Simona Halep has been taking the junior tennis circuit by storm lately. The 17-year-old Romanian tennis player is widely regarded as one of the up-and-coming stars of professional tennis. She has already won numerous junior titles and this summer, she will attempt to make the field at Wimbledon. She is currently ranked 317th in the world, and she is still young enough to be in high school.
However, Halep feels that her 34DD breasts are currently holding her back on the tennis court, and she has declared that she will undergo breast reduction surgery later this year to correct the issue. Her plan is to have the surgery sometime this fall.
Halep claims that her large breasts make her uncomfortable when playing tennis. They weigh her down, which adversely impacts her reaction time.
While this may seem like a perfectly logical choice for a professional athlete, many of her male fans are shocked and outraged at her decision. They have even started an online petition to save her boobs. One fan has gone as far as to declare, “It will be a crime against nature.”
It is unbelievable that these fans could be so selfish. A woman’s decision to undergo breast reduction surgery is never taken lightly. On the contrary, for many women, it is a difficult decision that takes quite some time to arrive at. For these fans to expect that Halep should endure pain and sacrifice performance on the tennis court so that they could watch her DDs bounce up and down on TV is disgusting.
Personally, I applaud Halep for making this difficult decision, and I hope that the surgery helps her blossom into the tennis player that she has the potential to be. I only hope that her many adoring fans come around to their sensibilities and start supporting her decision as well.
