Simona Halep is the top seed at the Dubai Women's Tennis Championship, a remarkable achievement considering that only two years ago she was not even ranked in this competition and had to qualify to compete. Over the past two years there have been some major changes in her tennis game that have resulted in her rising to the ranking of number three in the world but probably one of the most important changes has been in her mindset.
She admitted during interviews at the Dubai Championship press conference that probably the biggest difference in her game which has her now believing that she can potentially win her first Grand Slam in 2015 is that she actually believes she can play well in those competitions.
The difference between elite tennis players is rarely in their physical abilities as most are usually great athletes but more in the mindset of the players. The great players such as Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova are not only in superb physical condition and are amazing athletes but they are also incredibly confident and believe that they can always win. Simona Halep is now in possession of this type of confidence and has some tennis observers now believing that she could break into the winners circle of a Grand Slam in 2015.
To be a champion one must be willing to think like a champion which entails believing they can win each and every time they step on a tennis court. Simona Halep is now thinking like a champion and thus is one step closer to winning a Grand Slam which if she does could result in her becoming an endorsement queen in Europe.
Look out for Simona Halep, a tennis star with model looks who is thinking like a champion. First one thinks like a champion and then they start acting like a champion. The future is bright in for Romanian tennis star Simona Halep and makes her one of the favourites to win at the Dubai Championships and potentially, a Grand Slam tournament in 2015.
