Simona Halep’s ongoing trial has been in the spotlight for a long time now. While the Romanian tennis star has a major similarity with Serena in the form of Patrick Mouratoglou, Ilie decided to use it against her. Mouratoglou recently claimed responsibility stating that his team unknowingly provided the supplement that led to Halep testing positive for the banned substance roxadustat.

Drawing the points together, Nastase created blame against Serena, stating, “I think that they (No. Mouratoglou’s staff) also included Serena Williams and others. If they gave it to Simona, they certainly gave it to the other players with whom she worked. I think so, I don’t think it’s Simona Halep is the first to receive this from Mouratoglou.”

Former Grand Slam winner Ilie Nastase faced severe consequences as he gave offensive remarks during a Fed Cup tie between Great Britain and Romania. As the tennis player used foul language against co-players, he had to face a ban from any official roles in tennis until 2021 and a fine of $10,000.

Nastase ignited a controversy with Serena when he publicly made a racist comment about the potential skin color of Serena Williams’ unborn child while the Romanian No. 1 Simona Halep was discussing her. “Let’s see what color it has,” Nastase said. “Chocolate with milk?” His unacceptable comments not only invited immense hate but also brought authoritative actions against him.
