If I say ''Breast Reduction Surgery,'' Kris Jenner, Pamela Anderson, Heidi Montag, Ariel Winter, Drew Barrymore, Ayesha Takia and Jennifer Connelly are a few famous names that cross our mind.
(If these names really struck your mind, you probably need a time-wastage reduction surgery)
Time and again, women around the world have been objectified either for what they had in abundance or for what they lacked in the name of 'perfection'. Seldom does it happen that the world population chooses to get over the physical side of any woman and looks into a bigger picture.
Simona Halep facts have a similar story to tell you where an amateur teenager Lawn Tennis player defied the world and shifted their focus from her bosom to her game.
Let's read about them and also find the best Simona Halep photos that define her as the new WTA queen.
Born on 27 September 1991, Simona is a Romanian Lawn Tennis player who currently stands tall at rank #3 in the WTA ranking, having ranked #2 earlier as her career's best.
Simona, as many other Tennis champs, was an early bloomer. She started playing Lawn Tennis at the tender age of four and since then, her passion for the game only grew.
She started playing Tennis after getting influenced by her older brother's game.
After having trained under the guidance of her country's best Tennis coaches, Halep turned pro in 2006 at the age of 15.
Counting Justine Henin and Andrei Pavel as her favourites, the Right-handed (two-handed backhand) player does not shy away from speaking about what she likes. She enjoys music, movies and handball when she gets some free time.

Apart from Chocolates & Pizza, she has a craving for Pasta and Orange juice. However, what she does not like are chillies. So now you know how to please and how not to disappoint her!
Being two-time French Open finalist (2014 & 2017), Simona likes to call Roland Garros as her favourite Grand Slam tournament among the four.
If we keep the time that she spends practising on court aside, Simona gives an hour to physical conditioning. Her daily workout schedule includes running, sprinting, body weight exercises and resistance moves using fitness band.
Fun fact: She hates to lift weights and does not lift any more than 2Kgs of free weights.
Yeah, being 5'6'' she knows that she can never beat the likes of Maria Sharapova when it comes to height but that does not hamper her game at all. Maybe this is the reason why she has finally opted for Yogasanas to overcoming stress. *Just kidding*
Tennis coach? No!
A fitness model? No!
A Mathematician? Yes!
Simona says that she was good with numbers and that just reflects with her dominating figures on the court.
Horia Tecau, belonging to the same country as Simona's, is a Double's Tennis player currently ranked 19th in the world and is dating Simona.
As of 2017, Simona's net worth stands high at $145 Million which comes from her Tennis event participation and the brands like Adidas that she endorses.
Wooo... that's quite a sum!.
Luminita Halep is her sister who is damn pretty and we don't doubt it!
Losing to Serena Williams in the US Open 2016 Quarter-final while being World no.2 and Serena being World no.1, Serena can be named as one of her biggest rivals. However, Serena's absence in the French Open 2017 due to pregnancy is surely a positive for the Romanian.
When questioned about her decision to go under knife for a breast reduction surgery, she said- "It's the weight that troubles me. My ability to react quickly, my breasts make me uncomfortable when I play."
"I don't like them in my everyday life, either. I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn't been a sportswoman."
So, because of the 34DD size that she had, she was having constant back pain due to the excess weight that she had to carry while playing such a demanding sport. This made her take the tough decision of going for a surgery and get the comfortable size of 34C.
Apart from being highly competitive on court, when she repeatedly faces the questions around her breast reduction surgery, she becomes slightly furious (which is obvious) and asks the reporters to not to ask her personal questions.
So this is what I was talking about in the beginning of the article, that this player is much more than some surgery that she had years ago. To her male fans, I wish to say that rather than remembering her for some 'body tissues', let us remember her for the game that she plays so amazingly.
Enough said, I leave it up to you guys!

Simona's coach Wim Fissette calls her legs as ''Footballer's legs'' while the Romanian player like to call herself a ''Baseline player.'' Team Halepano also houses Simona's manager Virginia Ruzici who qualified for WTA finals both in 1983 and 1984.
Halep faced the Latvian Tennis player in the finale who made a series of upsets in her course to reach the French Open 2017 finals. Ostapenko's dominant play out of nowhere upset Halep when Ostapenko beat her 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 after being 0-2 down in the second set.
We wish Simona hard luck and congratulate J. Ostapenko for an extraordinary performance.
