French Open champion Halep warmed up for her run to the final at Melbourne Park last year by winning the Shenzhen Open in southern China but has played only one match since September, a 6-4 6-4 defeat to Australia’s Ashleigh Barty at the Sydney International on Wednesday.

But it’s a little bit different because last year I had about 10, 15 matches before Melbourne, now I have only one, which I lost,” the Romanian told reporters at Melbourne Park on Saturday.



MELBOURNE (Reuters) - World number one Simona Halep, flying solo after parting ways with coach Darren Cahill, feels refreshed after a long lay-off to recover from a back injury but also concedes she has risked her Australian Open campaign with scant preparations.

“I took the risk staying home a little bit longer.

I cannot change fast,” said Halep, a gallant loser to Caroline Wozniacki in the Melbourne final last year after carrying a painful ankle injury through the tournament.
