Simona Halep: “Serena Williams is a legend!”

On the eve of the most exceptional player clash of the Australian Open 2021, the Romanian player Simona Halep praised her rival Serena Williams. In the pre match interview she said: “Serena is a legend. The best. I must not think too much that I am playing against her, it is not a good idea.

”But I have so many encounters with her. I’ll try to play as best I can because that’s the only way you can beat her.”

After facing a nightmare opponent in the previous round, number 2 seed Simona Halep will then face the American tennis player, against whom she has already played 11 more times.

In head-to-head, Serena leads 9-3. Serena won the 2019 r16 at the Australian Open, but it must be recalled that Halep defeated Williams in the Wimbledon final of the same year. On Sunday, a 29-year-old Romanian tennis ace finished the fourth round of her Happy Slam with a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 scoring win against Roland Garros winner Iga Swiatek.

For reaching the quarter-finals for the fifth time at the Australian Open, Halep scored three aces and converted four of ten breakpoints.
