There is a reason Simona Halep is the No. 1 women's tennis player in the world. Her athleticism and conditioning set her apart from the rest, and it plays right into her strengths as a tennis player. No matter how powerful an opponent is, Halep is able to cover the court, defend and hit winners from defensive positions. The longer a rally or match goes, the better chance she has of winning. With another counterpuncher on the other end, the points will be long, giving Halep the advantage. She will win her first Grand Slam title Saturday.

Caroline Wozniacki has fought back injuries and a decline in play to make her first career Australian Open final. Her resurgence into the international spotlight should not be surprising though. She has some of the best footwork on the tour and a nasty two-handed backhand that she uses to go from defense to offense instantly. Halep may be the No. 1 tennis player in the world now, but Wozniacki is hungry to erase her past struggles. She will take her first career Grand Slam in 2018 at the Australian Open.
