Angelique Kerber vs. Simona Halep 2018 Australian Open Pick, Odds, Prediction

25 January, 2018, 02:19 | Author: John Swanson
  • Simona Halep outlasts Angelique Kerber to set up Australian Open final with Caroline Wozniacki

Her semifinal opponent will be top-seeded Simona Halep of Romania, a 6-3, 6-2 victor over sixth-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic in the last quarterfinal.

The season-opening major often throws up unexpected results, but the back-to-back upsets Monday resulted in a longshot of a quarterfinal: Chung, the first Korean to reach the last eight at a Grand Slam, vs. Sandgren, the American who had never won a Grand Slam match or beaten a top 10 player until last week. "I was just trying to play my game because I know if I would get into it, think about what everything happened with the coaches and with her, I would not be playing the best".

Nadal fended off five break points in the last game before Cilic broke his serve, then the 16-time major victor went to shake hands with the umpire and his opponent, and angrily hurled his headband into his equipment bag.

The 21 seed will play the victor of the match between No. 1 Simona Halep No. 6 Karolina Pliskova.

Government shutdown: How it affects Manhattan Project Park
Some parks are in winter season and see winter sports enthusiasts like snowmobilers, snowshoers, skiers and wildlife watchers. This stands in contrast to the last government shutdown in 2013, when gates were closed and people told to leave the park.

Simona Halep and Angelique Kerber will meet in the 2018 Australian Open semi-final after they each booked their places to the last four on Wednesday.

It has been quite a return to form for Kerber in Australia this year after she broke a 27-tournament title drought going back to her 2016 US Open triumph in the Sydney International warm-up.

A resurgent Kerber has played her way into contention for a second Australian Open title, but had to negotiate her way past a tricky Hsieh on Rod Laver Arena.

If Halep is going to win, defence will need to be the order of the day from the baseline, with good court coverage paramount to her chances.

President Donald Trump described the shooting as "an act of pure evil", while calling Paddock a "sick man, a demented man". But Lombardo, in a move that he said was unusual, did reveal some new details about the shooter and the investigation.

Kerber's expeditious victory over Keys will only boost her already soaring confidence, and will also leave her as fresh as possible for her semifinal match on Thursday.

Angelique Kerber waltzed into the semifinals of the Australian Open after crushing American Madison Keys. I was going out there and trying to playing my tennis again. I know what to expect. "I got used to everything", Halep said afterwards. "I'm feeling the ball really good", Kerber said.

"I think it will be a long match with a lot of long rallies".

"I know that I was working hard in the off-season, and I know that I can play good matches". However, Halep does have a history of burning out around this time in grand slam play, so this will be the test for the Romanian firecracker. She hardly showed any emotion and she hardly made any mistakes. "I had similar situations in the past where I found myself struggling a little bit with some injuries during the match, then I managed to win".
