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.After starting the season with a quarter-final at the Australian Open, she was very close to winning the Doha tournament, defeated by Elise Mertens.It continued the year with a semifinal in Miami, the final of the Madrid tournament, where she was defeated by Kiki Bertens, while Roland Garros was defeated by Amanda Anisimova in the quarterfinals.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 and in the second round defeated Mihaela Buzarnescu in the decisive set.
Having suffered many injuries and making a long-term competitive break, the Belarusian player seems to have returned to a very good career, currently occupying the 40th WTA.The best result of the year won him in the Monterrey tournament where he played the Monterrey final, and the clay came out only through the quarterfinals in Rome.On the grass at Wimbledon he has won 2 wins in a minimum of sets against Alize Cornet, respectively Alja Tomljanovic, extremely clear.
The two players have met so far 4 times, the score being equal, 2-2, and the last game was held at Wimbledon in 2017, when Simona scored 7-6-6-2.
2.Advanced and statistics
Simona Halep has just equaled her performance last year from this tournament, so she definitely will not lose any points in the WTA standings. Last year was defeated in this phase by Su Wei Hsieh, and now her opponent will be Viktoria Azarenka.Halep started the tour very hard. In the first game he finished in two sets of lunges, ended 6-4 7-5 by Aliaksandra Sasnovich, succeeding to return to the second set from 3-5. In the second round there was an even harder match against Mihaela Buzarnescu, having the decisive need to pass this.Prior to this tournament, Halep played on grass only at Eastbourne, where he was defeated by Angelique Kerber in quarters, Kerber being the Wimbledon title holder.
Viktoria Azarenka is present for the 13th time at Wimbledon. The Belarusian sportsman never won this tournament, but he came in two rounds in the semifinals. Last year she was eliminated in the second round by Karolina Pliskova.This tour has started very hard. In the first round 6-4 6-4 of Alize Cornet crossed, and in the second round lost only 2 games in front of Ajla Tomljanovic, passing by the Australian athlete in less than an hour of play.Prior to Wimbledon, the former WTA leader has only rolled out on grass in Mallorca, a tournament that was defeated in the first round by Caroline Garcia.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Simona Halep vs Victoria Azarenka
The match announces a very balanced one, as betting houses do, but Victoria Azarenka seems much better than Simona. Romanca has had much more disputed matches so far, while Bielorus was much more expeditious during the tournament. So I bet on Victoria Azarenka at this meeting, and she will dominate the ball exchanges behind the pitch, tilting the balance in his favor.
Prediction Today: Simona Halep
The two meet for the 4th time, both of them managing two wins. Simona impressed her in the last two games, including the only one that took place here in the finals of the final of the 2017 edition. None of the players started as a favorite in this match, so I choose to bet on an over-at- this game.
