Tennis | Sloane Stephens vs Simona Halep
Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

We have reached the final of the WTA Rogers Cup event in Montreal. This title will be won be either American superstar, Sloane Stephens, or world number 1, Simona Halep. These are two of the best players in the world and have been playing exceptional tennis all tournament. This is a big WTA tournament and both players will be desperate to win so we should be able to watch an exciting and hard-fought tennis match.

Sloane Stephens has looked exceptionally dominant all throughout the competition. The number 3 seed is yet to lose a set and no other player has looked like they have a chance of beating her. Her semifinal win was exceptionally convincing as she managed to make the number 5 seeded player look very ordinary. This will be a harder test for Sloane Stephens as she is playing a great player and it will be very interesting to see if the American can repeat her dominant displays against Simona Halep.

On the other side of the coin, Simona Halep will look to win another WTA title. The Romanian had a scare in the opening round of the tournament but has followed that by winning the rest of her matches very convincingly. Simona Halep is a very well rounded player and it is hard to see any weaknesses in her game. Furthermore, Simona Halep looks very focused on this tournament which will mean that she is going to be extremely difficult to beat.

This should be an exceptional tennis match because we have two very good players. That being said, there can only be one winner and I am going to predict that winner to be Simona Halep. While Sloane Stephens has looked very strong, I think she is not as well-rounded a player as Simona Halep. Furthermore, Simona Halep is much more experienced. These two factors should determine the winner. We are getting a decent price to wager on Simona Halep winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest we make.

 

Pick:
Simona Halep
