Downed to No. 7 in the WTA rankings, Simona Halep crosses a fairly bad season for his standings, with no tournament earned until this part of the season.In the first round of Wimbledon he managed to win a minimum of sets in front of Aliaksandrei Sasnovich, but the match was very balanced, in the second round defeated Mihaela Buzarnescu in the decisive set.In the third round he managed the best match of this Wimbledon edition, passing by Victoria Azarenka after an excellent match, score 6-3 6-1, while in the optimi stopped the beautiful evolution of adolescent Cori Gauff, defeating 2-0 in sets.
Former No. 23 WTA 2 years ago, Shuai Zhang has now descended to 50th WTA, the results in the simple not-so-solid test, but he has managed to take the Australian Open title in the women’s doubles test.The current season did not bring him any remarkable results, reaching only the finals of an ITF tournament.Wimbledon managed the best result of his career in such a tournament, losing a single set in his previous four matches against Dayana Yastremska in the finals.

🎾Advanced and statistics
Simona Halep is for the fourth time in his career and for the third time in the last four seasons in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. Romanca managed to pass this stage only in the 2014 edition when he was defeated in the semifinals by Eugenie Bouchard.With a single training tour between Roland Garros and Wimbledon, the Romance has done more than honorable so far in this competition.She started the tournament with a victory against Aliaksandrei Sasnovich and continued with another one in front of Mihaela Buzarnescu, in front of which she lost the only set so far. In tour 3 lost just 4 games in front of Azarenkai, so in optimal to win it with a double 6-3 on one of the big surprises of this edition, Cori Gauff.
Shuai Zhang needed 6 Wimbledon editions to win his first victory, and now it seems that China’s sportsman stops from winning matches at the All England Club.Zhang had a very tough tournament start, but he’s outstripped his morale right now. In the first round it was 6-4 6-0 by Caroline Garcia, and in round 3 passed by another favorite, Caroline Wozniacki. Between her two she faced Yannina Wickmayer, the sporting qualifier.In the finals optimals he started again with the second chance, this time against Dayanei Yastremska. Zhang managed to win the first set with 6-4 and after losing to 1 second, he was 6-2 in the decisive.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Simona Halep vs Shuai Zhang
Both players cross an excellent form in this tournament, but I rely on Simone Halep’s superior experience in such higher stages of Grand Slam tournaments, being very close to getting the best result in such a tournament. Even though Shuai Zhang lost only one set in the game, Simona Halep seems very well adapted to this area this season, and the gameplay style of Chinese players can not surprise the Romanian.
Prediction Today: Simona Halep
Halep played very well, especially in the last two games at this tournament. Her opponent, however, showed an equally good form, passing through the red-hot players in her way to the quarter-finals. Romanca is seen as a great favorite, but I think it will have a lot of work against a sport that moves very well and strikes strongly from any position.
Bet Tips: +8.5 games in the first set
