Tennis star Simona Halepís fans bemoan loss of her 34DD bust!

London, June 22: Romanian tennis player Simona Halep's decision to reduce her 34DD breasts to a more modest 34C left many of her fans heartbroken.

Halep, 19, had revealed her decision to fans before going under the knife and many petitioned her in an attempt to persuade her to reconsider.

But for then 17-year-old Halep, the extra weight on her chest was uncomfortable and caused severe back pain, which affected her performance on the court, leaving her ranked at 500 in the world.

"It's the weight that troubles me. My ability to react quickly, my breasts make me uncomfortable when I play," the Daily Mail quoted her as explaining to fans then.

"I don't like them in my everyday life, either. I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn't been a sportswoman," she added.

She underwent extensive breast reduction surgery, and she currently ranks 57 in the world, and is playing in her first Wimbledon.
