Kateryna Bondarenko v Simona Halep Live
World no. 2 Simona Halep will go up against the Ukrainian qualifier Kateryna Bondarenko, in the round two of the US Open 2015 on Thursday afternoon in New York.
Both the players started their run in the tournament on an excellent note, having won their respective matches in straight sets. Simona Halep moved past Marina Erakovic, while Kateryna Bondarenko defeated Yulia Putintseva. Simona Halep has had a brilliant season so far, having won three titles already. Moreover, she came to the Flushing Meadows with a lot of momentum and confidence, having emerged as the runner-up in Cincinnati Masters and Rogers Cup, losing to Serena Williams and Belinda Bencic respectively. She had a similar run earlier this year in the Miami Masters too, where she lost to Williams in the semifinal. On the other hand, Kateryna Bondarenko has spent her US Open series in unsuccessful attempts to move past the opening round. Her best run in the recent weeks came in WTA Istanbul, where she was the quarterfinalist. She has also played in a couple of ITF events, but wasn’t much successful there.
For this match, Simona Halep is certainly the favorite one. Given her momentum and form, she should be able to win this one in straight sets.
