Halep has won both their previous matches. Their last one was in January last season. She won in straight sets on a hard court.
Bacsinszky has played a good tournament with straight sets wins over Gasparyan and Ivanovic but when she lost the opening set 6-2 to Radwanska in the last round it looked like she was going home. Radwanska was having a lot of problems on serve.
Halep has not dropped a set so far. Her serve looked a little shaky at times against Watson especially at the start. Bacsinszky will get chances in the early games and she has to take them if she is to have any chance.
Back Halep if she is broken first. She starts around 1.40.
