Simona Halep was the protagonist of an important season, during which she won her second Slam title, at Wimbledon, against Serena Williams. After the Roland Garros 2018, Halep completed a very important double: always among the favorites on clay-court, she had never shone on grass-courts, a surface that had always given her big problems.
Well, after this great milestone, Simona, who is only 28 years old, can look to the future by placing important, ambitious and precise goals. The most important? The career Grand Slam. Halep can actually dream of this ambitious goal.
The Parisian Slam unlocked her flowering in the Major and the victory at Wimbledon confirmed her status. This season, Wimbledon aside, had some ups and downs, but Halep is a concrete tennis player, who can now concentrate more serenely on her goals.
Why she can get the career Grand Slam In Melbourne, she has reached the finals, in 2018, losing incredibly against Caroline Wozniacki. Although the surface of the Australian Open is fast, Simona can be at ease, considering also the solidity of her performances on hard-courts.
The 2015 semi-final at the US Open, lost against Flavia Pennetta, remains her best result in New York. But on a surface that would fit her tennis well, Halep will be able to improve that score in the future and get her first success at Flushing Meadows.
It must be considered that the competition in the WTA Tour is fierce, and it is in every single tournament. Halep will have to fear her rivals, who are ready to take on every sign of weakness of their opponents. The Romanian still has age on her side: she is still relatively young.
Her ambition and determination can be the fundamental factor: she is no longer the mentally weak tennis player, but a solid player ready to win any Slam event.
