Maria Teresa Torro Flor v Simona Halep Live
World number four Simona Halep will face Maria Teresa Torro Flor in the third round of the French Open at Roland Garros as the Romanian bids to progress towards bigger things.
Halep is in great form at the present time and her chances of winning the grand slam has risen a great deal following Serena William’s exit from the same. Halep has been in scintillating form since 2013 which saw her rise into the top echelons of women’s tennis from absolutely nowhere.
There is plenty of power in her game which will hold her in good stead ahead of her crucial third round fixture against Torro Flor. The duo have never faced each other on court before which makes the fixture an even interesting one for the neutrals.
Simona Halep beat Heather Watson in straight sets in the second round – 6-2, 6-4 to be precise and showed great form in the game which will be a worrying sign for Torro Flor. The Romanian has won eight of her last ten games as well.
Maria Teresa Torro Flor has not been in great form to be brutally honest. She has exited her last three clay tournaments preceding the French Open in the first round and she has been edging her opponents out in the current tournament.
She got past her opponent 7-6(4), 6-2 in the first round while she struggled against Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round before turning things around in a 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 win. Torro Flor definitely needs to up her game if she has to have any chance against the brutal Halep.
