A year after winning the first Major of her career at the French Open, Simona Halep hasn’t been able to find her best form this year so far on the clay. The Romanian has a 20-8 win-loss record for the year and failed to win the title in Madrid where she went down to Kiki Bertens in the final.

While she did get a handful of matches on the red dirt in the Spanish capital before arriving in Paris, the former World No. 1 has clearly been short on confidence. The struggles were evident even in her first round at the French Open 2019, where she needed three sets to end the challenge of Ajla Tomljanovic. Halep, later on, admitted that she felt the emotion and burgeoning pressure on her shoulders on her return to the scene of her greatest triumph.

Having said that, the fact that she managed to drop just one game in the final set in her 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Tomljanovic indicates that Halep did get back into her groove towards the latter stages of her opening round match. And that should be a massive boost of confidence for the third seed as she meets the 87th ranked Magda Linette for the first time in her career.

The Polish player has a dismal 12-13 win-loss record for the year and has won only a couple of matches on clay this season. Halep should ideally not have much trouble in getting past her for a third-round berth in the year’s second Slam.
