14/15 Wins for Simona Halep on the Grass – The Champion has lost only 1 of her last 15n matches!
14/15 Wins for Simona Halep on the Grass – The Champion has lost only 1 of her last 15n matches! Simona Halep won her first match at Wimbledon since she won the Venus Rosewater Dish three years ago. The 2019 Wimbledon winner beat a dangerous opponent in the first round of her return to the All England Club on April 28. In her 2022 opener, she beat Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-2. Muchova was probably the most formidable first-round opponent for any of the seeds. Not only was she ranked in the Top 20 last year before an abdominal injury took her off the tour for up to six months, but in her only two previous main draw appearances at Wimbledon (in 2019 and 2021), she made it to the quarterfinals. But Halep had 16 winners and only 9 unforced errors to beat the Czech in 65 minutes on No. 1 Court. She never had a breakpoint. The Romanian has won 14 of her last 15 grass-court matches.
