Simona Halep begins the 2019 season with the participation in the 16-day tournament in Sydney. Romanca is preparing to evolve somewhat later in January at the Australian Open’s first big slam tournament, and Australian capital competition is the perfect opportunity for the WTA leader to practice the blows.
He had a dream comeback season, winning his first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros. In addition, he also scored victories at the finals in Shenzhen and Montreal.
He comes back after a rather ugly injury that kept her away from the field late last season, and it is not clear if 100% is being recovered at the moment.
He is in the third place here, after three seasons he managed to participate in the semifinal, which he lost.
At this point, he leads the WTA ranking.
He is present for the second time at this tournament after last year’s final, but he gave it to Kerber.
The last season was the one in which the Australian game exploded in terms of efficiency, imposing its style in many tournaments.
This year has already eliminated a title favorite, Ostapenko, and now has become a serious candidate for conquering the first trophy of the season.
He currently occupies the 15th WTA, position he has finished the previous season.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Simona Halep vs Ashleigh Barty
Australian is slightly favored at this time, due to the physical state of Halep.
Ashleigh has to defend his points here last year, and more than that, he has a rematch to our player.
Simona will not be able to force and clearly does not want to do it, because a new injury could endanger the season.
I’m expecting a solid match made by young Barty, who thinks she will.
