Artemon Apostu-Efremov (42 years old) trained Simona Halep (30 years old) for a year and a half, replacing Darren Cahill (56 years old) many times during the pandemic.
Simona Halep resigned from Artemon Apostu-Efremov in 2021, and the technician claimed at the time that the former WTA leader had no clear reason to interrupt the collaboration.
One year after his dismissal, “Arti” was asked if it is difficult to work with Simona Halep, and the coach who also collaborated with sportswomen such as Irina Begu or Gabriela Ruse offered a sharp answer.
“Is it hard to work with Simona Halep?” The coach fired “for no reason” by the Romanian woman answered without thinking
Cătălin Oprișan, the director of the show AS.ro LIVE, asked Artemon Apostu-Efremov directly: “Is it hard to work with Simona?”. The coach fired by Simona Halep suddenly replied: “No, she is very professional! No, the hat is down on the field! Note 10! I worked for a year and a half, it was a sensational experience. It has the capacity to assimilate the information excellently and to put it into practice ”.
Artemon Apostu-Efremov was a co-coach in Simona Halep’s staff and even became a major in tournaments such as Dubai or Prague, where Darren Cahill was unable to travel. Simona managed important performances with “Arti”, and the decision to remove her from the staff seemed a bizarre one.
Artemon Apostu-Efremov, after breaking up with Simona Halep: “I can’t find an obvious reason!”
Simona Halep’s former coach did not expect the athlete to give up her services: “I can’t find an obvious reason, but rather it is a collaboration that has come to an end, after many challenges related to both the competition program and restrictions of the pandemic.
Collaborating with a player of this caliber is a phenomenal experience and I hope I have managed to learn as much as I have learned being on this team. Darren (no. Darren Cahill) is a great coach and being with him was a major inspiration “, explained Artemon Apostu-Efremov after breaking up with Simona Halep.
