Martina Navratilova Identifies One Reason Behind Simona Halep'S Us Open Struggles

Martina Navratilova identifies a reason behind Simona Halep’s US Open struggles


Martina Navratilova believes that the fact that New York is such a noisy place is probably one of the reasons Simona Halep has struggled at the US Open throughout her career. Halep, a two-time Grand Slam champion, is a quiet person and very introverted.

Halep is a five-time Grand Slam finalist but has never reached a final at Flushing Meadows. The US Open is the only Grand Slam in which Halep has not reached a final. Halep reached a US Open semi-final, but he hasn’t played very well at Flushing Meadows throughout his career as he has several early exits in the tournament.

But Halep won Toronto two weeks ago and Navratilova thinks this may be the year the Romanian makes a truly solid run at the US Open.

Navratilova on Halep’s chances of making a career at the US Open

«She is hitting the ball well, but the courts here are fast.

He’s had trouble in New York with the crowd, that whole New York vibe. She is more of a calm person, suitable for Wimbledon or the French Open. Yeah, it’s definitely a possibility, there’s no question,» Navratilova told the WTA website.

Last year, Emma Raducanu put in an impressive run to win the US Open as a qualifier. This year, Navratilova doesn’t expect to see a surprise winner. «This time, I don’t think we’ll have a surprise winner, but maybe another first time [major] winner.

Like Madison Keys, who reached the semifinals in Cincinnati. It’s the best she’s played since the start of the season. She might as well be Coco Gauff, because of the way she plays,» Navratilova said. Also, Navratilova named some dark horses.

«Daria Kasatkina, maybe? Jil Teichmann, she’s dangerous. Petra Kvitova, she played well in Cincinnati, but it hasn’t been that wet. She struggles with the humidity, so we’ll see how she is in New York. And Cincinnati champion Caroline Garcia. He’s been playing really well,» Navratilova said.
