    Simona Halep is a three-time French Open finalist. She won her first major singles title by defeating Sloane Stephens in the 2018 final in Paris. Wimbledon starts next Monday, with Simona but Halep announcing her withdrawal from the tournament before the draw at the All England Club.

    Tennis lovers know that Spain’s legendary player Rafael Nadal and Japan’s Naomi Osaka are not going to participate in Wimbledon in advance due to various reasons. Simona Halep not playing in such a situation is a big shock for this tournament.
