Simona’s hometown is in Constanța in Romania, but she moved to Bucharest at the age of 16 to focus on her training.
Just like any other sportsperson, Simona also undergoes a strict workout regimen, but she avoids weight lifting; as she does not want her body to get bulky.
Once, in an interview, she stated that even though Roger Federer was one of her favourites, she grew up idolizing Justine Henin and Andrei Pavel.
In an interview, she stated that she is a very shy person and calls herself an introvert.
She used to hate being in front of people, and she used to warm up alone before a match or training; as she did not want people to see her.
Reportedly, she feels that if she was taller she would have been a better player.
She considers herself short for the game of tennis. Interestingly, Halep is the shortest player to win the Wimbledon title.

Virginia is also a former Romanian tennis player, and she is the first Romanian to win the French Open; Simona being the second.
In an interview, Simona revealed that early in her career she wasn’t used to playing on grass courts; as Romania did not have any grass courts.

Romanian journalist Adrian Toca said, “Simona is without a doubt the biggest sports star in Romania”.
After Halep won Grand Slam titles at the 2018 French Open and 2019 Wimbledon, she was welcomed back to Romania with large celebrations at the Arena Națională in Bucharest.
About 15,000 people attended the celebration after the 2018 French Open title and about 30,000 people attended after her 2019 Wimbledon triumph.
Romanian International Tennis Hall of Famer and businessman Ion Țiriac presided over the Wimbledon celebration, which was attended by several of the most notable athletes in the country’s history including footballer Gheorghe Hagi and Olympic gold medal gymnast Nadia Comăneci.
