Halep Not One To Indulge In Runaway Dreams


LONDON – With no other top-10 seed left in her half of the draw, Simona Halep could be forgiven for thinking that this might be the year when all roads at Wimbledon lead to the final.

After all, she has already reached the season’s first two major finals, winning at Roland Garros and finishing runner-up to Caroline Wozniacki in Australia.

However, it was just as well she is not one to indulge in such runaway dreams as she got a rude reality check on Thursday when she fell 5-3 behind in the first set of her second-round contest against China’s Zheng Saisai.
