Over the past 30 years, Taiwanese Su-Wei Hsieh has been holding for two years among the top 50 players in the world, mid-year finding it right on the 29th WTA.Not necessarily a grass-cheerleader, Taiwanese can boast an optimum success at Wimbledon in 2017. This year, the Eastbourne tournament is the second on the turf that it tackles, in Birmingham going through the first round, eliminating -a little surprising Sabalenka, but being eliminated by Strycova in the second round.Su-Wei Hsieh has already begun at Eastbourne, disputing a first game against Camila Georgi, which he placed in 3 sets after more than 2 hours of play.Coincidence makes last year to meet Halep in Wimbledon, winning the lead after Simona led 5-2 in the decisive set.
After the disappointment at Roland Garros, where she was eliminated in quarters, Simona debuts on grass this year at Eastbourne in preparation for the Wimbledon tournament.With a semifinals and two quarters at the All England Club, the romanian hopes to make a good performance this year to keep in the top 10. It is the second place in Eastbourne for the Romanian, in 2017 stopping in the quarters, after a match against Danish Wozniaki.Against Su-Wei Hsieh, Simona has played 2 times in his career, with a score of 1-1. Halep has a rematch after the dramatic dropout last year in London.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Su-Wei Hsieh vs Halep
Even if it is at the first grass this year, I think Simona will be on the pitch to take revenge for Wimbledon last year’s elimination. Simona’s special ambition is well known when he enters the field and I think he will count decisively against a tenacious player with a very dangerous game on the grass.
