What is ending is probably the most important week of life for the strong Romanian tennis player Simona Halep. On Wednesday 15 September 2021 the tennis player married the millionaire Toni Iuruc in a beautiful and quite closed ceremony.
The wedding, held in Constance, was attended by many guests of honor and among these there was also the former tennis player Virginia Rugizi, former Roland Garros champion and current manager of the former world number one.
The tennis player revealed which was the best gift she received and which she and her husband appreciated: "The best gift I received is Mrs. Ruzici's racket, the racket with which she won the Roland Garros. My husband is a collector and he puts some sort of trophy in the room with all my trophies.
It was his desire, not mine. Initially I wanted to collect my hits in Constanta, but now we have a room together with all the precious objects we have in Bucharest. Toni wanted a racket from Ruzici and rackets from Nastase and Ion Tiriac, but I noticed that men are harder to convince about their things."
After her wedding Simona Halep had planned to take a break and only then attend the last few three tournaments in 2021. Specifically, the tournaments that the Romanian will play are Indian Wells, the Kremlin Cup and the Transylvania Open.
Regarding this partial absence of her from the world of tennis, Halep clarified: "It cannot be defined as a honeymoon, but let's say it will be a week where I will dedicate myself only to my husband. I want to detach myself a little from the world of tennis and relax as I was recovering from important emotions and too much stress.
I need to rest because three major tournaments are coming up now."
Novak Djokovic is moved by talking about his family
The last steep climb was fatal to enter the legend and complete the Grand Slam for the second time in his career.
Daniil Medvedev tripped Novak Djokovic and took possession (deservedly) of the US Open title, redeeming himself from the failed attempt in 2019 always in the final with Rafa Nadal. Probably, the difference was made by the six hours more Nole was forced to stay on the field than his opponent, thanks to not having immediately closed several affordable matches on paper, and the lack of clarity of the world number one, who he made a lot of mistakes during the race and never managed to neutralize the Russian's game.
The Serbian has disappointed in a certain sense the large audience of Arthur Ashe Stadium, not exactly respectful of the new winner of the last Slam tournament of the 2021 season, especially in the last points played in the third set, which has well supported the champion of Belgrade, trying to help him in the many difficulties encountered.
Immediately after the defeat, he declared on the court: “Of course, part of me is very sad. It's hard to digest, this loss, I mean, considering everything that was at stake. But on the other hand I felt something that I have never experienced in my life here in New York.
The crowd made me feel very special. They pleasantly surprised me." Djokovic thus missed the opportunity to overtake Spaniard Rafa Nadal and Swiss Roger Federer in the special classification of Grand Slam titles won. The three will close the year paired at 20 and in the next year, hoping that they will be regularly on the court and all in the best physical condition, they will fight even more to take the solitary top of the ranking.
"And in tennis we learn very quickly how to move on. Very soon there are other challenges, other things that are coming. I learned to overcome these hard defeats in the Grand Slam finals, the ones that hurt the most. I still love this sport and I still feel good on the court.
As long as there is motivation and that glow, I will keep playing." In a press conference, interviewed by some Serbian media, Nole let himself go talking about his family: "I have different priorities in life. I want to spend more time with my children, I promised. My absence hurts a lot."
