Roland Garros 2014: Simona Halep vs Andrea Petkovic

Last year Simona Halep arrived at Roland Garros ranked No. 57. A year later, she is now No. 4, having won 7 titles in the last 13 months. Coached by Wim Fissette, former coach of Kim Clijsters, Simona is the first Romanian woman since Virginia Ruzici to reach a Grand Slam singles final. Ruzici, who is now her manager, won the French Open in 1978 and reached the final again in 1980 but lost to Chris Evert.

Halep beat Petkovic quite easily in her semi-final 6-2 7-6, she has yet to lose a set in this tournament. She’ll face Sharapova tomorrow for a remake of their Madrid final. Who’s your favorite for the title? Sharapova or Halep?
