AO 2020: Simona Halep on Her Way to the Third Grand Slam?

A finalist two years ago at the Australian Open, Halep puts great hopes on coach Darren Cahill, who returned to the official team of the Romanian player. An Australian himself, Darren Cahill was the only coach who managed to withstand Simona Halep’s temperament. Not only that, but Darren Cahill modeled it in such a way that Simona Halep got to play an absolutely sensational tennis.

Even if the Australian Open will be televised on almost all sports channels, free or paid, there will be many people who will want to watch it online. For those in Europe, there is a very good alternative with the help of Eurosport Player, which will broadcast all the matches online.

Before the Australian Open, Halep will play in the inaugural tournament in Adelaide. Considered the best warm-up for the upcoming Australian Open, the Adelaide tournament will feature many top 10 players at the start. Even though Simona Halep is not considered the main favorite at the Australian Open, she still played the 2018 final, losing to Caroline Wozniacki. When Halep won Wimbledon in 2019, she started as an underdog. It is possible that the Romanian will manage to repeat the performance of 2018. For this, it remains to see how well it will perform in Adelaide.

Women’s tennis has not yet generated rivalries like men’s tennis. However, some interesting duels are emerging between young players, such as Osaka and Andreescu. For the Australian Open, the absolute favorite is Barty, who also has the advantage of the form she is in, as well as the fact that she will play at home. However, we can’t say that Barty will definitely win, because there are other players who can win the trophy.
