It has been quite the year for Halep, after a slow start in Adelaide, she has been in the Australian Open semi-final and has won three tournaments back to back (Dubai, Prague and Rome). She arrives as the favourite, but it could be a challenging draw.
This is potentially a tough draw with a few slim leads in head to heads but some formidable opposition if things go to plan. Svitolina will need to play herself into form, and also might prefer to fly a little under the radar with eyes on the favourite Halep, and also Serena Williams to see if this is where she can win No. 24.
The reigning Australian Open champion will be trying to regain the form that took her to a maiden Slam earlier this year, but she was not able to go all the way at the US Open, and with a first round loss to a resurgent Victoria Azarenka in Rome, could arrive in Paris a little undercooked on clay.
