Simona Halep is about to start her Australian Open campaign where she is seeded no.1, but she has to go through a rather tricky draw.

Ironically, the Romanian sensation will face Kaia Kanepi that surprised her in the 1st round of the last US Open after playing a tennis out of this world. Later on, from the 3rd round, every match could be a slam final.

Last year Simona was the runner-up in Melbourne where she lost in the final against Caroline Wozniacki after an amazing run.

I have a huge passion for Roger Federer, a great respect for Rafael Nadal and I am interested in the newcomers. Aryna Sabalenka and Naomi Osaka are my favorite players on the WTA tour.

My opinion Simona has a tough draw with Kanepi being the 1st oppenant i feel like she is strong mentally&physically enough that she can win the match the confidence is there as well and if she can keep that focus and stay calm she will be fine perfection is the name of the game!
