Under siege at the hands of Iga Swiatek, Simona Halep adjusted, then thrived, wresting control of her clash with the Polish star to move into the Australian Open quarterfinals
Report from australianopen.com
Halep’s 3-6 6-1 6-4 win sends her through to the last eight at Melbourne Park for the fifth time, where she will meet Serena Williams.
The victory avenged Halep’s loss at Roland Garros last year to the 19-year-old Swiatek, who went on to win that event to become the sport’s newest Grand Slam champion.
I have experience, I have so many matches against her. After tomorrow, I will just try to enjoy myself on court and try my best, because you only can beat Serena if you play your best.
