Simona Halep v Ajla Tomljanovic Head to Head
There have been three previous matches on the WTA circuit and one match played at the Fed Cup and Halep has beaten the 72nd-ranked Tomljanovic ever single time. Their last meeting came at the Adelaide International last year, and Halep came away 6-4, 7-5 to make it to the quarterfinal.
Halep Hauls Cabrera Out of the Tournament
An injury to Halep meant she wasn’t at her 100% while playing in the quarterfinal of the Gippsland Trophy against Ekaterina Alexandrova, and the result of that was a 6-2, 6-1 drubbing for the Romanian.
Tomljanovic Too Strong for Doi
In her times, Misaki Doi has been a player to reckon but more recently her form has fallen away and she has struggled to get going. Tomljanovic took full toll of the same in their first round match, with the Aussie registering a 6-2, 6-1 win over the Japanese player to march into the second round.
Halep v Tomljanovic Prediction and Tip
Halep should have no difficulties here, starting off at 1/10 to win this one and 4/7 to do that in straight sets. Backing Halep to make it 5-0 against Tomljanovic.
