What's next for Simona Halep after the Australian Open 2020 semi-final defeat

Although the resolute Romanian Simona Halep had been at the verge of hitting the jackpot in the ’20 AO, the 28-year-old aggressive baseliner had failed to clear the semi-final deck against the unseeded Muguruza and the Spaniard had battled past Simona Halep to make headway in to the final following a 7-6(8), 7-5 muck-sweat victory.

Nonetheless, it has been roughly a couple of days Halep had made her way back home in to Romania, yet it appeared she had already cooled off her heels and had been all-set to take on the challenges ahead, as this February would unfurl two more tournaments for the former world’s No.

1 and the Wimbledon Champion. As this weekend would be reserved for the Fed Cup and the 2nd Seed would not partake in the St. Petersburg indoor tournament alongside another one in Hua Hin, in the mid-February the Constantan comely would be back in to the circuit at a $2.5 million Dubai tournament scheduled to take place between February 17th to 23rd.

Aside from that, shortly after the Dubai tournament, she will present herself in to Doha where last year she had to hit the sack following a surprise defeat in the final against the then 23-year-old Belgian young flair, Elise Mertens.

However, as the Romanian former world’s No. 1 with 19 WTA and 6 ITF titles had made a promising start-off of the year despite the pandemonium in the ’20 AO semi-final, Halep had scored 540 points in the WTA following her Melbourne Semi, while she had sidestepped the glittering Czechian Karolina Pliskova to let her hairs down as the new No. 2 in WTA with 6101 points. Pliskova had pulled off the ’20 AO podium with 5290 points.
