Date: Friday, 6 May, 2016
Start time: 19:00 UK
Simona Halep will face Samantha Stosur in Semifinal at WTA Mutua Madrid Open. The match will start around 19:00 UK time.
Simona Halep, number 7, will face Samantha Stosur which ranking is 23.
It’s not the perfect season so far for Simona Halep. She had an injury which results to her to miss many tournaments or to withdraw from them very soon.
So far this semifinal in Madrid is her best achievement for the season. She plays first for the season tournament on clay in Stuttgart where she loose in her first match against Laura Siegemund.
In Madrid, she finally shows her potential and beat Misaki Doi, Karin Knapp, Timea Bacsinszky and Irina-Camelia Begu.
Samantha Stosur also didn’t play very at the start of the season. She has 5 wins and 5 losses in hard. On clay, she shows another face and played already 12 matches from which she won 10 and lose 2 times. Her best performance this year was in the last tournament where she plays in Prague. She reached the final and lose it against Lucie Safarova with 3-6 6-1 6-4.
Samantha Stosur played already twice as games on clay as Simona Halep and in the last one she reaches the final. Head-to-head they are 3:3 but they had two matches on clay and Australian won them both with 2:0 sets so I think that she is more prepared at this time of the season and play very well against Halep on clay so she is my favorite for this clash and the odds for that are very tasty.
