Shot of the Day: Simona Halep
Simona Halep (ROM) hits the shot of the day at the 2022 Melbourne summer set.
The first major of the season is on the horizon and the action is heating up Down Under.
Nadal made a victorious return to action with his first ATP title since last May, upping his chances of claiming a 21st major title in Melbourne.
Halep will play Veronika Kudermetova in the final, after Osaka pulled out due to an abdominal injury.
The former world No. 1 battled an inspired opponent and a shaky serve to ultimately advance in three grueling sets at the Melbourne Summer Set.
The lesson of the day is always bring two hats to the court.
