I just believed in myself :Simona Halep

by Kolkata Today

Romanian Simona Halep advanced to her third Wimbledon semi-final with a comfortable 6-2, 6-4 victory over American No.20 seed Amanda Anisimova.

Simona Halep is feeling great about her game again. The Romanian star reached her first Grand Slam semi-final since the Australian Open in 2022 after overcoming a stern test from Amanda Anisimova in the women’s singles quarter-final on Wednesday.

Simona Halep, who won the Wimbledon title in 2019, was not able to defend her title in 2020, and pulled out of the grass-court Grand Slam in 2021 as a calf injury hampered her season. Halep did not play the French Open, Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics as she was dealing with the injury concern.

“I’m very emotional right now, because it means a lot to be back in the semis,” Halep said during the on-court interview on Wednesday.

“I struggled a lot last year and now I’m just trying to build my confidence back,” she added.

When asked about her confidence level, Halep sported a smile and said ‘good level’ and stressed that she is playing her best tennis in more than 2 years.

Speaking about her quarter-final opponent Anisimova, who came up with a stern challenge, especially in the 2nd set, Halep said she was happy to get the job done in straight sets.
“She could crush the ball in the end, and I didn’t know, actually, what to do,” Halep said.

“But I just believed in myself. I said that I have to stay there, strong on my legs.”

Simona Halep will face Elena Rybkina, who became the first player from Kazakhstan to reach the Wimbledon semi-final, after she defeated Ajla Tomljanovic in 3 sets earlier on Wednesday.
