World No.1 tennis player Simona Halep enjoys Dubrovnik

By  Sep 14, 2018

Simona Halep, Romanian professional tennis player and current world No. 1 on the WTA Tour, is relaxing at Dubrovnik! She shared photos from our city all over her social media and on her Twitter she tagged Borna Coric and Donna Vekic, asking them if they can guess where she's spending her holiday.

On her Instagram, that is followed by almost 900 thousand fans, she published photos of her posing, with hashtag #beautifulplace. The photos were liked by more than 70 thousand people!

For those who don't know, Halep first broke into the world's top 50 at the end of 2012, reached the top 20 in August 2013, and finally the top 10 in January 2014. She won her first 6 WTA titles in the same calendar year in 2013 (a feat that was last achieved by Steffi Graf in 1986 when she won her first 7), being named the WTA's Most Improved Player at its end, as well as being named ESPN Center Court's 2013 Most Improved Player. 

Halep won her first major tournament at the 2018 French Open, having previously lost in the 2014 French Open, 2017 French Open and 2018 Australian Openfinals. She also reached the final of the 2014 WTA Finals, losing to Serena Williams in straight sets after having defeated her earlier in the tournament.[9] Halep continued her success throughout the 2015 and 2016 seasons, winning 3 titles in each respective season (including 2 Premier Mandatory titles) and remaining within the Top 10. 

Halep was the most clicked player on WTATennis.com for two consecutive years (2014–2015), when she was awarded the WTA Most Popular Player of the Yearprize. After the 2017 Wimbledon Championships, Simona Halep became the active player with the most consecutive weeks within the Top 10. Halep has also won WTA's Fan Favorite Singles Player in 2017.
