Marina Erakovic v Simona Halep Live
World no. 2 Simona Halep of Romania will go up against the unseeded Marina Erakovic of New Zealand, in the first round of the 2015 US Open, on Tuesday afternoon in New York. This will be the first time that the two players will go head to head on the tour.
Halep has had an excellent season so far, and her record on the hard surface has been simply impeccable. She has won the WTA Dubai and Indian Wells earlier this year, which she followed with a run to the semifinal in Miami Masters, losing to Serena Williams. Her US Open series too was along the similar lines, emerging as the runner up in Rogers Cup and Cincinnati Masters, losing to Belinda Bencic and Williams respectively.
Erakovic on the other hand has been struggling a lot with her form off lately. She has struggled to qualify for the WTA New Haven and Cincinnati most recently. In fact, this has been the case for her for the majority of the season, with hardly any considerable performances. For this match, Halep is certainly the favorite one, owing to her momentum and the experience. A win in straight sets here is definitely on the cards.
