If you follow Simona Halep on Twitter, you sure must have had a look at her ‘following’ section. For all she follows is just two people: Mark Selby and Darren Cahill.

While Cahill doesn’t come as a surprise as he happens to be her coach, the same can’t be said about the other name.

England’s Selby is a three-time World Snooker Champion. But what has Halep got to do with the sport?

“I apologise. I say that I have no idea how you play snooker,” the Romanian said when asked about it following her 6-1 6-3 win over Elina Svitolina in the Wimbledon semi-finals on Thursday.

She added: “But I appreciate him. 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.”

Meanwhile, Halep will look to win her second Grand Slam title when she locks horns with American legend Serena Williams in the all-important clash on Saturday.

What’s your prediction? Let us know in the comments below.
