THE LOWDOWN

ELENA RYBAKINA

Rybakina lost her first set of the tournament in her quarter-final with Ajla Tomljanovic but she did not let that derail her as she won the following two sets to book her place in this, the first Grand Slam semi-final of her career.

SIMONA HALEP

This is certainly not unfamiliar territory for Simona Halep though, who has been installed as the tournament favourite off the back of her performances in the second week of the tournament, most recently seeing off Amanda Anisimova 6-2, 6-4.

THE PREDICTION

2019 champion Simona Halep took her Wimbledon winning streak to 12 matches when she eliminated Amanda Anisimova and she is looking primed to clinch her third Grand Slam title if she manages to maintain the level she has displayed so far. Rybakina was a slow starter in her own quarter-final encounter and Halep will jump all over her if the same happens again. The extra experience that the Romanian holds in these occasions could be invaluable here and she is tipped to see off Rybakina in two hard-fought sets.
