Halep attended 37-year-old Venus Williams' straight-set victory over 36-year-old sister and new mother Serena on Monday night.
Though she's arguably the greatest tennis champion of all time, with 23 Grand Slam titles, Serenasaid she has a long way to go before she's back to her usual dominant form. Halep reclaimed the ranking just before Indian Wells.

No one would dispute that.
Venus broke Serena at love in the sixth game for a 4-2 lead in the first set. She was then slated to take on Venus.

"It's definitely not less disappointing", Serena said. "I wish it were, but it's not". Then I wouldn't be who I am.
"I didn't really feel comfortable out there today (and) didn't really get my game going the way I wanted to", the Danish victor said.
"I have a lot to improve on", she said.
"I haven't played in over a year", Serena said in quotes on the WTA's official website. My room for improvement is incredible. "I don't want to go backwards". So I have just got to keep saying each tournament my goal is just to be better than the last.
Venus still has to go forward in in Indian Wells, whereas many of their previous tussles have taken place in finals and thus would have seen the victor hoist the trophy.
Venus thus wasn't dwelling on her win Monday. Halep will have to get past unseeded Croatian Martic, who has yet to drop a set so far.
If Williams makes it through her quarterfinal match, she will again play back-to-back matches Thursday and Friday.
