Simona Halep v Angelique Kerber Live
One of the more intriguing contests in the Wimbledon Round of 16 will see Romanian Simona Halep play against German Angelique Kerber. This will be the 5th meeting between the players, Simona Halep winning 3 and Angelique Kerber winning 1.
Both players came into this tournament highly rated, Simona Halep as 5th seed, and Angelique Kerber as 4th. They are also inseparable in the current WTA Rankings, Simona Halep in 5th and Angelique Kerber in 4th. The 2014 French Open finalist, comes into this game in fine form. On her run to the Round of 16, she defeated the likes of Anna Schmiedlova (6-4 6-1), Francesca Schiavone (6-1 6-1), Kiki Bertens (6-4 6-3), and Madison Keys (6-7(5) 6-4 6-3). The most recent defeat for the 5th seed came at the hands of Samantha Stosur at Roland Garros (7-6(0) 6-3). Angelique Kerber has been in ruthless form in this competition, winning all her games in straight sets. She's defeated the likes of Laura Robson (6-2 6-2), Varvara Lepchenko (6-1 6-4), Carina Witthoeft (7-6(11) 6-1), and Misaki Doi (6-3 6-1). The most recent defeat for the 4th seed came at the hands of Carla Suarez Navarro in the Birmigham Open (6-4 1-6 7-5).
This should be a keenly contested affair, but Angelique Kerber has more Grand Slam experience and I expect this experience to help her win this game in three sets.
