Халеп: Возняцки - самый большой вызов для меня

Simona Halep

Simona Halep believes a victory in the Australian Open is more important than first place in the world ranking.

The first racket of the world Simona Halep talked about his condition and attitude for the decisive final match of the Australian Open.

“I feel great. I’m very glad that it happened – I play another final. For the third time. Maybe I’ll get lucky. I’m happy and proud of how behaved on the court and fought until the very end. It’s a great feeling. Looking forward to the last match of the tournament.

My ankle? At the beginning of the tournament I didn’t think I could go that far, because the situation was really bad. Now I’m in the finals, so we’ll see what happens. After the match in the first round, I got confidence that I can continue to play and win. That is why I believe that the ankle will be fine for all games. I don’t want to think about it. First, on Saturday I’ll give all that I have and then I will have a good rest.

As for the match against Wozniacki, it would be a match similar to today. I’m not going to change anything. This is probably the biggest challenge for me, because this is the first Helmet of the season and my first final here. I played against her many times, she is a serious rival. I won a few matches with her, but it will be totally different and new game.

To be honest, to become the champion of Grand slam tournament means more to me than to be the number one ranking. This is my dream, but it is always difficult to carry out when you to close it. I had two options, the last is the closest. And if I again reached the final, then I will once again have the chance to win, and if that happens, I will not give up and will tune to the next such opportunity”, – quotes tennis player Australian Open website.

Earlier Karolina Pliskova commented on the match against Simona Halep, who lost in 1/4 of the Open championship of Australia.
