Very good start to the year 2022 for Simona Halep, who today wins the final of Melbourne Summer Set 1 (WTA 250), defeating Veronika Kudermetova of Russia 6-2 6-3, after a match without emotions that lasted a little longer for an hour now.
During the award ceremony at the Rod Laver Arena, Simona Halep thanked the fans for their support and thanked the Australian Daren Cahil, who, although only her coach, “is like family”.
It is always a pleasure to come to Australia and I feel part of Australia. Thank you again.SIMONA HALEP
This is Simona’s first title in Australia, a country she has often said she feels closely connected to.
This is the 23rd major title that Simona has passed in her name, of which 2 Grand Slam titles, at Roland Garos in 2018 and at Wimbledon in 2019, and 21 WTA titles.
Winning 280 points, Simona Halep will climb five WTA places and will reach the 15th place in the world tomorrow.
Good luck Simona.
