Simona Halep beats Sloane Stephens in French Open final, wins maiden Grand Slam | tennis | Hindustan Times

Simona Halep, with two Grand Slam final appearances, both at the French Open, is edging ever closer to that elusive Major title missing in her locker.  Romania’s Simona Halep, currently ranked as the top female tennis player in the world, enjoyed a highly satisfying career milestone in 2017. Halep, as a result of Garbine Muguruza’s loss at the China Open, clinched the World No.1 ranking for the first time in her professional tennis career, thereby becoming the seventh player to reach that landmark without winning a Grand Slam title. But, perhaps, the only blemish is that Halep’s personal trophy return this year is not a testament to her ranking status. Her sole title win in 2017 was her triumph at the Mutua Madrid Open. But in reaching a seco

Simona Halep beats Sloane Stephens to win French Open - CBS News

After losing a tumultuous three hour final to Maria Sharapova at Roland Garros, Simona Halep went to her chair, put her head in her towel and cried. Like so many who have lost their first Grand Slam final, Halep was overwhelmed by the realisation that a once in a lifetime opportunity may have just gone begging. But by the time she reached the interview room, the initial raw emotion had begun to fade, to be replaced by a sense of perspective at what has been a remarkable twelve months. At the 2013 French Open, Halep was seen as a dangerous floater, the kind of player who would leave the seeds a

Will Simona Halep End Her Grand Slam Final ‘Hoodoo’ in 2018? - Last Word on Tennis

The final set, replete with many twists and turns, went 71 minutes by itself. Wozniacki was rejuvenated by a medical time-out at 4-3 down, getting treatment on her knee, and went on to close it out. At that point, technically the first time Wozniacki had been behind, Halep looked the better prospect. It was not to be for the Romanian. As with all things that take time, sometimes they're more special at the end.  Caroline Wozniacki celebrates after defeating Simona Halep with the clock in the background indicating the epic contest. Credit:DITA ALANGKARA. The final set was topsy-turvy. Breaks of serve were more commonplace than holds. The third game of the decider, in particular, was indicative of the contest. Halep was trailing 0-2 and needed six break points to get back in the match, a Wozniacki double fault given Halep the game. They'd played 34 minutes in the final set.

Simona Halep proud of first Grand Slam final showing

The youngest Grand Slam finalist since Wozniacki in 2009 and the first to come from Latvia broke and secured a gutsy hold to level a topsy-turvy second set. She utilised a rasping forehand to break and was not deterred by failing to back that up with a hold; breaking again and taking the second of two set points on her own serve and teeing up a tense decider with a terrific forehand.  It was a second French Open final defeat for Halep, who also lost to Maria Sharapova in 2014. Dubbed as the default favourite this time around despite an ankle injury, she missed the chance to supplant Angelique Kerber as the new world number one and instead had to settle for second place after leapfrogging the absent Serena Williams and semi-final opponent Karolina Pliskova. Her wait for a maiden Grand Slam triumph goes on. "I'm sad I couldn't win it, but it was a great experience," Halep said.
