Danielle Rose Collins v Simona Halep Live
Romanian tennis star Simona Halep has been drawn against newbie Danielle Rose Collins in the first round at the US Open this year. Simona Halep will be confident of success as she prepares for yet another assault at a grand slam title this year.
Simona Halep had been phenomenal at the French Open earlier this year as she marauded her way past tough opponents and reached the final at the Roland Garros. Sadly, it was not to be as Maria Sharapova played some of her best tennis in the finals to deny Simona Halep at the final hurdle.
The Romanian star took her form into the Wimbledon lawn tennis championships and surged into the semi-finals. Although Simona Halep looked good for yet another finals appearance, she was beaten to it by Canadian sensation Eugenie Bouchard on the grass court.
Although Simona Halep’s game is as good as anyone else’s on the women’s circuit on clay or grass, the Romanian has found success hard to come by on the hard court. Simona Halep lost to Sharapova at Cincinnati in the third round while she was sent packing in the first round itself at New Haven.
Simona Halep needs to add to her game if she wants to get better results on the hard court. However, progressing into the second round should not be a problem as she will be up against Danielle Rose Collins, who has only played one game of professional women’s tennis till date. The match in question ended in a straight set defeat for the American youngster.
