“She is a great player that I believe won through her own merits” - Cirstea hopes Halep fights for answers after positive test

Sorana Cirstea broke her silence on the suspension of Simona Halep expressing hope she clears her name and continues playing.

Cirstea and Halep have never been the best of friends but there is a dose of respect there as they both come from the same country and are known, tennis players. Cirstea even admitted that they're not the best of friends she still hopes the situation resolves well for Halep.

She shared a post on Instagram writing:

"Although we may not be the best of friends, I know Simona well enough for decades to strongly believe that she would never willingly and in good faith touch any doping substance. The sport of tennis represents fair play and puts rivalries aside. She is a great player and I believe won through her own merits.

I really hope she will fight it out and shed the much needed light for her and for our beloved sport. WADA is an extremepy professional entity that will help her get to the bottom of this."
