No.1 seed, Simona Halep, looks to make it to the 2020 WTA Dubai Open Final as she meets Jennifer Brady in the semifinals. Will Brady shock us all again or will Halep stop her finally?
Simona Halep played an absolutely incredible match against Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals. Halep was incredibly determined and was able to come back from a set down to book her spot in yet another semifinal in Dubai. Halep showed us some incredible shots, line licking forehands, and passion. Halep is the best player left in Dubai and she will know that she will have the best chance of winning it now that Karolina Pliskova is out of the tournament. Will Halep's experience get her to a title here in Dubai?
Jennifer Brady has has the perfect mixture of luck and hard work here in Dubai. Brady has come back from near losses so many times here in Dubai and she has been able to do that through her consistency when losing and the fact that her opponents lowered their level drastically. Brady will be playing freely here in Dubai now that she has no pressure as she is further than she ever imagines. Will Brady cause another upset in Dubai?
This will be the third time these two meet. Simona Halep has never lost to Brady, and unfortunately for Brady, her luck as run out. Brady just doesn't have the game or the experience to compete with Halep and Halep will completely dominate this encounter.
Simona Halep to win.
