Romanian tennis player, Irina Camelia Begu, 36th WTA, has qualified on Wednesday to the second round at Indial Wells, after defeating Alexandra Krunic, 47th WTA, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1.

In the next round, Begu will face Karolina Pliskova, 5th WTA, 5th seeded.

Begu will play also in the doubles, in pair with Simona Halep. In the first round they will face Nicole Melichar (US)/ Kveta Peschke (Czech Republic). The pair won the doubles event in Szenzhen this year.

In the singles, Halep will play against Kristyna Pliskova, 77th WTA, in the second round of the tournament.

On Wednesday, Simona Halep, 1st WTA, said she has recovered after the injury at Australian Open.

“I have recovered after Australian Open. It’s been difficult, after I lose a final, and this final was special, as the one at Roland Garros. It is important that I reached these finals,” Halep said.

Referring to the fact that no tennis player dominates the tournaments, she said: “All the girls in top 10 are very good, the level is tight, every tournament is open, I believe it is more interesting and more fun. About the frequent change of the WTA leader, I can’t say it was boring when Serena won all the time, as she is a great champion, but now it is different and more interesting,” Simona Halep said.

About the long break due to the injury, she said: “I was angry, because I did not feel the balls, by my coach (Darren Cahill) told me I had a three-week break and it’s natural to have less inspired moments. I am trying to improve my game, to prepare the next match and to win trophies.”
