Simona Halep admitted that Caroline Wozniacki was better than her in the final match of the Australian Open.

Romanian tennis player Simona Halep lost the final meeting at the Australian Open representative of Denmark, Caroline Wozniacki. She admitted that Wozniacki had more energy at the end of the match, but Halep seems to have prevented the injury to the ankle.

“It’s only a tennis match, but Yes, I am very upset that I was not able to win it. I was again close to victory, but the forces ended. She (Wozniacki – ed.) was better than me, she has more energy by the end of the meeting.

After the first set I just shut down. Had no energy, but then I told myself I have to beat all the balls, and managed to take the second set. In the third I made a comeback, but when I was serving for 5:3, I ran out of petrol, and I was unable to do it. Today I gave it 100%, so I’m not disappointed in myself. I’m upset only because of the fact that he lost the match. But life goes on. Sure, if I will continue to work in the same way, in the future I will be able to win.

My right leg is swollen. But, generally, both. All I need now is a long break. I didn’t believe that I will play in the final after the first match. Ankle ached every day. I couldn’t practice more than 10-15 minutes, so I just killed the ball this time and all. I didn’t believe that I’ll get through all these matches, but I wanted to. Looks like I’ve got just enough inner strength to deal with everything. This is great, and this tournament means a lot to me,” said Halep press conference Australian Open.

Earlier it was reported that Simona Halep will move to the second position of the world rankings, Caroline Wozniacki will become the first racket of the world.
