Simona Halep vs Serena Williams Tips & Predictions

Halep and Serena square off in one of the most highly-anticipated matches of the 2021 Australian Open, with a semi-final spot up for grabs on Tuesday.

For me, Serena is playing her best Grand Slam tennis since picking up her last major at the 2017 Australian Open. The legendary American has dropped just one set en route to the fourth round and that was in her last match against Aryna Sabalenka, where a second-set serving lapse saw the match extended to a decider.

Serena is looking relaxed and so far is showing no signs of buckling under the pressure as she continues to pursue an elusive 24th slam singles title.

Meanwhile, Halep has been forced to stage a couple of comebacks already in her four matches, coming back from 2-5 down in the third against Tomljanovic in the second round before recovering from a set down against Swiatek in the R16.

Halep’s incredible defence and overall consistency is keeping her in these matches against less-experience opponents, but Serena has the firepower to blow her off the court in this clash.

Serena lead their H2H 9-2, and although Halep won their last meeting in the Wimbledon final, I think we’ll get a completely different Serena in this match. Halep has been flirting with elimination at various stages throughout this tournament and might not get so lucky against an in-form Serena.
