Jessica Pegula vs Simona Halep : Prediction
Despite the fact that Halep has won two grand slams, she hasn’t been consistent enough this season. She’s been having calf issues lately, which is causing her to make unforced errors. Jessica Pegula, on the other hand, is in the form of her life, with an ATP rating of 30. She has won a lot of titles this year, both in singles and doubles. She has a chance to defeat the former world number one.
Our predictions: Pegula to win in straight sets.
