Simona Halep is one of the best women's tennis player in the game right now. The rankings reflect that. She is currently ranked No.1 in the world. But early in the career, she faced an unlikely hurdle. Her breasts. She was deeply unhappy with the large size of her breasts, which was affecting her movement on and off the court. Halep was measured at34DD. In 2009, at the age of 17, she had a bold decision to make. And she did not hesitate one bit in making it. Halep said in an interview how her breasts were affecting her game, "My ability to react quickly was worse and my breasts made me uncomfortable.It’s the weight that troubles me. My ability to react quickly, my breasts make me uncomfortable when I play." Halep then also dropped the bombshell that tennis wasn't the only reason why she got the size of her breasts reduced. In fact, tennis be damned, she would have reduced them even if she wasn't a sportsperson. Simona Halep before and after her breast reduction surgery.

I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn’t been a sportswoman.” The surgery meant that the size of her breasts reduced from 34DD to a 34C. The decision turned out to be a right one. Even her then-coachWim Fissette agreed. He told the New York Post on the issue, "I did not know her then, but I have seen some photos.She took that decision and it was a good one. I understand that it’s what a lot of people know her for. In the Belgian newspapers it is the same thing.But let’s hope she will win a grand slam and then they will start talking about that instead." The coach had wise words. Halep certainly proved them wrong by shifting the topic of conversation from the size of her breasts to her tennis skills. Even though she is yet to win a Slam, Halep has gone close and is the current Queen of the tennis charts, ranked No.1. How one decision changes a career!
