Simona Halep, the No. 16th-seed at Wimbledon, will meet a familiar foe in the second round today. She’ll be taking on Kirsten Flipkens, who won her first round match in straight sets. Although they’ve met a handful of times before, this is their first meeting since 2016. 

Will Flipkens show improvement against Halep, or will the higher seed cruise to the third round.

Simona Halep vs. Kirsten Flipkens Prediction and Pick

This should be a cakewalk match for Halep. She’s played Flipkens five times in her career and has beaten her every time. In those five matches, none of them went to a third set. Halep is winning an astounding 75.4% of her service games this year. She isn’t going to be broken too many times by Flipkens which makes the task of winning the match extremely difficult. 

Taking Halep to win in straight sets comes with a -240 price. Instead, I’ll look to back the UNDER in this match. Flipkens would have to either push this match to a third set or win at least eight games to hit the OVER. Halep has shown plenty of times before that Flipkens can’t challenge her, so the UNDER feels good in this match.

Lean: UNDER 19.5 Games (-120)
