Halep vs Wang Live Stream : How To Watch Miami Open Tennis Match 2019 Online Free HD TV Coverage
Romanian tennis superstar, Simona Halep has made it into the quarterfinals of the 2019 WTA Miami Open. Halep will now face Wang Qiang from China.
Wang Qiang won her previous match in straight sets to make it into this stage of the tournament. During the win, Wang returned serve exceptionally well as she won around 40% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s serve on 4 occasions. The serving was also solid for Wang Qiang as she won 82% of her service games. This is going to be a much tougher match for Wang as she is playing the number 2 seed.
On the other side of the court, Simona Halep had a very strong win in the fourth round as she beat Venus Williams in straight sets. Simona Halep served exceptionally well as she won 73% of her service points. Halep won 89% of her service games and 44% of her return games to set up a comfortable win. Halep has a very strong record at the Miami Open as she has won 73% of her matches played at this event throughout her career. This is Simona Halep’s fourth appearance at the quarterfinals of the Miami Open so she should be comfortable with the situation of this fixture.
Simona Halep and Wang Qiang have played once in the past in a match that Simona Halep won. The match was played in 2018 at the WTA Indian Wells Open where Simona Halep beat Wang Qiang in straight sets.
Taking everything into notice, I am going to pick Simona Halep to win this match. Wang has played well throughout this tournament but Halep has more experience in the big matches and has been playing better tennis. Halep is higher ranked and I see her being too strong
With Petra Kvitova and Naomi Osaka out of the tournament, Simona Halep has the opportunity to be No. 1 once more if she makes the final of the Miami Open. She has to win two more matches to get there, beginning with Qiang Wang in the quarter-finals.
After a scrappy win against Polona Hercog in the previous round, it was far more straight forward for Halep in round four. She eased past Venus Williams 6-3 6-3, rarely being troubled by the former No. 1. It was backed by a strong serving performance, something the Romanian was definitely pleased with afterwards. “I’m more confident. And when I saw today that I can win easy games with my serve, gave me a lot of confidence because she’s a very good returner.” she said.
Wang has established herself on the tour over the past few years, finally hitting the top 20 in large part due to her success in the Asian swing last year. She will be ranked at least No. 16 after this tournament but could go as high as No. 10 if she wins the title. She beat Yafan Wang 7-5 6-4, striking at the end of each set to take the victory.
Halep does have very minor knee issues but it shouldn’t be something that impacts her too much. “I’m feeling okay, much better than yesterday. A little bit tired but it’s normal. The knee was fine, it’s good that tomorrow I have day off for singles.” she said. Wang is much improved from the player that lost 7-5 6-1 to Halep last year at Indian Wells but with the No. 1 in her grasp, Halep will be desperate to advance.
Kvitova is bidding to rise to No.1 for the first time in her career. Halep most recently occupied the top spot in January, before Osaka overtook her by winning the Australian Open title.
By advancing to the quarterfinals with a tough three-set win over Yulia Putinseva, Karolina Pliskova will return to the Top 5 after Miami. She will rise to No.5 by making the quarterfinals and No.4 with a semifinal or runner-up finish. If she wins the title, she could move as high as No.2, depending on Halep and Kvitova’s results.
Angelique Kerber will be No.4 or No.5 (if Pliskova reaches semifinals) after Miami. Kerber lost in the third round of Miami to Bianca Andreescu.
Kiki Bertens, who lost in three sets to Ashleigh Barty in the Round of 16, will move to a career-high No.6 after Miami, followed by Elina Svitolina at No.7. Bertens heads to the Volvo Car Open next week, where she is the defending champion.
Miami Open defending champion Sloane Stephens, who lost in the third round to Tatjana Maria, will drop to No.8.
Ashleigh Barty is closing in on making her Top 10 debut. The Australian can secure her Top 10 debut after Miami by reaching the semifinals, or if Wang Qiang does not win the title. Barty can move as high as No.9 if she reaches the semifinals.
Barty would move to No.11 if she loses in the quarterfinals to Kvitova and Wang Qiang wins the title.
Wang Qiang will move to No.15 or No.16 (if Kontaveit reaches the semifinals) after Miami, the highest ranking held by a Chinese player since the week of November 3, 2014 when Li Na was No.9.
Wang could move to No.14 or No.15 (if Kontaveit reaches the final) by reaching the semifinals at Miami. She could move to No.13 or No.14 (if Kontaveit wins the title) as runner-up in Miami, and could move as high as No.9 or No.10 by winning the title.
Anett Kontaveit is projected to be No.18 or No.19 (if Hsieh wins the title) by reaching the quarterfinals in Miami. The Estonian will move to No.14 or 15 by reaching the semifinals and as high as No.14 as runner-up and as high as No.12 by winning the title.
Hsieh Su-Wei is projected to move to No.24 or No.25 by reaching the quarterfinals at Miami. Hsieh would equal her career-high ranking of No.23 by reaching the semifinals or finishing as runner-up. She held the No.23 ranking for one week from February 25, 2013 to March 3, 2013.
Marketa Vondrousova will reach a career-high ranking of No.43 by reaching the quarterfinals. The Czech teenager could climb to No.38 by reaching the semifinals. She would rise to No.31 as a finalist and as high as No.24 by winning the title.
