Despite their incredible successes on the tennis court, neither Simona Halep or Caroline Wozniacki has held a grand slam trophy aloft. In that respect, both players are expected to leave everything on the court as they chase the 2018 Australian Open title. Ranked number one in the world and currently on a 12-match win-streak, Halep enters the game as favourite. After suffering two major scares this tournament, including a three-set marathon against world No. 76 Lauren Davis, the Romanian finds herself in the third major final of her career. Similarly, Wozniacki has reached the last game of a grand slam on two previous occasions, however, tough matches against Kim Clisters and Serena Williams prevented her from greater glory.

 

On the H2H front, Wozniacki has the advantage, winning four of the six matches. What’s more, the Dane claimed victory in the last meeting between the pair when she served her way to a dominant 6-0, 6-2 win. It’s with that fact in mind that plenty are snapping up the generous $2.20 odds on the No.2 seed.

 

Key Stats:

- Three of the last four matches between the pair have required a third set

- Halep’s last win over Wozniacki was in 2015

- In 2017 Wozniacki’s win percentage on hard court was 67%. Halep’s was 47%

 

Our tip: Wozniacki in three
