simona explained, “I think I did a good job because I stayed very focused on what I had to do. I was also very professional with my body. I took care of myself every time.”(Quotes Have Been Translated Into English Via Google Translator)
“When I had a little problem, so thank God I didn’t have any severe injuries. Of course, I had some injuries because it’s normal to play a tournament every week. But I took very good care of everything. Had consistency,” Halep added.
“I Played Good Tennis All The Time”: Halep
Wimbledon reigning champion further said that consistency is the key to her success, and she played the best standard of tennis all the time.
Simona continued, “Also, my game is based on feeling the ball all the time, without making too many mistakes. So it’s probably easier for me to have a good level of tennis every week.”
“I can’t say that in some tournaments I’ve played, I played good tennis all the time, and that’s why I was confident that every year I could have the same or even better results. Consistency, I think, remains in my style of play, and that’s why I was able to stay so focused on what I have to do,” the 2018 Australian Open runner-up confessed.
However, No.3 seed Simona Halep will face her countrywoman Mihaela Buzarnescu or the French Caroline Garcia in her opening round match at the Hard Rock Stadium.
