Kontaveit superior to Halep in the final of the WTA Cluj
The Estonian faced a tough nut to crack, such as the former world number 1, the Romanian Simona Halep, who stood in the final of the tournament in her country, leaving very positive feelings as the tournament progressed, although in the decisive game for the title she was unable to stop the offensive power of the Estonian tennis player.
The match has started for the Estonian tennis player. Kontaveit quickly took a break advantage in the first set and has been very aggressive from minute 1 against a Halep who could not find a way to counteract the aggressive tennis of the Estonian. Kontaveit began commanding the grand final with a very good first set and with a backhand that wreaked havoc on a Halep that could not find her solid tennis at any point in the match.
However, the Romanian tennis player would not give up and would soon take an advantage in the second set with 2-0 and being more solid than in the first set. However, soon the Estonian tennis player would start to show her cards in the second set, taking control of the second set with her good serve and powerful backhand. Finally and after wasting several match balls, the estonia would close the match by giving up five games and showing a very high level throughout the match and obtaining as a prize to qualify for their first WTA Finals. Great victory for Kontaveit against Halep and in his country, in the WTA Cluj to arrive with the best sensations at the WTA Finals.
