Tournament: WTA Wimbledon, England.
Experienced Halep will meet with Cori Gauff in frames of the 1/8 finals of Wimbledon on the 8th of July. The American has already presented several sensations on the tournament. What should we expect from the match?
After 3-sets difficult match of the second round on Wimbledon against Buzărnescu (6-3, 4-6, 6-2) Simona Halep in the next game didn’t notice on court Victoria Azarenka (6-3, 6-1).
In the game with the Belarusian tennis-player, we saw the reliable game of Halep on the baseline, the minimum quantity of unforced errors (only 9 unforced errors with 13 winners). Azarenka has made a lot of mistakes and often took the unjustified risk.
Game with Azarenka showed us the current readiness of Simona Halep for moving on the tournament grid which is now very favorable to her. So, the bets made on Simona are very profitable.
One of the most perspective juniors (the 15-year-old American Cory Gauff) this year is taking a shot at adult tournaments. Until the current success on Wimbledon, she had demonstrated quite good performances on ITF at the adult level.
Gauff is moving on the tournament grid of Wimbledon from qualification. She has spent six matches and got only one given set. The tennis-player has passed over Venus Williams (6-4, 6-4), Rybáriková (6-3, 6-3), Herzog (3-6, 7-6, 7-5).
Gauff was close to defeat after the last match against Herzog, she has made a lot of mistakes but she was more reliable than her rivals in several major matches. The match in many respects showed that the tennis-player has already gained her limit.
The tennis-players didn’t meet with each other
Gauff has spent 6 matches on Wimbledon and has lost only one set to her rivals
Halep has lost only one set in three spent matches on Wimbledon
The matches of the second round were different for tennis-players. Halep could improve her skills in comparison with the previous games. Gauff has spent the difficult match with Herzog. As a matter of Halep’s experience and what she has shown us during the game against Azarenka, we think, it is worth expecting the convincing victory of the Romanian tennis-player.
Much like, that Gauff has left all his energy on the court during the game with Herzog. We offer the prediction on the victory of the favorite with a handicap (-).
Our tip: Simona Halep (Asian Handicap -5) – 1.67 Pinnacle
