Tennis – Australian Open 2019: Simona Halep Ready To Face Serena Williams
Simona Halep is prepared for the test of taking on the 23-time stupendous grand slam champion in Melbourne, and says that she no longer feels threatened about confronting Serena Williams and the Australian Open.
The world number one cruised through to the her fourth-round match with a 6-2 6-3 triumph over Serena William’s sister Venus, in a match that lasted only 77 minutes.
This win has now made a match-up between Serena and Halep, which will be a 10th time and first since the 2016 US Open, where Serena overcame Halep and recorder her 4th progressive success over her.
At present, Simona Halep trails 8-1 in the head-to-head matches, and although she admitted that she used to be scared by Williams, however now she is presently prepared to go up against the previous World No. 1.
