Interesting take on Halep from TF

 I will decode the Simona riddle for Cahill's benefit. Simona was dangerous a couple of years back because of 3 things:
1. Angles
2. Dedicated pushing, no ball bashing.
3. Strong serve mmHg

She has none of these things now. Something has gotten into her brain that she needs to whack the ball to get to the "next level". Maybe she thinks if she loses while doing that, it's ok, learning process. She puts a lot of her weight behind her shots, and they still don't cause trouble. The opponent uses that pace and then Simona has to start running while recovering from her previous effort-ful shot. She should embrace who she is, like Aga and Kerber, who both tried to hit big and then reverted after 1 year. For 2 years, she's been trying to live outside her comfort zone, and Cahill is her enabler. Just revert back to her 2014 game, drop the star coach, and try to win RG.
