PREDICTION FOR Simona Halep – Aryna Sabalenka :
-Simona Halep win 1.75
Simone’s tour at Shenzhen continues and so she managed to get past Duan and reach the quarterfinals. The match in this phase of the competition is a difficult one because Sabalenka is going through a very good time. It is worth watching this match and we are holding the fists of Simona in the game he will play tomorrow morning, no earlier than 9am.
Ying-Ying Duan was a much more difficult adversary for Halep than bookmakers expected, given that the Chinese player won the first set, but the Romani returned and lost only 3 games to the end.
With this victory, Simo reached for the second time in the semifinals of the competition after winning the tour in 2015.
At the best career classification, Aryna continued the excellent form shown at the end of 2017 this year, thus registering not less than 7 consecutive victories on hard outdoor (5 last year, 2 this year).
Monica Niculescu and Danka Kovinic have not even managed to win a set against the Belarusian player who is going through the best career moment.
Her tour of this tournament is unexpected, especially if I take into consideration that she is at her first career.
The Shenzhen quarterfinals will be the first straight run between Simona and Aryna, so it will be very exciting to see who will make it for the first time.
My hint Simona Halep – Aryna Sabalenka
It is certain that the Romance is the favorite of this game, being the player with more experience, but Sabalenka goes through an excellent form and can put it in difficulty. I bet on a balanced match debut, where everyone will win their first game on their own.
Halep started the games with Gibbs and Duan, losing 4 games in the first match and even losing the first set in the eighth fight, so I do not expect to force the first two games but will be more relaxed.
Sabalenka did not lose his job in the match in any of the matches in Shenzhen and I think it will still look like it is in a very good shape and will keep Simone’s chest at least at the beginning of the dispute.
