Simona Haelp beat Jenna Jankovic 2-6, 7-5. 6-4 to win the tournament at Indian Wells. Halep the No. 3 seed made to the final as Serena Williams pulled out of the match due to knee injury.  The 23 year-old came from behind to win the tournament. She made many errors but in the end she kept fighting and came to form in the second set when she broke Jankovic even the game.

The 18th seed Jankovic made to the final match by beating Sabine Lisicki 3-6, 6-3, 6-1. Jankovic came back from back injury that kept her out the last three months of 2014. The match was full of errors, as both players didn’t play well.  As the match went to into the third set Jankovic seemed tired and the younger Halep took full advantage.

The 23-year-old Romanian looked sluggish and made many errors but in the end played well enough to win.  Once she saved match point in the second set she played much better to win the match. It’s the biggest tournament victory for Halep.

It was great win for Halep considering personal for a family member in Romania.
