New Haven final: Simona, the new giant killer

Simona Halep vs. Petra Kvitova

I don't know what Simona Halep has been taking since June, but I would sure like to have some. She has reached 4 finals since June and won 3 of them. Impressive feat for someone who was destined to be a journeywoman. Whoever her coach is will be highly sought after for transforming this petite girl into a giant killer. Can she go one up by beating Kvitova and winning her first Premier title? Kvitova was ruthless in her demolition of Zakopalova, so the Romanian might be in danger. However, given how volatile and unpredictable Petra is, I won't be surprised if she hits herself out of the courts. I always have a soft spot for underdogs. Let's go Simona!

Pick: Halep in 3 sets
