Head to Head
Serena Williams 4:1 Simona Halep
This is going to be sixth meet between Simona and Serena on tennis court. Women’s world champion American Williams has been leading with 4:1 score over Romanian Simona Halep. In previous meet Serena defeated Simona by 6-3, 6-0 in the final of WTA Championships 2014. Romania’s beauty won only math against Williams in 2014 in a firing style by 6-0, 6-2. Hence she can get inspiration from that win to beat Serena once again in today’s semifinal clash.
Simona defeated Carla Suarez in quarter-final match by 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 to get into semi-finals of Indian Wells Masters. In that match Halep lost first set to Carla but came back strongly in next two sets and registered victory.
Serena Williams beat Swiss star Timea Bacsinszky in the quarter-final match by 7-5, 6-3 to seal semifinal berth. Timea was in good form and won two tournaments this year, but she couldn’t find way to beat top class Serena.
Before semifinal against Halep, Serena praised Romanian star and said, “What I take out most is to be ready. I expect her to be playing an incredible game. I don’t think I was necessarily ready for that. Now I’m ready for her to be the great player that she is capable of being.”
