Simona Halep makes U turn


Reports have it that Simona Halep has pulled out of next week’s Qatar Open.

The WTA event which is billed to commence next week has been abandoned by the fourth seeded Romanian and she gave no reasons for her decision.

“Unfortunately I’ve decided to withdraw, I can’t wait to be back in Doha next year”, she wrote on her social media page.

With Osaka winning the Australian Open, Simona Halep is sadly no longer World number two and hopefully she can continue playing well in Dubai and Doha and get it back.
