Heather Watson v Simona Halep Live
Simona Halep will be up against Heather Watson in the second round of the French Open at Roland Garros on Thursday, May 29.
Halep stormed into the second round with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Alisa Kleybanova. The Romanian all power Halep dispatched her opponent in the first round, winning the first eleven games on course to winning the match.
She was absolutely ruthless against the Russian Kleybanova much like she was in 2013 when she won 6 major titles in the year to storm into the top echelons of the women’s game. Halep is one of the top contenders to the French Open title this year on current form and most neutrals are predicting a Serena Williams – Halep final for the ongoing tournament.
Simona Halep looked completely in her stride as she struck some powerful groundstrokes the other day on course to her victory. Heather Watson will have her work cut out against a truly magnificent opponent who looks to be in absolutely fantastic form currently.
Watson overcame her Czech opponent Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova in the first round in straight sets, winning 6-3, 6-4. Watson has won nine matches in a row now and 23 out of her past 30 wins and will represent a much tougher challenge for the sturdy Romanian.
