Former World No.1 Simona Halep is an integral part of women’s tennis for a long time. Remarkably, she has won 22 titles, including the French Open and Wimbledon titles. However, she revealed that she received criticism before her wedding party.
Not long ago, Halep married her long-time boyfriend and Aromanian Businessman Toni Iuruc at a grand wedding ceremony in Bucharest, Romania. At that time, some of them claimed that she would sink after her marriage to Toni.
After the marriage, Simona is playing in the back-to-back WTA events. She now competes at the home tournament, Transylvania Open 2021. Therein, she stormed into the round of 16 following a straight-set(6-1, 6-2) win over compatriot Elena-Gabriela Ruse.
Speaking about her post-marriage life in an interview, Halep emphasised, “many people have said that I will go down after the wedding party, but I did not say such a thing! My husband is with me and I am happy. He supports me to continue playing.” (Quote Has Been Translated Into English Via Google Translator)
Notably, Toni Iuruc braced Simona Halep from the stand while she was playing against Ruse in Cluj Napoca.
