Simona Halep is one of the toughest players to play against on tour.The third seed came back from a lackluster first set against Caroline Garcia of France to win in three. Garcia was the dominant player in set one serving better than Simona and hitting the ball better. Garcia despite losing was more efficient in break point conversions 2/3 to be precise. Simona showed her class when a break down in second set at 1-0 40-30 game point Garcia. The forehand, opening up her body,sending the game to deuce. She broke back in the sixth game and never looked back to win the set 6-4. Caroline hitting a forehand long at break point 3-2 and repeating the deed at set point 5-4. The competitive nature of the first two set made the one sided affair that is the third set all the more surprising. The Romanian utterly dominant with her ground strokes pummeling Garcia into submission to win the set to love. Watch the forehand down the line at 2-0 30-0. Must have been deflating for the Frenchwoman. She made a decent return from the serve only for Simona to hit the shot of the match with that forehand. Halep through to round three in Miami.
