This is a quarterfinal match from the Rome tournament(clay) between two Romanian players Alexandra Dulgheru and Simona Halep.
They have never face each other so far so this is going to be their first encounter.
Dulgheru seems to have found her past form after a series of long injuries and after the tennis I've seen her produce here in Rome I think she is going to have a very good chance in this match. So far she defeated Sabino 6-3, 6-1 and Tsurenko 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in the qualif. stages. After getting to the main draw she defeated Doi 6-7(2), 6-3, 6-3, Safarova 1-6, 6-4, 7-6(6) and Makarova 6-4, 6-3.
On the other side Halep defeated Riske 6-3, 6-0 and Venus Williams 6-2, 6-1. Her performance against Venus was very good but I'm not so sure she will produce the same tennis against Dulgheru.
Usually in these type of matches where two compatriots are facing there is a feeling of a long match waiting to happen. That being said Dulgheru has more than proven herself this week and I believe she can come out and win at least a set in this one. The most likely outcome is that she will win the first set and eventually lose the match because she has played a lot of matches and that might get to her if it's going to be a 3 setter.
