Simona Halep completed an atypical 2021. She did not obtain the expected results due to various injuries at different times of the year and, in addition, she suffered personal inconveniences that caused her to lose focus in the beginning of 2021. After getting off the semifinals of the WTA in Linz, he told all this through a statement.
“Just before I start, as a family we suffered a painful wound in our hearts because we lost one of our closest relationships, my aunt. It was the hardest moment and it took me a while to accept it, but I understood that in the end this is how life is and you have to overcome the anguish and stay strong “, said former world number one on the loss of her father’s sister.
On the other hand, injuries were the protagonists of his year: “Then I started to suffer some injuries until the biggest one came, the calf in Rome. I didn’t know how to handle it, because I had never faced something like that before. “continued Halep, who spent three months without playing tournaments, was unable to be at Roland Garros or defend his 2019 Wimbledon title. Finally, he returned to Canada. During the period of inactivity, he began to wonder if he could get back to where he was, if he could trust his body again, but he was able to overcome it and regain his confidence. She feels full to go back to the big leagues.
This season, the two-time Grand Slam champion did not win a title and will finish 2021 outside the Top 10 for the first time, but she remains positive and ready to face challenges that will put her back among the best in the world.
