Simona Halep reached the tournament’s final after beating Vania King (USA) 6-7(3), 6-4, 6-3.
After the match, Simona shared her thoughts at the press conference and she declared: “I felt the audience’s support, they were wonderful, keeping in mind that I lost the first set, they were more and more energetic. It was good, they motivated me and I fought every ball, and that helped me win tonight. I think I was a little more powerful mentally, more powerful in the game, I was more focused in the important balls and I won the difficult ones. I started dominating the game close to the end, I lost two games when I had 4-1, and that was my fault. But I am happy that I resisted and that I won the following two. It was a more solid game, I was expecting her game to be good, fast and aggressive. I played well and I think it was a beautiful match for everyone.”
„I don’t recall the exact match (with Anastasija Sevastova) but I know I played against her. It’s going to be a tough match, every final is difficult, but I will try to enjoy it as much as possible. I’m in another final here in Bucharest and that makes me feel very good. I hope I win, I’m looking forward to it but I expect a difficult match. She has a different game, but I will try not to give up any point, just like today.”
BRD Bucharest Open 2016 Final between Simona Halep and Anastasija Sevastova will take place on Sunday, 17th of July at 16 h in the central Court. Digi Sport will also broadcast it live.
