Simona Halep vs Alize Cornet: Prediction
Simona will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 241-103 and was 12-5 on the surface last season while finishing the 2021 season with a record of 24-10 across all surfaces. Alize will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 200-162 and was 13-12 on the surface last season and had a 27-27 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2021 and the little of the 2022 season, it will be an uphill task for Cornet to take down the in-form Halep who has looked flawless so far this week.
Prediction: Simona Halep to win in straight-sets.
