Biography

Romania's Simona Halep has experienced a meteoric rise since being ranked outside the top 50 mid-2013. After reaching a career-high No.4 in the rankings she reached her first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros 2014 where she lost in three sets to Maria Sharapova. Halep resides in Constanta in her home country and is coached by Andrei Mlenda. She lists Justin Henin and Roger Federer as her tennis heroes.
