Simona Halep vs Ajla Tomljanovic Predictions


Halep recorded a very efficient win in the first round but against another Australian opponent in Tomljanovic, she will have to work harder.

The Romanian should still win, but Tomljanovic is a powerful player who has taken sets from Halep in three of their four previous meetings.

  • Halep improved to 24-10 at the Australian Open with her win over Cabrera
  • The World no. 2 only failed to return three of Cabrera’s serves in the 59-minute match
  • Tomljanovic has won 3 of her last 12 matches
  • The Australian served six aces in her last match and won 73% of points behind her first serve

The first three matches between Halep and Tomljanovic went the distance, but their most recent encounter was a 6-4, 7-5 win over Tomljanovic in Adelaide in January 2020.

Simona Halep Form


Halep was defeated in emphatic fashion in the quarterfinals of her warm-up event, losing 2-6, 1-6 to Anastasia Potapova.

The world no. 2 bounced back superbly to record a dominant win over Lizette Cabrera in the first round of the Australian Open. Halep hit 14 winners and 18 unforced errors as she took just 59 minutes to beat Cabrera, saving five of six break points she faced.

Cabrera only managed three unreturned serves against Halep, however. The more experienced and powerful Tomljanovic should do better.

Ajla Tomljanovic Form


Tomljanovic, a talented ballstriker who has had very bad luck with injuries throughout her career, had a poor end to 2020. The Australian lost all seven of the matches she played after the six-month shutdown of the sport.

Tomljanovic snapped that losing streak when she beat Zhu Lin in Abu Dhabi, but she went on to lose to Aryna Sabalenka and then Alize Cornet at last week’s Gippsland Trophy.

The world no. 72 had an excellent win over Misaki Doi in the first round. She served six aces (as well as six double faults) and hit 20 winners for 19 unforced errors, beating Doi 6-2, 6-1 in 71 minutes.
