“She’s a very, very difficult player and a good player. I feel confident now that I was able to win this match. I know I had so many chances to maybe finish it a little bit faster and easier, but as we saw, she doesn’t give up. I’m happy that I was a little bit stronger and I was more aggressive when I needed to be,” Halep said.
