Romanian tennis player Simona Halep to train in Australia for 2017 season
Romanian tennis star Simona Halep will train in Australia for the 2017 season, the home country of her coach Darren Cahill.
Thus, Halep will no longer train in Romania, as he did in previous years. The change could be good for the Romanian player, as the first Grand Slam of 2017 will be the Australian Open. The tournament will take place in Melbourne, Australia, from January 16 to January 29.
Darren Cahill announced in a Tweitter post that Simona Halep would train in Adelaide, Australia in December.
“New recruit for @afl Women's League with @Adelaide_FC? Great outside speed @Simona_Halep will be in Adelaide for December training,” reads the message.
Halep is currently in Singapore for the WTA Finals tournament, which she started with a 6-2, 6-4 win over American Madison Keys. She will play against number one Angelique Kerber today.
