Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Romanian tennis superstar, Simona Halep is set to play at the 2019 WTA Rogers Cup in Toronto. Halep will begin her tournament in the second round where he will play against Jennifer Brady from the United States.
Halep will begin her tournament in the second round as she received a bye due to her high seeding. Simona Halep enters this tournament following a supreme campaign at Wimbledon where she won her second Grand Slam title. Halep was outstanding in the final as she defeated Serena Williams in straight sets. Halep was dominant throughout the match as she only lost 4 games against an elite opponent. Moving onto the Rogers Cup, Simona Halep will be very confident. Halep has an outstanding record at the Rogers Cup as she is the reigning champions. Halep has won the Rogers Cup twice meaning she will be very comfortable with the conditions at this tournament.
On the other side of the coin, Jennifer Brady enters this match having defeated Kristina Mladenovic in straight sets. It was a dominant display by Brady as she won 88% of her service games and 5 return games. Brady was dominant as she only lost 3 games in the entire match. Brady has been in very good form as she recently made the semifinals of the Nottingham Open. Despite her results, this is expected to be a very tough match for Jennifer Brady as she is playing against an exceptional opponent in Halep.
This will be the first time that Simona Halep and Jennifer Brady will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Jennifer Brady has played well in this tournament but I see her losing this match. Simona Halep has been in terrific form and the Romanian superstar seems very confident following her win at Wimbledon. Simona Halep has won the Rogers Cup twice and it shows that she is very comfortable with this tournament. Halep is the stronger player and I see her winning this match with some ease.
