Simona Halep is a Romanian national and professional tennis player. She is the current World No. 1 in the Women’s Singles tennis rankings, a position she initially accomplished in October 2017.

Going head to head against the 22-year-old Australian, Halep won four of the initial five games. However, the Aussie pulled nearer to the Romanian with her first, and solitary, break of serve in the sixth set, and held it for the length of the set to stay in touch.

And, in spite of the fact that Barty landed 71 percent of her first serves in the match, the World No.1 made her compensation when she was compelled to hit a second serve in the opening set, going 7-for-10 on those particular points.

The second set started in comparative fashion for the French Open 2018 champion, as she won the initial four games, and finally won two more to land her place in the Final.
