Re: Rome R2: Vondrousova exposes Simona Halep once again 2-6 7-5 6-3
Halep just doesn't seem to have the lethality needed to put away Vondrousova in a point. She can't hit through her reliably (see the unforced error count) and her complete lack of competence at the net means she can't even think about punishing a dropshot, much less a generically short ball. Variety won today, because Vondrousova always found a way to win the point before Halep could (how could she not - she has so many more ways to play a shot). This is going to be a matchup Halep wants to avoid going forward I think.
