Simona Halep


S. HALEP/T. Pereira
6/2, 6/2

THE MODERATOR:テつ Questions, please.

Q.テつ A bit cold out there, otherwise is that the perfect start?
SIMONA HALEP:テつ Yeah, it was a perfect start for match.テつ First round always it's difficult, but today I played really well.テつ The court was beautiful, so I was enjoying every moment.
Yeah, it's not easy to start the tournament, but I'm happy that I did and I did very well.

Q.テつ How is the shoulder?
SIMONA HALEP:テつ I didn't have problems with shoulder.テつ I had back here.テつ (Pointing to scapula area.)テつ The muscle was contracted.テつ Now I recovered very well and I can play.

Q.テつ The draw seems a little kinder this year than previous years.テつ Is that a chance to set record straight at Wimbledon?
SIMONA HALEP:テつ It's tough to say now because, yeah, I have better draw because I'm seeded now and it's normal.
Next round I play against Tsurenko.テつ She's a good player.テつ I played against her last year.テつ It was difficult match.
So I'm very focused.テつ I want to give everything I can on court and to try to play my best.テつ I want to play many matches here, but it's not easy.テつ I want to take match by match.

Q.テつ Does it feel different being seeded here, particularly so high this year compared to previous years?
SIMONA HALEP:テつ Yeah, it is.テつ I feel a little pressure.テつ It's normal.テつ But I want just to get it and to keep in my mind only and to think about what I have to do on court.
It's not easy to be seeded, but it's also nice to be there.

Q.テつ Do you have a goal or expectation from the next couple of weeks?
SIMONA HALEP:テつ Of course.テつ Every day I have a goal.テつ I want to win every match and every tournament, but it's not easy.テつ I will try to give everything on court and to do my best always.
Otherwise, I cannot stay and don't think about the goal.テつ I have a goal every day, and I want to fight for it.
