Simona’s fantastic run at the Mutua Madrid Open came to an end at the quarterfinal stage today as she was dispatched by a in-form Ons Jabeur

The world No.8 from Tunisia was at her exuberant best as she stormed to a 6-3 6-2 victory over two-time Madrid champion Halep.

Nonetheless, it was an excellent week for the Romanian, playing under new coach Patrick Mouratoglou for the first time, who moves onto Rome with a spring in her step and 30 match wins in the Spanish capital.
