At the time, the Romanian said that she only had mild symptoms, and that she was recovering well. Now, she has taken to Twitter to announce that she has completely recovered.
After she announced the good news, the Romanian engaged in some friendly banter with her coach Darren Cahill. He asked her if they could begin training again, and Simona enthusiastically said yes. However, Cahill felt that she needed a break before doing so and Halep agreed with him.
Halep’s loss there meant that she would be Grand Slam-less in 2020. Considering that she won two Slams over the course of 2018 and 2019, the Romanian must have been upset by this. Post her break, Halep is certain to resume her training in full swing to prepare for the 2021 Australian Open.
The Australian Open is a Grand Slam title that Halep has failed to win in her career. She did come close to it back in 2018 as she reached the final. However, she lost to Caroline Wozniacki in a thrilling match there.
The Romanian will now be hoping that she can go all the way when she plays in Melbourne. If she wins the title there, it will help her regain the No. 1 ranking from Ashleigh Barty.
