Tennis Talk

Simona Halep has already battled well past Sabine Lisicki and Victoria Azarenka in the last couple of rounds and standing in her way of her first US Open final after never getting past the fourth round before is Flavia Pennetta.

This semi-final will be their fifth meeting and second at the US Open and will also be the most important meeting between the two players with a final against Serena Williams most likely at stake with the world number one playing Roberta Vinci in the final who she leads the head to head 4-0. However Pennetta leads the head to head against Simona at 3-1 right now however the world number two did win their meeting earlier on in the year in Miami winning 6-3 7-5. Before then the last time they met was at the 2013 US Open in the fourth round where Halep lost 6-2 7-6.
