France, Paris-On September 30, local time, the 2020 French Open began the second round of women's singles. The top seed Halep defeated compatriot Begu 6-3 6-4 and advanced to the third round smoothly.
"It has never been easy to play against other Romanian players and Irina. We played many times, and none of them was easy," Halep said after the game. "She is a very strong opponent. The serve is very strong. The ground is very heavy today, so my service is not very good, but I handled it well in the end and made the right decision when needed."
The derby was scheduled to take place at the Susan Langlen Stadium. Halep quickly got into shape at the beginning and maintained his advantage all the way to the end. It took 1 hour and 23 minutes to seal the victory, and he will also have a domestic record on the tour. Rewritten as a perfect 13-0.
"Before the game, I was a little nervous, but I was also very confident. I knew what level I could play, so I wasn't particularly nervous. It was just a little bit at the beginning, but then I forgot who I was playing against. I just wanted to Try to win the game."
The second in the world will strive to reach the second week of the French Open for the sixth time. In the next round, he will face the 25th seed Anisimova again, who swept compatriot Pera 6-2 6-0. Last year the French Open met in the quarter-finals, and the American teenager ended Halep's journey to defend his title.
"It's been a year, so it's hard to say what will happen now. But I will discuss with the coach, I know the next game will be a tough game, because her return is very heavy and flat, the game will be very difficult," Haller Pu said.
"I still remember the game last year, and I also remember that I didn't perform at the ideal level, so I will make some adjustments to try to play better and seize opportunities."
