Halep impressed once again defeating comprehensively Samantha Stosur in 3 sets: 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. She has controlled the game since its inception, hit some turbulence in the second set, beeing under pressure at 5-4 for the aussie, she lost her serve, this beeing the only break of the second set, but she bounced back in style and in the decisive she overpowered her opponent, winning easily 6-2. Everything seems to go for her, her confidence is skyhigh and I'm sure she is craving to play against Serena because Halep nowadays seems more pacient, she knows that eventhough she will lose it's not the end of the world, but just another opportunity to learn something new and improve her game. Against the aussie her service has been excelent, she had 77% at first serve, she hit more aces than Stosur, and that will give her much confidence heading into tonight's game. Maybe Serena will once again overpower her opponent but Simona has some credetials to make me think that she won't go down without a fight, so my bet is that we'll have a much closer contest than the odds suggest.
