Simona Halep Form


Simona Halep started the year with a quarter-final exit at the Adelaide International and semi-final defeat to Garbine Muguruza in the Australian Open.

The Romanian bounced back by winning the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, taking out Ons Jabeur, Aryna Sabalenka, Jennifer Brady and Elena Rybakina.

Halep won the Prague Open title on her return to action, getting past Polona Hercog, Barbora Krejčíková, Magdalena Fręch and Irina-Camelia Begu before defeating Elise Mertens 6-2 7-5 in the final.

In Rome two weeks ago, Halep recorded comfortable straight sets wins over Jasmine Paolini and Dayana Yastremska. Yulia Putintseva retired in the quarter-final to send Halep through to face Muguruza, who she defeated 6-3 4-6 6-4 on Sunday. The final against Karolina Pliskova was a non-affair with Halep winning the first set 6-0 and being a break up in the second when the Czech retired.
