Halep fends off Golubic challenge to make Melbourne semifinals

Simona fought her way into the semifinals of Melbourne Summer Set 1 on Friday, outlasting No.6 seed Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 at Melbourne Park.

Halep served for the match in the second set before Golubic pushed the No.2 seed to the brink in a three-set tussle. However, Halep prevailed in a 2-hour and 35-minute barnburner to claim a spot in the last four.

It was really difficult, I have to admit,

Halep said on court, after triumphing.

I didn’t really trust I could win this match, but I fought till the end. I’m very proud of this, because in the past I was working a lot on this way.

[Golubic] played unbelievable, she was fighting till the end, all the credit to her for this beautiful match. I’m really happy that I could be a little bit stronger in the end. Winning this match means a lot.
