Re: AO R2: Simona Halep brushes  Alisa Kleybanova off the court, 6:4, 7:6.
Halep played outstanding for most of the time.
Kleybanova with too many errors - her net approaches were not really dangerous
She has to work on her fitness and speed again and again. Still a good fight.
Halep was great, SHE WILL DO THE QUARTERS here.
She is one of the most talented players between 50 and 100.
In the first set Halep was choking from 5-4 40-15 to 40-40 but managed to win the 1st set and in the second set she was a break ahead twice. Klebs returned brillantly in two games and reached the tie-break.
In the tie-break Halep was very focused and she played an outstanding passing shot to 6-1 and managed to win easily.
