Beaten Australian Open finalist Simona Halep said yesterday she enjoyed everything that happened in Melbourne despite being left in tears at losing the chance of her first Grand Slam title.
“Everything was beautiful at that tournament even if I lost the final,” the Romanian said at a press conference in Doha as she arrived to play in this week’s Qatar Open.
“I took only the positives and I’m really motivated to go ahead. So everything was really good for me.”
Halep was defeated in a memorable and gruelling three-set final by Caroline Wozniacki in Melbourne last month, which also meant she lost her world number one ranking to the Dane.
