She was leading from sets and breaks when Halef had a panic attack. Halep, a two-time Grand Slam champion, said that I do not know how to handle it. This has never happened before. I really don’t know why it happened. Because I was on edge and playing well. But, it happened and I lost. I was unable to focus.
