??? BNPPO19, Indian Wells – R4 Prediction
?? (2) Simona Halep vs. ?? Marketa Vondrousova
Simona Halep looks like a strong favourite to make her way through to the quarter-finals at the BNP Paribas Open when she takes on Marketa Vondrousova on Tuesday. This will be the first time Halep has come up against Vondrousova, I suspect this will not be a match-up that causes the Romanian too many problems.
Halep has looked good in her first couple of matches in Indian Wells. The courts suit Halep’s game very well, the former champion should probably be considered the favourite to win the title from here. Vondrousova is on the rise but I don’t think she has the game to trouble Halep on this surface. Vondrousova doesn’t have the consistent power or great stamina to trouble Halep, without either of those traits Vondrousova is in trouble. Halep is match tough but fresh and ready to roll.
