Simona Halep Boyfriend, Husband, Net Worth
Simona Halep is Romania's most exceptional pride and joy. Not only is she the southeastern European country's most revered export, but also its biggest tennis star.
Ranked number one in the world twice by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), Simona's rise to tennis supremacy has its share of a tale to tell. A gentle breeze through her biography reveals it all!
Bio - Age, Parents, High School & College
Born in Constanta, Romania on 27 September 1991, Simona comes from a family of five. Her parents: Stere and Tania, who are of Aromanian descent, share a son Nicole and daughter Luminita besides her.

Her biological father Stere, who owns a dairy product business in Romania, was once a football player. But, it was her brother Nicole, who inspired her to take up tennis.
Simona - now age 27 - got introduced to tennis while attaining Junior High School at the age of four. She has never looked back since then. Though not college educated, she learned valuable lessons from tennis coaches Andrei Mlendea, Adrian Marcu, and Firicel Tomai.
Major Victories & Net Worth
In 2008, then 17-year-old Simona began joining junior competitions. By the year-end, she had won two tournaments with $10 thousand in prize money in her native land.
The following year, she made a serious - yet unsuccessful - attempt to qualify for the Grand Slam. Putting the loss behind her, she eventually made a list a year later in 2010.
It took her three more calendar years before Simona began to show her actual prowess. In 2013, she won her first WTA title and would go on to win five more. Not surprisingly though, WTA named her Most Improved Player.
By 2017, she held the number one position in the world tennis ranking. She maintained the same feat a year later. Co-incidentally, 2018 also saw her win her first ever major tournament when she clinched the French Open.
Ranked number two on the WTA tour, Simona has over 18 WTA singles titles. Besides boasting an impressive trophy cabinet, the Nike-sponsored athlete has also garnered $25 million in net worth.
Husband Or Dating Boyfriend Still?
As beautiful and athletic Simona is, it's surprising that men have yet to fight for her love -- or not in public, atleast.

Though the suspected lovebirds denied being an item to their friends, their actions told otherwise. They even got photographed vacationing during their trip to Italy.
Besides Radu, Simona previously had romantic ties with fellow Romanian tennis player, Horia TecÄƒu. Various media outlets cite Horia as her husband and even claim that the pair has a daughter together.
