??? Dubai DFTC – R3 Prediction
?? (3) Simona Halep vs. ?? Lesia Tsurenko
An in-form Simona Halep is rightfully a strong favourite to continue her winning ways when she takes on Lesia Tsurenko at the third round stage in Dubai on Wednesday. Halep has won 9 of her last 11 matches and has won all 6 of her previous matches against Tsurenko.
Halep has a dominant record against Tsurenko and it’s not hard to understand why. Halep does everything better than Tsurenko, the pair have similar game styles and similar strengths, but Halep is better in every aspect. Halep easily beat Tsurenko 6-2 6-3 in Doha last week and should claim victory here with a similar score. Halep looked good yesterday in her win over Bouchard in what was a high quality match, Halep enjoys playing in Dubai where she receives great support and is a former champion having won the title in 2015.
