Fed Cup at the same level as the slams
During the pre-tournament press conference, Simona share her love commented
“I still feel the emotions, and it’s been great. And it’s for the first time going to the semifinals, so it means a lot.
It’s different. I cannot say it’s bigger, because I work and live for Grand Slams. In this sport, it’s the most important thing. However, I will put Fed Cup on the same stair, and keep that goal of winning as important as a Grand Slam.”
Simona will face either Lesia Tsurenko or Lara Arrubarrena in the 2nd round in Qatar (she has a bye in the 1st round).
