?? Roland Garros, QF Prediction
?? (1) Simona Halep vs. ?? (12) Angelique Kerber
I’m going to give the slight edge to Halep here. The most obvious advantage for Halep is that she is favoured by the surface. Taking a quick look at the results of the pair on clay in recent times and it is clear Halep has a huge advantage on clay. The pair play very similarly, two of the best counter-punchers on tour. On clay, it is usually the more aggressive player or player making the moves that gets the win in matches like this and I suspect that will be Halep. Halep has more firepower from the baseline and behind her serve and is better at dictating play and constructing points on clay. Expect Halep to win in a tight match.
