Radwanska has a decent record against Halep and leads their previous meetings 5-4. Their last match was in october 2015. That was on an indoor hard court and she won in straight sets. She leads 3-2 on hard courts.
I thought Konta’s power would give Radwanska some problems last night. Their match went to 3 sets but Radwanska took the third set 6-0. She had easily beaten Petkovic in her first match for the loss of just 1 game.
Halep hasn’t been tested so far. Straight sets wins over Beck and Gavrilova saw her being broken just once in each match.
Their hard court stats are pretty close this year. I think we have a chance of 3 sets but I have to favour Halep to take it. Back her if she is broken first.
