Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

I would expect something like 6-3 6-4 for Simona.

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

The H2H is 4-4 with Simona winning 2 of the last 3 (all in 2013) including the one meeting from that year on hard-court.

I don't think Carla played that well against Watson and, if Simona repeats today performance, I fear for Carla that a demolition is on the cards. I hope not for Carla's sake and that instead we get a match where they both play close to their best. That would be awesome for the beautiful tennis that would result.

Probably Simona in 2 though.

PS Sorry to the 3 people who voted on my thread. I deleted it because I didn't initially see that I had been beaten to it by 3 minutes.

CSN could absolutely frustrate Simona and run away with it.

Simona in 3, but you never know....

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

2 sets, if Simona will have a bad day at the office than 3. I think Carla stamina will play an important role in this match.

If Simona can stay cool like today it's 2 sets.

Both can retrieve very well, and Simona as the more aggressive of the two can go into BBB mode. She didn't do that against Karo because she knew most of her shots will at least force an error, or an easy to play return. CSN will give back more balls, and not just easy balls. At the same time Simona will not have to run down hard to return strikes, so she will be in better position to play more balls.

Simona should win this in straights, Carla can be frustrating though so could be close sets.

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

Well, this is about an even of a matchup as it gets. 4-4 H2H. But it is dominated by surface. Simo is 3-1 against CSN on HCs, while CSN is 3-0 against her on clay courts. IW is a HC, but it is playing almost as slow as clay. And 6 of their 8 matches have gone to 3 sets.

I think if Simo stays consistent, she should win this. They both play with spin, but Simi is a bit more aggressive and hits through the ball better, and that will probably be the difference. And CSN's had some long matches these last 2 rounds, so it might take affect. And if she is feeling a little fatigue, Simo should outlast her in longer rallies.

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

Halep is playing really, really well. Looking forward to Halep-Serena in semis. That's probably the real final. I think Halep will win the quarterfinal pretty easily. Here's my picks for Wednesday's matches: https://passingshots.sportsblog.com/...ibas_open.html

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

I thought Watson had plenty of chances against Navarro and I expect Halep to win.
Serena-Halep sounds very likely, and the way Serena is playing, that could go either way

at this matchup.

When Simona last year was asked who is the player she likes the least to play with, she said CSN.
So, it will be very tough.

if this goes 3 sets, prepare for a long match both play very counterpuncher-y games, but i feel like simona will be determined for this not to be a push-fest

Well then Simona will at least take revenge on Nadal for his AO 4+ hours delay.

Re: Indian Wells QF: (3) Simona Halep vs (12) Carla Suarez Navarro

I change my vote, Carla in 2 easy sets... be surprised if Halep can tough this one out, Carla is a bad matchup for her.
