Simona very likely to be in the top 10 after the Australian Open now. Closest player to her in the active rankings now is Ivanovic who would have to make the final minimum.

It feels really good Aussie Morning. I have to enjoy this day off

The last comment says "See U in the final".

Tough match tomorrow, but she can get to Jankovic imo. She's beaten Jankovic last couple of times they have played, and Jankovic wasn't too impressive last round from what I saw.

Q.  You're the last unseeded player in the fourth round.  Does that put a bit more pressure on you?
SIMONA HALEP:  Yeah, no pressure on me because I have just to enjoy the quarterfinals.  Is first time in my life.  I have just to be happy on court and to try my best, to move well, and to be relaxed.

Because it's my chance, and I have to fight for it.

SIMONA HALEP:  Yeah, it was a long time ago, my breast reduction.  I am happy for that.  Now if I have to do again for tennis, I would do, yeah.  It was a good decision for me.

Q.  What about outside the tennis?

Q.  What do you take out of today moving forward?  There will be other opportunities.  What do you learn today that you can use next time?
SIMONA HALEP:  I learned that I have to be relaxed before the match, because is just a match.  I don't want to think anymore that it's quarterfinals of Grand Slams.

Don't put pressure anymore on myself and just to enjoy the match.  Because I did really well for few matches, and the last year also few tournaments I enjoy the every match and I did really well.

Today I couldn't enjoy, and it was a big sh*t for me, this match.

Q.  You had a great tournament.  You must be happy on reflection of the first four rounds.
SIMONA HALEP:  Yes, I am happy that I could play a quarterfinals here in Grand Slam.  Was my dream before this.  I don't want to disturb my mind very much this sh*t today, this match.

But I just want to enjoy the day and to go home very happy.  I have to enjoy my best result in Grand Slam.

Halep's best chances will be on clay in a few years. It's a weak clay court era right now imo, and the next generation has people who haven't really been brought up on clay either. Being natural on clay could be a huge asset.

One week later, she was unrecognisable as a tennis player.
