Rising star Simona Halep reaches her first WTA Tour final


Using her Wilson Blade 98 tennis racket, Simona Halep reaches her first WTA Tour final in Fes after defeating Voracova 75 64. In her quarterfinals match, Halep pulled the upset of the tournament as she defeated #2 seed Schnyder in straight sets 6-2 7-6 (3).

“That was a great win for me, it’s been an unbelievable tournament so far and I want to continue my run to the title,” said Halep.

In 2008, Halep was the Roland Garros Girls Singles Champion and has been finding her stride on the WTA Tour of late.

Last week in Marbella, the 18 year old Halep qualified and defeated fellow Wilson players Iveta Benesova and Sorana Cirstea en route to the her first WTA Tour quarterfinal. This week, she took it one step further.

“Simona’s game is explosive and it’s only a matter of time for her to be consistent at the WTA Tour level,” said Wilson Tour Manager Europe, Renaud Vallon.

“We are pleased to have Simona on the Wilson team and are excited to watch her in her make some waves at Roland Garros.”

Halep will now take on the fellow Wilson player Iveta Benesova for the Fes title
