But no matter what the rankings say, top seed Simona Halep is considered the underdog going into her match against 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. So Dayana Yastremska, an 18-year-old from Ukraine, found herself wiping away tears as she walked to the net. "I liked that. It showed that she wasn't just there to play the match, she was there to win". At the start she wanted me to do it - she asked me, "would you do it if I ask you?" It really broke my heart.
"I played many times against her", said Halep. "It's good to see that attitude".
Yastremska seemed to eventually take the defeat on the chin, posting on Instagram: "Learned here in Australian Open a great lesson for the future to come.
You did really well", Williams told an emotional Yastremska after her victory on Rod Laver Arena.

In the two Grand Slam matches she has lost since her comeback, she was poor on serve against Kerber who got the angles right while Osaka hit through her with natural power and aggression. She hasn't played since the US Open previous year, except for the Hopman Cup where she won all her matches. I think either way, regardless, I'll be ready for either opponent. You also have to question how much Halep has left in the tank considering she has only a few matches under her belt since September.
But she has steadily climbed back to a place among the elite of the game following her return to the court a year ago. Halep's only wins over Serena came in Singapore in 2014 and a walkover in the 2015 Indian Wells. "How (committed) she is to every ball", Yastremska said. Pliskova and Muguruza have not played since 2017, in which the Czech captured three of their four meetings, including their most recent 6-2, 6-2 in the round robin stages of the WTA Finals. "I will go out there and play natural and with confidence".
