Simona Halep vs Victoria Azarenka, Wimbledon R4 Preview

Wimbledon ????? R4 Match Preview:
(2) ?? Simona Halep vs ?? Victoria Azarenka

The pick of the fourth round matches at SW19 sees the second seeded Simona Halep take on a resurgent Victoria Azarenka. Halep has cruised through to the second week in London without dropping a set whilst Azarenka has already overcome a few tight battle in her progression to the second week. The most recent match between these two has an epic at the U.S Open a few years ago, which Halep won in a tight third set. Azarenka will be desperate for revenge here in what should be another memorable match between two very evenly matches combatants.

Simona Halep will be looking to reach at least the quarter-final stage at Wimbledon for the third time in the last four years when she takes to the court against Victoria Azarenka on Monday. Halep started the tournament with fairly routine straight set wins over Marina Erakovic and Beatriz Maia Haddad. Halep confirmed her spot in the fourth round with a 6-4 7-6 win over Peng Shuai. Halep’s win over Peng was a good win, saving set point in the second set tiebreak, a confidence boosting win for the Romanian over a quality opponent.

Victoria Azarenka has twice come from a set down at SW19 to advance to the second week for the fifth time. The Belarussian started her campaign with a 3-6 6-2 6-1 win over Catherine Bellis before cruising past the fifteenth seeded Elena Vesnina 6-3 6-3. Azarenka was far from her best in her third round match against Heather Watson but her strong fighting spirit was on display as she claimed a gutsy 3-6 6-1 6-4 victory.

Azarenka holds a 2-1 head-to-head record over Halep. It was the Romanian who won their only recent match, a 6-3 4-6 6-4 win at the quarter-final stage of the 2015 U.S Open, one of the matches of the year.

I’m going to side with Azarenka here. The determined former world number 1 is guaranteed to raise her level and intensity for this match, the type of showdown Azarenka thrives on. The pressure is on Halep in this match and her ability to handle pressure is questionable. There is very little to separate these two, there are some potentially deceive difference. Azarenka shows a greater willingness to be aggressive and move forward and also has a stronger mentality and toughness under pressure which will give her the slight edge in the critical moments.

Prediction: Victoria Azarenka to defeat Simona Halep in 3 sets

  1. Vika is a threat to anyone NOT named Serena or Venus. She will take down Simona in two sets. Sorry, Simona

    • Azarenka at her best is the second best players on tour (when Serena is around).. If she beats Simona she could win the title..

  2. Halep will win in 2 sets and if she beats Konta in the next round she will win Wimbledon. She plays better when not the favorite and grass is not her favorite court but she was in semis couple of years ago.

  3. Jackie legs all over tennis sites ie. mootennis exact same comment lolol. Nah it’ll go to 3 sets regardless I reckon. But maybe halep to prevail. Ostapenko in 3 and I’m hoping Woz in 3. Hope woz can force errors on coco. And. I’m in luv with the coco

  4. This could go either way. Azaeranka has great potential however, she can be a cheater which karma makes her a target at crucial moments. Halep is great in her own right. Azareanka is unreliable because she takes short cuts and their are no ‘short cuts’ so she will only cut herself short. Remember her bahavior a few days ago. Instructions from coach box. She has to visit that as a life lesson. It will return at an important time for her. With all her potential she does not believe in her ability or she is a cheater at heart.

    • Thank you. I appreciate it. They don’t affect me at all, I just feel they need to know how stupid they are.. Women’s tennis is the most unpredictable sport there is and it is even more unpredictable at this moment..
