Halep Plays Down Injury Fears

Halep Plays Down Injury Fears

Simona Halep feels the injury she picked up in her Wimbledon first-round win over Aliaksandra Sasnovich is “nothing dangerous”. The Romanian seventh seed fell awkwardly in the first set and had her ankle strapped up on court.

Halep managed to claim a 6-4 7-5 win over Belarus’ Sasnovich to set up a second-round meeting with Mihaela Buzarnescu and is confident she will have recovered in time for the clash with her compatriot. “It’s okay in this moment,” she said, as reported by The Metro. “But I need to do the treatment. “I feel a little bit.

I think it’s a little bit stretched, the muscle behind the knee, and also the Achilles. Hopefully, it is nothing dangerous and I can recover until the next match. “Yeah, [it] could have been even worse. But actually I was lucky a little bit because I stopped the swing, yeah, then I just turn around and continue the point. It was a little bit better then.”
