Simona Halep is set to miss some time after undergoing a surgery on her nose. Halep, 30, had been dealing with breathing problems for quite some time, before deciding to address the problem by undergoing a surgery. Following the surgery, Halep will have to refrain from any physical activity for at least a few weeks.
"Hi everyone, as some might already know, I have been struggling for a while with nose problems and it got worse during the summer, especially in Washington. This problem made it hard to breathe and even worse during the nights as I was going through complete blocked nose.
The only way to solve the problem was to undergo a surgery. The doctor Daniel Popescu has performed it and taken this opportunity to also make a plastic surgery intervention. Thank you! I also want to thank my anesthesiologist Doctor Uleia Alex.
Everything went well. I will need a few weeks of rest before I can start again any physical activity. See you soon on the tennis court," Halep said in a message posted on her Twitter.
Hi guys, I have an important message for you.
Halep confirmed she's divorcing
The past few weeks haven't been easy for Halep. First, Halep exited the US Open after suffering a shock first round defeat to qualifier Daria Sniguer.
Then last week, Romanian media reported that Halep was divorcing from her billionaire husband Toni Iuruc. Over the weekend, Halep took to Instagram, where she confirmed that those rumors were indeed true. "Toni and I decided by mutual consent to go our separate ways.
I would like the press to respect our privacy and treat this subject with decency and discretion," Halep wrote on Instagram Story. Halep could benefit from some time off following everything that has happened to her in recent time. It remains to be seen when will Halep be ready to return to action.
