Right on cue as Wimbledon finalist Halep follows snooker champ

Published by , Thursday 07/11/19 18:00

Simona Halep became the first Romanian woman to reach the Wimbledon final on Friday but then found herself answering questions -- about snooker.

The 27-year-old, who eased past Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-3 to reach her fifth Slam final, has 288,000 followers on Twitter.

However, she only follows two -- former coach Darren Cahill and three-time snooker champion Mark Selby.

"I have no idea how you play snooker. But I appreciate him," said Halep.

"He's been in Romania a few times. I met him. Also I have a snooker ball signed from him. That's why I follow him."

Englishman Selby won the world snooker title in 2014, 2016 and 2017.
