This is the second first time matchup this tournament after Barty v Bencic yesterday. The other two matchups that haven't occurred between these top 8 players is Andreescu v Barty and Andreescu v Kvitova.Andreescu v Halep for the first time, this should be good.
Because she's the tour leader in titles this year, because she's the tour leader in aces this year, because she's the #2 in the world, because she's a former #1, because she's made the SF of 3 of the 4 slams... the list goes on.i dont know why people are still surprised about Pliskova going slam less season by season. she doesnt have mentally what it takes to stand up against the best on tours whnen it really matters
they had problem with stronger girls whom are old now so they were able to step up once they were gone but pliskova has problem with her own generation so i doubt she will be able to beat players like andreescu, osaka, barty.People said the exact same thing about Wozniacki and Halep being unable to stand up when it counts but they ended up breaking the curse. I still don't see Pliskova ending her career slamless (I mean look how easy Barty's draw was to a slam title)!
Pretty sure that's not it considering her last 3 slam losses this year were to: Martic, Muchova and Konta. Her only loss to a top 15 player this year was Osaka at the AO.they had problem with stronger girls whom are old now so they were able to step up once they were gone but pliskova has problem with her own generation so i doubt she will be able to beat players like andreescu, osaka, barty.
Yeah, that's how Simona won grand slams... She hasn't played much in the last 3 months, it's normal she feels less confident now.Andreescu hit a tweener between the legs shot! I pulling for Andreescu against Halep now!Halep always needs continuous coaching it seems! A robot that needs programming!
