Before heading back to New Haven in August, we caught up with 2013 Connecticut Open Champion Simona Halep via email for an exclusive Q&A. However, instead of typing the responses, she answered the questions in her own handwriting! For more, read below!

You’re returning to the Connecticut Open for the third consecutive year. Could you tell us what you love about the tournament and explain your decision to return each year?


After New Haven, you’re off to the US Open. Could you share about how playing New Haven before heading to New York is beneficial?


Do you have any places (i.e. restaurants, shops) that you like to visit while in New Haven?


New Haven is known for its great restaurants, especially pizza. Do you have a favorite Romanian food?


What music are you listening to these days? What’s on your playlist?


What are some of your hobbies when you’re not playing tennis?


If you could have any profession/job other than a professional tennis player, what would you do?
