Halep too short, she struggles against players of Sloane's defensive (or build up play, however you chose to look at it) game, such as your Wozniacki's, Radwanska's and Svitolina's, winner will come down to who makes the least unforced errors.

It should be close, I can't see any train. Halep probably in 3. If she loses it's probably the PONR in her slam career.

@bartoli_marion you should be ashamed of yourself for your blatant bias as a COMMENTATOR (not coach). Your complete imbalance of commentary and respect shown toward Hallop over Stephens shows why you should not be a commentator of this game. In your words please “go go go” away.

Cahill seems to have got through to her that she's the fittest player on tour right now, and with clay being so attritional, even if she's losing as long as she doesn't give up and grinds away she'll break them all down
