Halep vs Wozniacki by Jessica Pare

Halep this year is simply tired mentally!


After an incredible 2014 where she reached the final slam, final Master and several titles won without considering the hardships of the Fed Cup, now for her came a moment of relaxation where her game suffers.


Despite this competitive spirit, the will to win and the strength of this amazing tennis player in the field remain unchanged and for this reason I want to trust her against Wozniacki that did not seem to me the Wozniacki of the final season in 2014.

Trust me, she's not mentally tired.
What people just don't see is that Halep took some decisions about what her gameplay should become and in this period she is adding in realtime new parts or new focuses in her game. These changes cannot come smoothly and this is whay people see her different that she used to be a year ago. But the fact that she's actually dissasembling and rebuilding her game while still wining (12 wins and 1 loss in WTA in 2015) is quite remarkable in itself, I'd say :)
So yes, she's different than she used to be but that's part of a masterplan, not a sign of mental

My opinion is that today will face a two similar player on the field! Running a lot defense a lot and sometimes hits a big winner! Wozniacki played very good tennis but sometimes struggling with her serve! double foults or easy handle serve...on other side that she is a very good receiver and hitting (especially the second serves) to the empty corner so she dont give a chance for the server! Halep is a very good player too and maybe once (when Serena will finish her career) can reach the world number 1 but she need to work a lot on it! I expect here a very tight match and the winner will be w

@Khum Thanks for your nice comment that I agree but I still think that stress is a factor difficult to manage for a tennis player that finds herself suddenly a top player and a reference to her nation!

Too much responsibility in no time! Just be able to handle all of this she will return the infernal machine of all time!

Having seen Halep in 2015, it seems shes experimenting to much. It will be a tight 3 sets match i think, with Wozzys condition as a benefit. I believe Wozniacki will win 2-1. Good luck however

I aree with that.
But tha's not the main issue right now in Halep's tennis :)

I like the over here ;)

@ GG Thanks for your opinion elaborate, is much appreciated here!
I believe that the game will be from baseline so equal 50% and 50% but if Wozniacki has an advantage on the diagonal of the backhand Halep definitely has an advantage on the diagonal of forehand where can find many easy winners!

We'll see who will be more shining in the rally anyway Halep has variations to beat Wozniacki.

The Danish prefers to play from the bottom, if Halep will call her often to the net i think can lose consistency in the long run! ;)

I'm waiting to see what will bring the more agressive gameplay that Halep is working on.
For sure it won't be a short match ;)
