Women’s Semifinal: [CR4] Simona Halep (ROU) vs. [CR5] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN)

Wozniacki had her chances, up a set and numerous opportunities to break Halep in the subsequent sets. Yet, playing defensively, she was unable to out maneuver Halep and ended up making too many errors to defeat her.  Off the ground Halep was more consistent and more relaxed because she trusted her abilities.  Instead of using her fitness to her advantage, Wozniacki was too timid and waited for Halep to dictate play. Unfortunately for Wozniacki, that’s exactly what Halep did once she settled into the match. In the end, Halep won easily 2-6, 6-1, 6-1.  Wozniacki’s passive style is no longer working, can she become more consistently aggressive on court?
