Simona celebrates birthday with first-round win at Roland Garros

No.1 seed Simona Halep of Romania celebrated her 29th birthday in style with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo in the first round of Roland Garros on Sunday.

The 2018 Roland Garros champion never got to experience a birthday at the clay-court major before, but with the rescheduling of the event post-hiatus, World No.2 Halep enjoyed a one-hour and 22-minute win over the World No.70 as a gift.

The perfect present was that I won today, of course.

Simona said, during her post-match press conference.

It was a really special day playing on Roland Garros on my birthday. So it’s going to be pretty unique, maybe forever.
