The International Tennis Federation has awarded Romanian tennis player Simona Halep on Tuesday, during a dinner in Paris.
Simona Halep participated in the “World Champions’ Evening”, where the world best players were awarded.
Simona was awarded the ITF trophy as the best woman player in the world in 2018, while Novak Djokovic was named the best male tennis player in the world.
“It’s a great honor for me to be here. It’s really emotional. I have the best memories from last year’s tournament (Roland Garros – our note), when I lifted the trophy, my favorite trophy, so I’m happy to come back and to play quarterfinals this year,” Halep said.
“I am very honored to receive this trophy, it is very important for me and it is another night I will never forget,” Simona Halep said after receiving the trophy.
Simona was accompanied by her parents, along with businessman Ion Tiriac and Virginia Ruzici.
