In an interview to TVR1, Simona Halep spoke about her relationship with millionaire Toni Iuruc. Halep, who recently won her second Grand Slam title in the French Open, said: "Now I am more relaxed and open. I have a dear person.
We have a normal relationship, I feel very well. But I would like it to stay personal. I belong to Romania when it's about tennis. Love and tennis can coincide, but I think personal life is the most important one. I am dating someone and I would never be able to sacrifice my family for tennis."
Halep was coached by the Australian Darren Cahill in Cincinnati. The Romanian admitted Cahill, with whom she split with last year, could join her on the team soon again. "Honestly, I don't know. I would like it very much but I don't know.
I would love to have him back! I have a feeling that he'll be back but don't know the details! We agreed to discuss it after the US Open." Asked if fatigue may have influenced her in Toronto and Cincinnati, Halep concluded: "I was okay.
After Wimbledon, I haven't worked that much. I was on holiday. I had a break. Then in Toronto, I had problems with my Achilles. Coming here I couldn't train that much, but I'm here just to keep working and to get better day by day.
I'm not gonna blame myself because of this, so I'm still positive and I will take just the positive from this tournament."
