Tennis Prediction of the Day Aryna Sabalenka vs Simona Halep
The difference in level and experience is indisputable in favor of romance, which should not have problems tomorrow morning.
Simona has an aggressive game, the forehand works very well, and the mistakes sometimes come on duty, but she has enough time to adjust the shot.
Sabalenka is also an offensive player, which is why I think we will witness a spectacular duel.
However, Belarus sometimes has problems in the construction of the point, because it does not have the patience to build and chooses to hit decisively too early.
