French Open 2019: Simona Halep vs Lesia Tsurenko third round - Where to watch, Live Stream Details, TV Schedule and more
It has not been the greatest of starts to the title defence for last year's women's singles champion Simona Halep at the French Open 2019. The former World No. 1 struggled with emotions and expectations in her first round and needed three sets to end the challenge of Ajla Tomljanovic.
In her second round clash with Magda Linette, Halep was poised for a comfortable victory when she inexplicably collapsed and conceded a set to the Polishwoman before regaining control for the victory. Halep even admitted after the match that she was under the weather.
Simona Halep did not have the kind of encouraging clay season this year that one would expect from the previous year's winner at Roland Garros. Her resume shows just one final this season on the merciless red dirt where she went down to Kiki Bertens.
Clearly short on confidence, Halep has been searching desperately to get back her rhythm and range. That said, even though the third seed has faced trouble in both her matches so far in Paris, she has shown oodles of the undying fighting spirit that gave her the title last year. And that should be an ominous sign for the 27th seed Lesia Tsurenko, Halep's next opponent.
The Ukrainian has never beaten Halep in six meetings. In fact, her only achievement so far against the World No. 3 has been taking a set at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships. Clearly, Tsurenko doesn't enjoy playing against a fierce competitor as Halep and the Romanian would look to add more to Tsurenko's misery when the two square off on Court Philippe-Chatrier on Saturday.
