Simona Halep – Danielle Collins LIVE VIDEO | What Patrick Mouratoglou says

Digi Sport journalist Gabriel Morariu interviewed Simona Halep’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, in Rome. The Frenchman talked about the victory with Alize Cornet, from the first round, and prefaced the confrontation with Danielle Collins.

“I think the match with Alize Cornet was mentally difficult for several reasons. One of them is that she lost to her at the Australian Open not long ago. It’s not easy to play against a player who beat you. , the pressure is higher, you say to yourself “this player knows how to beat me.” She didn’t make a very good match, considering what Simona can produce. .

Collins is a dangerous player, she has played well on clay in the past, especially last year at Roland Garros. She is very solid, aggressive. Simona will definitely have to show off her best tennis. The slag is great for Simona, it’s something special. Due to her quality of movement, she is a smart player, she uses the angles well, the effect imprinted on the ball. I think he will win if he manages to put those qualities into practice. “Patrick Mouratoglou said in an interview with Digi Sport.
