Simona Halep inspired France’s Alize Cornet to do something similar. Just like Halep, Alize Cornet is also not known for her serving abilities. Thus, she came up with her own idea of fundraising. According to the French, she will donate $50 for every drop shot win in the ongoing Australian Open. No wonder, Alize Cornet and Simona Halep won everyone’s heart by making such a great gesture.

Simona Halep defeated Harriet Dart 6-2, 6-4 in her second round Australian Open 2020 match.
