Simona Halep vs. Ajla Tomljanovic, Roland Garros R1 Prediction

???? Roland Garros, R1 Prediction
?? (3) Simona Halep vs. ?? Ajla Tomljanovic

Simona Halep faces a serious challenge as she begins her title defense at Roland Garros with a tough first round match against Ajla Tomljanovic. The eyes of the tennis world are on Halep heading int this match to see how she deals with defending a major title for the first time, Ostapenko failed dismally at the same task 12 months ago in Paris with a first round exit, will Halep suffer the same fate?

I think Tomljanovic has a decent chance here, she will make this match very competitive but untimely I have to side with Halep. Tomljanovic has the type of powerful yet versatile game that can challenge Halep on this surface but Halep’s superior consistently and tenacity should eventually see her break down the resistance of Tomljanovic. Indeed Tomljanovic has made a habit of pushing top players but not getting over the line whilst Halep is good at battling through these matches, especially at her favourite tournament.

Prediction: Simona Halep to defeat Ajla Tomljanovic in 3 sets
