Tennis Prediction of the Day Halep vs Jabeur
Simona is a definite favorite of this party, because she has the advantage of experience.
In addition, she is a much more talented player, she also has a very good service and she does excellent in rallies.
Jabeur is a morale player, he can easily lose when he gives away a few points for free, as we saw in the duel with Riske.
However, I think Ons will try to prove that she is a potential champion, so I choose a handicap in her favor.
Prediction Today: Ons Jabeur +5.5 games
Simona Halep played very well at the busy Australian Open, and it is to be seen how she will be presented here where she is the big favorite at the trophy.
His service worked this year, and as a double mistake he was very good, having 3 with Putintseva, 1 with Mertens, 1 with Anett Kontaveit or 1 with Muguruza in a long and tense match.
Ons Jabeur also performed relatively well in the double chapter this year, although he has 7 with Garcia and 5 with Wozniacki.
But here in the first match he made quite a lot of double mistakes, 5, in a match that is long.
So I think Jabeur will make several double mistakes, my prognosis going on this idea at a quote offered by Betfair.
