Simona confirms Dobre as new coach

Simona Halep has confirmed the appointment of Romanian Daniel Dobre as her new full-time head coach.

Simona and Dobre have worked together successfully in the past, both before and during Simona’s collaboration with former coach Darren Cahill.

“I have worked with him (Daniel Dobre) before so he knows me really well and I feel happy that he is in my team,” said the World No.2. “I trust him and we had a good collaboration in the past and I think the most important thing is that I feel good with him and we have a good connection.”

Simona will face the winner of Taylor Townsend vs Johanna Larsson in her first match at the Miami Open this week.
